When mixing and matching, remember the 80-20 rule: As long as 80% of your interior is unified by the same style, period, or philosophy, you can deviate with the other 20%. A fine antique can work in a modern space, just as long as there is a unifying factor. For a traditional pattern-filled room, make it look more contemporary and allow a visual breathing space by incorporating solid expanses of color.
