We’ve all heard the phrase “opposites attract,” but did you know that you can also apply that philosophy to your home’s interior décor? Mixing different furniture styles, patterns, and colors is now considered trendy and chic. It can be hard to master, though, so we’ve put together a few helpful tips.
- Take advantage of pieces that you already own and love. For example, if you have a dark wood coffee table, you could lighten up the room and make it a little more modern by adding throw rugs, a modern mirror, or decorative pillows. You could also add a pop of color with curtains, or by painting an accent wall.
- If you have a matching wooden dining table and chairs set that has a bit of a rustic feel to it, you could liven it up and add more character to your space by covering the chairs with a fun and interesting fabric. Add in a modern light fixture and clean, white walls, and you’ve just created the perfect blend of traditional and modern décor.
- Focus on a common material, such as silver accents, and use that to tie the room together. Collect accessories, picture frames, metal wall art, and other furniture that has silver or chrome accents, and use them to contrast against your rustic wood table.
Mixing different décor styles can help to make the space feel unique and more like your own. By doing this, you may even find that you like pieces of your furniture more than you had originally thought! Which styles of décor are your favorites, and which ones do you mix throughout your home?
