37. Combining Eras
Very few people set out to intentionally turn their living spaces into time capsules, but that’s precisely what can happen if one era’s style, especially if it’s very distinct, is plastered all over a room without any variation. Mid-century Modern, in particular, can become a victim of this phenomenon. 2021 is all about incorporating trends from multiple eras to make a layered, multi-faceted look that naturally draws the eye throughout the entire room. Combining a modern accent with a vintage piece can put a unique personal stamp on the place and avoid the dreaded museum vibe of one-note vintage decorating.
