That is the typical european style. Taking advantage of historical references, the environment is hardly touched. The moldings, the high ceiling, the windows and all other references to the past are preciously respected and then you throw in a few modern pieces. The client connects easily to the space through those references. The styles are juxtaposed in the same room and, as with any kind of mixing, it is simply a question a proportion, maintaining the proper scale and keeping colors and materials sympathic.
