Style Clash / by Julie Brownson

Blending contemporary furniture, art and decoration with period features can be tricky. In fact blending any distinctive styles is tricky; finding the right balance to embrace aspects of more than one style is the kind of alchemy we adore. The Jeff Koons exhibition at the Palace of Versailles inspired our borderline obsession with this approach to design.

Vogue Living Australia recently featured the home gallery of Thayse Viegas, Casa Canvas, in Brianza 40 minutes away from Milan which showcases incredible furniture, art and design from emerging talents in the setting of a stunning home. We are going forward into 2019 striving to achieve this kind of alchemy combining interior architecture, design and curation with a plea that period features are loving restored rather than ripped out. Happy New Year!
