Mid-century modern eclectic decor brings in the energy of the vital source, grounding the space with natural materials and old rustic woods, and then brings in beautiful textures and brilliant hues with new and vintage artistic accents. Renovating a building that has historical character, like the 1920s Spanish Colonial home in Miami, it’s all about striking a balance between the old and the new, making the home holistically complete while still honoring its heritage. Keeping the original rustic oak ceiling beams, floors and the french windows intact is crucial to the renovation.
While the main footprint of the home did not change, almost every other element of the kitchen, bathrooms, guest room, and living room changed. Elegant and simple lighting, barn doors, marble tile floors, and breathtaking design, the energy flows in the house very simply and systematically. Mixing a cool hip New York style with contemporary Southern design meant decorating with mid-century rustic tables and armoires mixed with unique antiques and bold patterns.
Step into a bold color palette, by choosing a vibrant hue, like purple, for a hallway or powder room. It’s unexpected and catches the eye and a perfect backdrop for showcasing your eclectic art. An old window frame or arch on the wall with your curated art collection set against a purple wall!!! Stupendous and holistic!
Decorating with furniture made by hand from reclaimed woods and functional art that has a history, a meaning, a reason that defines its presence, is seen in the antique armoires with old doors carved with sun rays and floral designs. An 18th-century Indian console, and a cocktail table made from old windows with a lovely distressed carpet completes the picture.
Envision your home from a holistic viewpoint, each room balances the other such that the energy flow is welcoming and energizing. Bringing the old world vibes with the tree of life barn doors into the mix creates a home that will never feel outdated.
Turquoise and vintage blue patina accent tables are chic and adds a playfulness to the otherwise simple room. Repurpose an antique tibetan herbal mortar into a coffee table using it as a low seating to relax while sipping your herbal teas. The healing energy of the 200 years old solid wood herbal mortar envelops you in its warmth.
Bringing nature into your home is healing, find a few unique elements like the natural sandstone buddha and surround it with green plants and crystals, creating a vortex of energy. A luxurious and serene, calming home in which you feel relaxed and comfortable, old world architecture and decor are immense treasures as well.
