Inspiring Interiors: A Melange of Old and New

My dream Paris apartment might just be this - the decorative elements of old grandeur - parquet floors and gilded crown molding mingling with modern and approachable furniture.  Typically I like to steer clear of pieces with rounded lines, however, I think that here, it really balances out the room.  What do you prefer old grandeur or fresh and modern?
