I'm having some design issues with our new house... The style of the house is very modern, almost asian inspired in it's design... But my interior design tastes are headed towards a more french provincial sort of style... I have no idea how to combine the two, or if I should just give up and focus on the sleeker, more modern and simple style that I also enjoy...

^ That's a tough one, B ...

Could you maybe post a few pix of French provincial things you like, and maybe we can brainstorm about how it could mix with modern?

I have a few modern touches in my house ... but everything absolutely must be cozy & warm, which modern has a tendency not to be. It can be, though, everything is possible

Belowen Tables could be cozy and provincial, and then the chairs would be more sleek and so on. You can def. make it work if you keep the colours to a minimum. Like creme, white and black with splashes of blue (or something else). I think that would work.

Just got a bunch of stuff from Ikea, of course






Haven't found a place for these vases yet
This isn't exactly what I bought, but it's pretty similar

ikea.dk, my pics

My appartment is tiny, so everything has to be really light... But I must say that I love my couch. I take my best naps in it

^ Hello, panda teddy

I made sure when I bought my sofa that it was long enough for me to stretch out on & take a nap. (So important to test drive sofas ) I did not factor dogs into the equation though

my house is a 1920's craftsmen, with hardwood floors and lovely built ins, etc. My style is sort of shabby chic but with a more modern, quirky twist to it. A great deal of the things in my house are fabulous finds from thrift/resale shops. I am not big on matchy matchy anything. My sister came to visit and she goes " you know what I like about your house? Nothing really matches" I guess the same is sort of true in how I dress

We had to use light colours, our appartment is SO darn tiny, you wouldn't believe it..

I used to be a really mis-matchy person and buy only vintage like chaneladdict. But BF likes it fresh and clean, so I caved in Well, I kept my mirror and dining table. Only because they're from my great grandmother.

ta-ta
Panda says hello

That's another thing... BF hates Panda He once put it on the oven!

^ BF doesn't sound very flexible Tell him beware the revenge of the teddies ... they're not as harmless as they look if you really tick them off :p

For me to live with someone, I think there would have to be some very good taste involved, or a clear understanding that I am in charge of decor

I actually think it's great if two people can kind of forge a new personal style together ... but it seems like most of the time the input is "not this, not that ..." I find long lists of no-nos a huge bore
