Mixing Old and New

The entire bedroom is made up of a mix of old and new pieces. A tufted armchair, previously covered with a muddy-toned, dated fabric, is a family heirloom. To update it for its spot in the reading corner, a faint shade of lavender – very close to the wall color -- was used. The armchair is paired with a transitional style side table featuring a gold-leafed steel base and travertine top to keep the space feeling up to date.
