Before you embark on the exciting journey of mixing styles, it's crucial to ensure that all stakeholders involved in the transformation are on board with the design concept. As you commence, appoint a designated leader to oversee the process, and ensure that everyone offers their feedback. Remember, even
the smallest details such as an accent chair can make or break the success of the transformation. So, approach this as a bonding moment, and celebrate the milestone of designing a space that will become a central part of your daily life.
To achieve a harmonious look, it's essential to keep in mind the 60, 30, 10 rule when selecting styles. The primary concept, the secondary style, and the color scheme with accessories should all be balanced in proportion. Following this rule will create a cohesive and aesthetically pleasing space that feels balanced and unified.
Avoid the pitfall of dividing the room with conflicting styles that clash and make the space appear chaotic and dysfunctional. Instead, strive for a cohesive look that reflects your personal taste and style preferences.
Consider centering your furniture choices around non-negotiable pieces. For instance, if you have a beloved art deco sofa that you want to incorporate into a modern aesthetic, try placing it in a bright, well-lit space and pairing it with clean-lined open furniture that complements its style. This clever approach can elevate an outdated piece, transforming it into a captivating focal point that adds personality and depth to the room.
By following these tips, you can mix styles with confidence and achieve a space that is both stylish and functional. Take the time to enjoy the process, and don't be afraid to experiment with different styles until you find the perfect balance that reflects your unique personality and taste.
