The Secret to Mixing Old with New Decor
with HGTV personality, Tiffany Brooks, who offers a ‘how to’ when combining old with new

2014 is underway and it’s time to make resolutions that will last and give your home the long-needed facelift it deserves.

“My favorite technique when re-decorating has always been mixing old with new. An interesting mix is interesting because it doesn't look right separately, but together, makes a perfect combination.” says Tiffany Brooks, HGTV Personality and Host of 2014 Smart Home.

The trick to mixing old and new design is really a basic study in contrasts. Mixing old and new is all about combining super sleek and modern with vintage worn and tattered. Find and combine items that are straight off the manufacturing line with those that have held a story for so many years.

See some steps to help illustrate the mix below.
