Flipping the mix

Did you ever notice that it is rare to see a room with modern furniture and classic art? The mix, if there is one, seems to generally be classic furnishings with modern art. Its an easy favorite. The kick that an abstract can give to a room that otherwise could seems stuffy is a no brainer but why not flip that and combine modern favorites with a classic old portrait or other traditional art?

What do you think? Which is your favorite way to mix styles?

I love both! Ali from the blog From the Right Bank does this very well!

I have never given it any thought. I guess I like it all mixed up, like my salads and cocktails.

I believe I like the second image! There is something moody and dark about it. This is a first for me as I usually love light and airy spaces. :)
