Old World Meets New World

I had a reader ask for some help decorating her new townhouse on a budget! She is a single mom with an adorable little boy so I am happy to help get the inspiration flowing.

She is really into eclectic decorating- mixing antiques with modern pieces.

I would describe her vision as “Old World Meets New World” 🙂

For her family room, she is looking for a comfy gray couch with a pop of colour in the throw pillows. I think it would be great to find an old trunk for her coffee table that she could fix up.


And could translate to this with the right mood lighting….


For her kitchen dining area, I think it should look rustic, yet stylish and definately be toddler friendly! A great pedestal table (possibly off kijijii) along with some ikea slipcovered chairs would be great! (plus you can just throw them in the wash)

Although her son is just a toddler right now, she wants him to be able to grow into the room. She asked for something rustic, surfer and hip. I thought it would be great to add an old vintage map on the wall, some striped bedding with a chic ikea daybed. All very cost-effective pieces!

Now for her bedroom: she wants an upholstered headboard, has painted a gray accent wall and has a beautiful painting. So here is a picture that I think fits perfectly into her bedroom…


Hope you enjoy the home deocorating inspiration on this chilly winter day!!!
