Choosing a style for decorating your home can be tricky. There are so many style options and endless color palettes to choose from that settling on an idea can take time. You might like bits and pieces from different looks, but aren’t sure how to go about mixing them together.
The good news is that there are ways to mesh different decor styles together. You don’t necessarily have to settle for just one. If you make the right choice in pieces and colors you can blend them seamlessly together to create your own unique look. Below are some examples of indoor furniture and decor choices you can make to help different styles blend together perfectly.
Pick a Focal Point
A good place to start when mixing design styles is by choosing a focal point that you love. This will become sort of a “center piece” for the room that you build everything else around. Whether it’s a piece of luxury furniture that you want to show off or a gorgeous area rug, you can pick other items to compliment it and make it really stand out. You can use the colors and patterns of this focal point to choose items from other styles that will still match.
Match Your Wood Types
Matching wood shades and grains can help to pull looks together no matter how different they are. Vintage furniture can still look good next to modern pieces and look totally intentional if you match the wood. It gives everything a common factor that makes it appear as though they belong together even if they don’t.
Stick to a Color Palette
Having a solid and appealing color palette is another way to pull together a room. You can match all of your indoor furniture’s fabric for a base color and then use decorations, area rugs, and curtains to add more colors that compliment your base. This can make everything blend together even when the styles aren’t the same.
You don’t have to be limited when it comes to decorating your home. You can have fun with it and mix and match as you please. So long as you find a way to make everything blend together then you can have a striking home without putting yourself in a box.
