How To Modernize 18th Century Savannah Home?

Q: I relocated to Savannah, Georgia and am lucky to be renting a beautiful little house on the historic register but it needs some work. It's an 18th Century home painted robin's egg blue with two bedrooms, a balcony and a patio in an enclosed garden. I love the architecture and the period details but I have no idea what to do with them. I love traditional Savannah style but it might be a little too staid for me. How do I preserve the integrity of the house while not decorating like my Great Aunt?
