Mixing styles and periods tends to offer unique perspectives for decorating. A deconstructed French 1880s armchair sits next to a 19th century terrazzo side table. An early 20th century architectural model rests on top of the table.

Collecting art is a passion, whether your a novice or an expert, anyone can do it.  Some of the most satisfying discoveries from our buying trips have been unique artworks; from charcoal drawings to oil seascapes. Mixing different styles can help create a unique look for a room, one that is all its own.

Once you've collected an eclectic mix of art, the next step is displaying your collection. That's where the challenge, and fun begins!

Known as one of the biggest award shows for the film industry, the Academy Awards highlights the achievements of actors, producers, writers and composers. However one category that seems to be looked over is "set design". This year The Danish Girl has been nominated for the category, featuring stunning backdrops from 1920's Copenhagen, Paris, and Germany. Each location in the film, is designed with beautiful antique furniture and stunningly accurate interiors.

The Copenhagen set was done wonderfully, the addition of antique easels and chairs really solidifies the historical accuracy of the film. Architectural Digest sits down with the production designer Eve Stewart to discuss what went on behind the scenes to pull off this incredible period film.
