Decorating Ideas for Historic Meets Modern Apartment?

Good Questions

Q: I just got a great apartment in downtown Denver with a mix of old charm (I really love the sturdy central pillars) and very modern (or 80's?) lofting. I want to use this interesting mix to decorate in a way that is hip and creative, but peaceful and calming.

I really love the look of sheer long drapes on the sides of the large windows, but after that, I am stuck. P.S. The fake plants will be the first things to go!
