Questions + problems for house decor experts

First, please forgive my bad writing and grammar. I am only recently to learn English language in the last year and am not good for writing yet. I hope that I can explain this enough to you to understand to help me. Second, please forgive that this is so long in writing. I want to explain as many parts to this to make you understand.  I have been reading here since 2011.12 and I could see that many people are good with giving decor advice so I am thinking and wishing for your advice for myself. I have since the death of my grandmother in August inheriting her house. It is a very old house, building in 1932 and very old, but in unusual i think style. There is tall ceilings, many hanging lamp fixtures (candeleres?), fireplaces and decorated woodworkings on ceilings, in all the rooms there is marble floors in a pattern that is so very beautifull. The floors marble is cut so that it looks like wooden herrinbone floor. There is iron worked stair railings and art iron work glass doors too. I do not know the word for it but there are windows with many coloured glasses in them. They look like church windows but have flowers instead of church scenes. There are many beautifull things that are still here from when it is built in 1932. The kitcen and bathrooms have been remade to modern in the recent past time of three years as well as the water pipes and the electrical wires.. My grandmother said it was a very modern and in stylish home when it was built. It was built by the same architects group that made The Adler Planitarium at Chicago illinois. There is a word for the styl of building but I no longer remember. This is my problems. I think that I own all enough furnisture to fill up the rooms to the house (and this is my problem) except that all my furnishings and belongings is very modern furnishings and I do not know if modern furnishing can look good in an old house. Is it possible to have two different styles, one in the home and one in the furnishings? I have too, many modern paintings that I love very much. They maybe are not so beautifull to other persons but to myself they become so much beautifull because they were painted by my brother who is dead last year in a accident. I do not want to put these in a cabinette where no one can see them. My father second wive, who is a wicked personality and does not like me (I think at the first because I am homosexual and mostly now because she wanted but would not get anything in the inheriting because my grandmother was my mothers mother, and not so much liked our father for walking away to marry his mistress) She has told me the house would be very ugly bad with my belongings in it. So because she haves a wicked personality and she does not like me and wants what I was given to by my grandmother so I think she would not be telling me correct advice. I can not be able to move to the house for some time because of the legality of the inheriting and I aslo will not have my inheriting money for some months. So I can to try to start to sell my furnishing to buy furnishings that would be better fitting and looking into the house if you think. One finality thing. If it would not be good looking to have only my modern furniture in the home, could I have combinations of modern and a older style furnishings amd modern painting? Is there a name for the style of olden furnishings I should buy? I hope that I have not smashed up the English so bad that you don't understand my writting words. Thank you and I will be very grateful for any guidance that you can give me.
