Do you and your partner have different ideas of how to style your space? Or maybe you just can’t decide whether you should go glam or more rustic? Mixing and matching styles is a great way to truly personalize a space, but it can be a bit overwhelming when you want to make sure it all reads as one cohesive space, rather than a mish-mash of unmatched pieces. Fear not; mixing and matching styles is one of our expertise — read on for our tips on how to make a space eclectic while staying cohesive!
Analyze your style preferences
What is it about each style that you like in particular? Is it the gold finishes combined with pops of bright colors that you like about glam styled living rooms? Perhaps the clean lines and aesthetic of a minimalist bedroom? Figuring out which pieces you like from each style will be key in understanding how to mix your two (or more!) styles.
Pay attention to color and scale
Color is the easiest way to bring together a sense of cohesiveness to a space with differently styled pieces; an oatmeal colored sofa in a more modern track arm silhouette can easily sit in harmony with a more traditional wingback arm chair in a similar beige or linen color. In the same vein, making sure items feel appropriately scaled to each other will also play a huge part in making sure that your pieces feel like they can live together, rather than compete with each other.
