Paris – the City of Love – is well known for it’s landmark architecture that ranges from ancient buildings like the Hotel de Sens to modern works of art like the Louvre Pyramid. This eclectic mix of old and new is seen through-out Paris and was the inspiration for this week’s Decor Scrapbook.
The centerpiece of this room is the beautiful Rockstar Sofa in a classic grey with throw pillows in a perfect combination of modern symmetrical prints and classic florals. This sets the tone for a beautiful room that brings together modern and classic pieces in perfect harmony. On the walls, antique floral prints are given a modern update in crisp, clean grey frames. The varying shades of grey on the damask area rug give this classic print a modern twist. The Marseilles Chest adds a classic feel with its smoky blue color and antique-inspired design that compliments the Rockstar sofa beautifully.
Finish the look with a selection of decor pieces that bring together old and new for a perfectly pulled together room. Here we’ve picked a modern porcelain bowl filled with home made “yarn” balls, dinnerware pieces that bring together the colors of the room and a lamp that combines a classic style with a crisp modern shade for a perfect finish.
