Modern VS Old Glamour

There is these two completely gorgeous homes in Photographer Jason Ierace's portfolio, both very different styles, which one do you prefer? Modern?

Or grand glamour?

Which is your favorite? I love the grand home but it's more like a luxury hotel to spend a weekend in rather than an everyday home, even though it is completely stunning!

my own flat is modern, but I love both! :)
have a lovely day, xoxo

Mudita said...

Personally I prefer Modern. Old glamour looks pretty but feel oppressing with all the details to me. I feel claustrophobic in such room ^^;;

Btw, new reader here! I just found your website through....er link-hopping.

I'm loving your blog and all of the pretties image. :)

Love the section on Luphia style too. It's a great style inspiration for me, since we're about the same height.

I like Modern, but that is old Modern, I have the same Arne Møller chairs in the 2nd pic, and they're mid-century, love that era's furniture! :)

PinkBow said...

oh my, i can hardly choose! but i'm going to have to go for the bottom, very french looking, which i love!
thanks also for your lovely comment & i would love to exchange links!

I saw all these pictures in a magazine in Australia, but they cut the corners of most pictures so it was only a narrow view. I'm really disappointed with the magazine now that I've seen your full sized pics!!

Little Miss Tiara said...

oh! Both are so lovely and neat! Will be hard for me to keep it that tidy! ha... but I think I'll go with the classic style, hohoho... but then I can get bored really easily, hmm...

Luluce said...

I love the modern home. The other one is nice, too, but a bit too glamorous for a normal home, I think.
By the way: I love your blog, it's very inspiring.

Normally I'm an old glamour kind of girl, but in this instance I think the modern home takes the cake - such stunning photography and beautiful styling x

natalie said...

They both look gorgeous, but I prefer the modern one.

✿Ji✿ said...

A mix of both or two houses with one modern and another glamour!♥

Rachel said...

the old glamour is awesome, but i would prefer to live in the modern style home:)

Federica said...

Oh wow! I'm loving the first home! But I don't know...even the second one is gorgeous...It's a difficult choise! Can I have both?!

Have a wonderful day!

TheBeautyFile said...

Definitely modern...but I don't even consider it to be modern because it has such a 70s glam feel to it...I love her handbags hanging on the wall & all the fresh flowers!

Dionne said...

Oooh lala. I can't choose. I like the perfect blend of the old and the new.

Kellie ~ Ada and Darcy said...

Definitely old glamour. I would love those black, pink and white cushions too!!

mint said...

I'm totally in for modern simply because it seems easier to clean xD being lazy me. I love old glamour too, it's almost like a dream house with the beautiful style of armchairs and bed post. just that modern seems more practical, but i would spend say a holiday in a old glamour house anytime!

Rebecca said...

I choose grand glamor!! :) I love that blue bedroom, though I agree that the glamor could be toned down a little.

janettaylor said...

I love Modern....

X♥X♥

{eleise} said...

I love the bottom! Although it's so fancy...how do you live in a place like that!? =)

S.Elisabeth said...

I'm usually one for old, grand glamour, but there's something so simple and comfortable about the modern glamour one!

Amy said...

I definitely love the grandeur of old school glamour, but Modern is also great. If only they could somehow make the two co-exist...:)

Elisa said...

I'm for clean lines so the modern one is for me! Thanks for sharing.

Sal said...

Modern. DEFINITELY modern!

Fabulously french said...

A mixture of modern and glamour for me!

Love the photos :-)

Rachel said...

Both very pretty, but definintely modern!!

sarah said...

I love them both although I can't picture my family in the old-school glamorous home. Somehow my husbands dirty sneakers and the kids toys just look like they'd fit better in a more modern environment.

Ela said...

I love the clean and crisp feel of Modern but Glamour always makes me
look twice. My house is furnished in modern... easier to maintain :)

New to blogging so I just came across your blog, it's lovely!

Janelle said...

It's hard to decide! I'd love my future home to be a combo of both modern & old glamour. Tastefully of course! These pics are gorgeous.

lespenelopés MD said...

I prefer modern but in fact both is adorable !!!

clouds of tulle said...

BOTH! but i tend to steer towards modern. And my bf like the futuristic feel. i'm not so keen on that. haha

Olya said...

definitely the modern... This post game me a few ideas for my own apartment (which has many similar elements). cute post!

Marie said...

Luv the grand glamour...it's so my style, although it doesn't hurt to mix a bit of modern with glamour.

Diana said...

i'm a mixture of both. i love old glamour but i love modern minimalism!

Couture Carrie said...

Love the modern! Gorgeous photos!

amy b.s. said...

i agree that the grand looks like something i'd like to visit, but not my every day style. both homes are amazing though. i think i'm going to have to add some of the modern when i decorate my new home!

Suzannah said...

i definatley prefer the grand glamour <3

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

oh definitely I prefer the first one. I do love old glamour touches here and there, but not too overloaded. gorgeous pics! xo

RhiannonM said...

