Lovely mix of old & new

Happy Monday lovelies, I hope you had a wonderful weekend! 


I discovered the home of prop and fashion stylist Rosy Strazzeri-Fridman and was immediately drawn to the stunning mix of old and new pieces she has used to create a home full of charm and sophistication.

To decorate, Rosy combined antique collectibles, along with vintage flea market finds which have translated into a home that has an incredible amount of character. 


The kitchen is a stand out for me, where the beautiful Carrara marble bench tops and modern bar stools have are mixed with an antique chandelier and mirror - so unexpected, but very lovely!


And again in the living area, the modern sofa and coffee table are juxtaposed with the antique mirrors and vintage porcelain pieces.


I'm all for mixing old and new and think it adds so much character to a home; what do you think?

  13. Hi Rachel!!! I am always into mixing old with new, that way you get an eclectic mix without having to try too hard. My fav pick has to be that kitchen. I love the idea of exposed shelf's with crockery in them - to die for!!!
