Traditional Furniture Styles. Instead of focusing on ornately decorated furniture, choose simpler pieces that will beautifully blend your modern apartment and traditional decorating style. Combine clean lines with opulent fabrics to incorporate the best of both decorating worlds. Choosing smaller pieces will also help keep your apartment looking sleek and spacious. Accessorizing a sofa or loveseat with a few throw pillows or a comfortable throw is also a great way of combining comfort and style. Dark colored wood can help add a traditional look. However, by choosing pieces that feature simple lines instead of carved detailing, you’ll also add a sleek and stylish look.
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.
