Hi, I'm Kelli Ellis of Kelli Ellis Interiors, at Ambiance Home Collections, telling you how to incorporate antique and traditional furniture. When you're combining antique and traditional furniture, the only thing you need to remember is to unify a color. So you want to find a color that's true to all pieces. For example, this is a gorgeous antique piece, and when you look at it, you notice it has a lot of warmth to it, a lot of warmth in the wood, maybe orange, orange-y, just warm tones. And so, when you're bringing colors into the room and you're combining pieces, anything will go. Yes, I said this. Anything will go if it has the same color feel. OK? So perfect example is the sofa behind me. This also has the same warmth to it, so side by side, they look gorgeous. And the reason it looks OK, is because of that same warm tone that's run through everything you see. Same with the decor, as smaller pieces, like the tray table. Again, it's got the warmth to it, it has the same fixture finishes, so again it's going to go no matter what you put in here. This could be an Asian style piece, this could be a carved piece, this could be anything you can dream of, as long as it has that same unifying color, it will go in the room. It could be a family heirloom, it could be Grandmother's favorite treasure, again, as long as it has that same color, that same unifying color, you're good to go. Once again, I'm Kelli Ellis telling you how to combine antique and traditional furniture. If you have any other questions, go to
