Bridging the Design Gap. If you think that a modern living room can’t be decorated in a traditional style, think again. In fact, adding traditional touches can add a sense of warmth and charm that is often missing in many contemporary styles. Although you might not want to decorate in a strictly traditional style, there are certainly ways of blending sleek sophistication with traditional charm and grace. For example, you can bridge the design gap by choosing traditional furniture styles in cool colors such as gray, blue and sage, which will work wonderfully with the room’s modern architectural features.
Some people like the idea of dividing even a small vanity with cabinet on one side and drawers on the other. Larger items can be stored in the cabinet and small items can be organized in the drawers. If you have small children, you can also place locks on the drawers used to store potentially dangerous items and cleaning substances.
