Sometimes, decorating is all about taking chances. Mixing styles in a single room can feel daunting, but I am a firm believer in the fact that if it feels right… it probably is.
Deflectors will try to tell you that “less is more” and that you must match your furniture’s style with the rest of the room and let one item be the star of the room (I speak first hand on the deflectors front). Well, you know what, I disagree.
Layers of different fabrics, motifs, and textures are what make a room come to life. Just like our own lives, our homes are made of the experiences we have had, the trips we have taken, the people we have encountered. All these, in turn, affect the way we live & who we are and the environments in which we live.
Let’s embrace our eclecticism in a happy and lovely chaos, like this home which feels lived in and homey… at least to me.