I go for the Modern between these two, which wouldn't usually be the case as I enjoy the Luxe things in life!

Carlotta said...

love the first house!!

K8 said...

That would be such a hard decision. I do really like the modern house but the design of the grand one is amazing!

Vicki Dvorak said...

Beautiful images! Thanks for sharing them with us, Tina. :)

shopgirl28 said...

The modern is my favorite. It suits my personality better. I think I would feel out of place in the Glamour house.

conversationpieces said...

Modern all the way! I'm not really a glam girl it has to be said!! ;)

cleung341 said...

For me I love the contrast btw the modern and old glamour!

Kristin said...

They're both gorgeous but the first style is more my speed. LOVELY feature!

smmmitten said...

both!! and in an ideal world, one could own both homes and more...

Erika said...

A part of me loves Grand Glamour; then again, the Modern style is quite lovely as well. Maybe I could use bits of both? :)

nookie said...

Actually I love them both:))

Dila said...

Lovely blog really unique and pretty

clarewbrown said...

OOOOH I think I would like a blend of the two "modern glamour"

Helen said...

I definitely prefer modern, but glamour would be nice for one nice evening!

Gaia said...

Can I have a bit of both and mixed ant matched?
If I had to choose I'll pick the first one. Much more easy to live in and look more confortable!

Anna said...

i like the grand glamour more but as for my home, i prefer modern. i just don't like the "wood" feel to it.

Joby said...

I adore the old glamour so Audrey Hepburn and also I feel its come back in to being modern too.

Thanks Luphia XX

Cassiopeia said...

Beautiful! I love the oranges :-D

Xxxc

B said...

Margaux. said...

I love both, but I prefer modern.
I love that totally organized look that still manages to look lived in. Almost cluttered, but not.

jules said...

Oh i love them both!!

The Clothes Horse said...

I'm rather too distracted by the cool print on the first lady's dress to notice the interior decoration...

Winnie said...

I love both but I would love to sleep in that gorgeous bed from the grand style!

Keyreo said...

Grand Glamour please! And that nice ysl handbag and the fendi in the fifth pic:)

Jennifer Ramos said...

Hmmmi like BOTH! :)
The top one is just more colorful & happy though.

~XO*

kalai said...

.. maybe have a giant walk in closet/dressing room old glamour style.. haha ^o^perfect~

Najeema said...

It's no contest for me- I love modern! In the first picture, is that the ikea malm bed and headboard? I've never seen it in white. It's lovely!

Amanda said...

to live in: modern
to look at: glamour

Mademoisselle Chic said...

I love those small roses :)

AnnaCleo said...

I'd love to live in modern in the future ........

but wish i had grown up in old glamour and be able to visit it every now and then

^_______^

Eda said...

I love them both!

Elizabeth Marie said...

I love the modern...but I totally get what you mean about the Glamour feeling like a grand hotel! i dont know if I could fully relax there! XO

coco said...

I love the wooden & sign in the very first picture.

yiqin; said...

Ah nice! I like the beds.

Jamilla Camel said...

Gorgeous! My house is a combo of old, new and ethnic.

BTW, my office is in Bracknell, but I rarely go there...I work from my home office when not travelling.

Bath, on the other hand...I LOVE IT!

P.S. Found you thru Fuzkittie.

Rachel Follett said...

I love the modern one but I think I like the glam one more just because it is so pretty!

mice said...

adorable house! :)

muchlove said...

gorgeous! I'm leaning towards the grand glamour too. I love all the classical details of the room.

Blair said...

I think I prefer modern glam but you definitley made it hard with all these lovely images:)

cassandra @ coco+kelley said...

LOVE the modern!!! old glamour in touches is beautiful, but i don't think i can live in a room with so much of one style!

Rain said...

I like both of them!

x

denise said...

I prefer modern, even though the grand glamour is lovely as well.
I just don't think I could walk around in a grand glamour house with a simple tshirt and shorts all day, like I usually do in my own house...

Courtney said...

While they are both beautiful, my vote is for the modern one. I would move in tomorrow!

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

oh dear, i think i mix both together but mine probably looks a lot more like the first, although i love the second too. great post!

xo

The Lil Bee said...

They are both beautiful, but the modern home is way more my style and seems a bit more livable for my lifestyle. Still, I do love that petal pink sofa at bottom!

BuzzChild said...

I would love to combine the both, I think a mixture of the two would be just right!

I love seeing all the pretty images on your blog, it's very inspirational.

alissa said...

i want the modern...but i get to steal a few pieces from the old style and mix them in :)

Joann said...

Usually, I'd go for the grand glamour. This time, modern appeals to me more. Both are as great though!

ana b. said...

That pair of retro chairs with the black upholstery and matching cushions. Love love love. I should reupholster the vintage chairs I have.
