Looking at an empty white room can be quite overwhelming. Which look do you want to go for? Modern or Vintage? I LOVE the idea of both. But which one to choose? Modern is simple, clean, fresh. But the "homey" feeling is missing. And not to mention where do you put all your STUFF? I would have a tough time with this one. Vintage definitely captures the homey feeling, along with the lovingly restored look. But if choosing to go vintage, you lose that minimalistic appeal.
I think this is the right balance. Modern + Vintage. Innovative + Traditional. Buy classic, modern pieces and fill the room with vintage decor!
