Celebrate the Mix!

Sunday, January 27, 2013

So can we agree that the best rooms have a carefully edited mix of furnishings from different periods and styles?  I know I've said it before but it bears repeating.  If you buy matching sets of furniture you end up with rooms that look like a catalog or a furniture showroom.  Not good.  We want rooms that celebrate our individuality!  Rooms that reveal who we are and what we love! 

This dining room has an amazing mix of pieces that come together as a beautiful whole.  Would you combine so many different styles of antiques with the casual modern chairs (they look to be for use outdoors)  and white walls?

Another unexpected mix - this time it's an antique dining table with curvy cabriole legs surrounded by white mid-century wire chairs.

The chrome and glass desk gives this office a modern direction, but the rustic chair and antique rug provide some humble contrast. 

This room has lots of mid-century pieces, but there's a nice mix of textures. 

So now - go forth and mix it up!  Life is too short to live in a Pottery Barn catalog.
