Mixing Styles in Interior Design

Interior design and decorating isn’t just about the way you design and decorate your home, it’s also about how you feel and live.

The mood and the style you want to express are two factors that are important to consider when you are designing a room. The better you identify and recognize the mood and the theme of your space, the easier it will be for you to select furniture and accessories which will highlight your chosen theme.

Remember that well designed spaces include a mixture of styles that have an overall combination that is inviting and attractive. For example, a sleek leather sofa in a room with antique tables or with more traditional pieces.

When you are mixing styles try to mix furniture styles that bring out related moods. Have at least two items of the same style in the room to create a link between the furniture before you mix the different styles. Make sure to add accessories in both styles in approximately the same proportion. Use a minimum quantity of colors when designing a room in different styles.

Experimenting with different furniture styles before trying to mix them will give you a better chance of creating and designing a balanced and harmonious style combination for your space. For example: It’s hard to mix a country style wooden chair with a glossy black metal chair. But it’s easy to mix a country style wooden chair with a French style chair.

Your home is where you live, it has to reflect your style and personality, and also has to be comfortable, harmonized, balanced, and fit your lifestyle.
