Mixing Up Spring Home Décor
This season, think about changing up your design style beyond just adding a touch of the season. Instead, look at mixing up design styles for a fresh, on-trend take on spring home décor. If mixing styles seems like new territory, fear not. We present our experts top tips on how to mix styles like a pro.
Old & New
If your room has a modern flair, consider adding rustic pieces to add a touch of warmth and contrast. The clean lines, crisp patterns and bold colors that is often the signature of contemporary furniture look beautiful when paired with weathered wood, brushed steel, or vintage finds. Even small accent pieces like a glass jug for a vase or a wood-topped coffee table can be just enough to make the perfect mix.
Elegance & Romance
Turn your bedroom into a gorgeous retreat when you mix old-school glamour with modern day romance. Start with an upholstered headboard that harkens back to the golden days of Hollywood, then layer on lacy textures in your bed coverings, airy sheers to your windows and wispy soft colors throughout the room. Toss a throw pillow with elegant sequins to finish the look. Your room will take on a day dreamy mood that makes the perfect escape.
Country & City
Contrast between styles is often what makes their pairing the most interesting and perfect. Take classic country charm with metal wall art, an informal sideboard and farmyard-inspired milky white ceramic serveware, like pitchers and bowls. Next, pair it with a crystal vase filled with cut blooms or a dainty glass domed cake stand that you might find at a fancy tea in the city. The final look has its very own unexpected charm.
Retro & Refined
What kitchen area couldn’t benefit from some personality and organization to boot? Take a corner cabinet that is all business, becoming your go-to place for easy storage of everyday items. Then offset it with an all-retro set of wire-cubbied wall shelves that show off vintage finds and your favorite notions. Add a couple of metal kitchen stools in a fresh, modern hue and you’ll soon find this mixed together look turns an ordinary corner into a welcoming conversation starter!
