i’m thinking about doing these videos from time to time to answer some of the questions i get from you all! what do you think? if you have any questions for me for anything lifestyle/design, etc. related, please comment and ask… i read all the comments!
here are the two photos i reference in the video…
brainfreeze987 Tweeted me this question “
@mrkatedotcom wats a good idea 4 mashing modern n country bumpkin? My bf is a redneck and likes extreme country look I like modern n classic” ….you can watch my answer in the video where i advise her to decorate with clean lines that are characteristic of modern design but to bring in a country vibe by using raw wood instead of the usual treated, painted, lacquer, etc. finishes that are found in modern design. i think the above photos are successful in blending these two styles.
go shopping at the thrift stores or flea markets together and see if there is anything you two like together with these mesh of styles in mind. get a big farmhouse wood table and then pair modern chairs with it. or paint your walls a contemporary gray and then have a rustic coffee table. keep things clean and neat with purposeful decor elements which looks good with any design.
