Singpaore Decorating: Sophisticated Red & Blue


Sometimes the biggest design challenges are blending the old and the new. One of my clients just moved from the US with a number of lovely, but very traditional red and blue Persian rugs {like below!} - the problem was, their new apartment was sleek, modern and open. My solution? Bridge the gap with classic but clean pieces and unite everything with a rich palette of reds and blues. We kept one existing sofa and ordered a second with a more contemporary shape in a warm tobacco hue. We then added some sophisticated yet fresh pattern with a host of new throw pillows and another area rug in a subtle geometric. Finally, an abstract painting and oversized Chinese red sideboard brought in so much texture and a pop of lively color at the same time! 

Have you ever attempted to blend the old and the new?
