When working with clients one of the most important elements of the process is to determine what they like! Seems straight forward enough, however most people are drawn to different styles and so we must guide them through the process of mixing those styles in a way that creates a beautiful, cohesive result. Here are some tips to help you achieve the perfect look when mixing design styles.
NO. 1 FIND A COMMON THREAD
Find an element to carry out through the entire space, such as a particular color or texture to ensure the flow of the design.
NO. 2 BE SURE TO BLEND
You may be tempted to keep different styles designated to specific spaces in your home- like having a modern kitchen, but a contemporary living room, however you will quickly find that your home seems out of balance. When combining more than one design style, blending them together throughout the home will give it a much better feel.
NO. 3 LAYER
When layering consider starting with some main pieces (artwork, fabric, accessories) in one style and then add in pieces from other styles that compliment those.
