Living Room Inspiration: Style Mash-Up

As we are within days of concrete pouring at our new house, we’ve started talking about our interior house design more. I’ve shared a lot about our layout and some design inspirations for our master, bathroom, and kitchen, and now I’m thinking about our living room. We still haven’t pulled the trigger on the perfect accent chairs, but we will be using our current living room couches. Some of our style from the old house will be transferring over to the new house and we’ll be changing some parts of it up. We had some modern pieces mixed in with classic and a touch of industrial and rustic in each room. I think our master bedroom was a great example of these styles mash-ups.

Our master bathroom had a similar mix of styles: modern sinks with traditional faucets, a rustic mirror frame, and modern, dark vanity with traditional drawer and door pulls.

For our new house, we will be going with all white walls, warm wood floors, and a mix of furniture. To give a better visual of what we are hoping to incorporate into the living room, I love these rustic pieces of furniture from Sauder. I think they will fit perfectly with the style we are going for. How cool is this shelving unit? I love how it looks like a card catalogue, but has plenty of large storage space.

These modern shelves would also look great in the living room. Add in some white ceramic dishes and some antique finds, it has that great mix of modern and traditional.

How do you mix styles? What types of furniture do you look for when designing a living room? For more ideas on urban classic design, check out this Pinterest board.

  1. Jessie! you have some great ideas! As you know I love to mix antiques with traditional design and also a touch of rustic. I might bring in modern pieces in vases and accessories. I have always gone by the rule to collect what you love. I have pulled out pieces that I have collected years ago and then incorporated in things that I am doing for today, like a white soup tureen to be used as a holder for moss covered balls or small anique dishes used in a bathroom for guest soups! I love this look and it puts a personal touch to your home.
