I get emails all the time from people in their late 20s and 30s who are regretting the furniture purchases they invested in before they had time to figure out their style. They all are wishing they had mixed in some more modern pieces with their traditional ones. I tell them to not start over and just to change their art. You can have the most traditional sofa from Pottery Barn or Restoration Hardware and if you have the right pillows and very modern art, the mix will be perfect.
I like the furniture and fabrics to be pretty, and the art to be arresting. Even a little bit quirky.
And, good news! One of my favorite art sources, 20×200, is offer up SIX gift certificates for grabs! They have an amazing collection of limited edition prints from a curated group of world-famous and up-and-coming artists. The best part is the art is super affordable. 8×10 prints starts at just over $20.
Here’s what I would buy for the brownstone:
These are two different pieces, but I like the way they look together.
