Old and new

Posted on Sun, 7 Oct 2012 by KiM

As I’ve stated on this blog at least a dozen times, I love a space that is a combination of old and new. Modern blending with traditional. Opposing genres is unexpected and this tension really does it for me. The apartment below is a dream. Old world architecture that is to die for, mixed with rustic, classic and modern furnishings. The resulting juxtaposition is stunning. And OMG take a close look at the detail in the bedroom ceiling. (Via Le case di Elixìr)

Awesome…except for the tufted sofa and bed..a tad too much… ceilings are amazing!

So true to life in Italia!

So so beautiful! Loved the couch and the color palette in the living area. The bedroom is so classy!

This design is both beautiful and functional. So often they're pretty but I think about how I would function in the space and I know I wouldn't be able to live there, but this is great. I love the aisle of cupboards in the last picture.

OMG, GORGEOUS ! I love everything, each detail, furniture, mirror, ornament, frame, the bedroom is a princess room! I want the same!!! 😉

One of the best posts! Love it ….love the old wooden beams of the ceilings…combined with the concrete wall!!…what a contrast…!..the tufted sofa , modern white kitchen design with stainless steel ducts against the wood are spectacular…Overall great combinaton of old and new , cold and warm, modern and classical , makes the apartment unique and interesting …the use of white expands and gives light to the space ……well done!

I don't like the old wooden beams of these ceilings because it looks dirty and gives a claustrophobic feel to the room. Same with the stenciled concrete walls. Not impressed at all…

best post ever. would have loved to see a detail of the wall frieze too. thanks for the great eye candy.

Is there any way you can let us know where the dresser is from? I have fallen in love with this room, and need help finding a similar dresser.
