When you begin your journey of design and mix-and-matching furniture, the first thing you should always consider is if you like what you are creating and if your space represents you. The area in which you are designing should resemble your own personal taste in >

By doing so, the end product of your journey will be one you love. It will inspire you to make your styling journey an ongoing one and to stay active creatively.

2.nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; Mix and Match Your color like You Mix and Match Your Furniture

As chic as an all-white bedroom seems, with pure white goose feather filled pillows and seashell pinch pleated curtains, why not add some bright and exciting colours like blue and pink to give the room character.

In a room that is filled with light shades like white and grey, try popping in a lounge chair with a velvet pink or purple color to give it personality. Or, if you have an office that is crying out dullness with its infinite amount of dark tan wood, fill up a bookcase with accessories of earth-like colours such as dark green to build charm.

Keep in mind that too much color will cause the space to look cluttered, so limit your color palette. For example, in a bedroom try coordinating the nightstand, dresser and bed with the lighting, window treatment and artwork. Then, allow freedom of color throughout the rest of the bedroom.

Leftover, you have a wooden dresser, a silver-lined round mirror and a geometric glass candle holder. Three completely different textured types of furniture, how could you possibly fit these into your home to make use of them? You may think were crazy, but, put them all together.

When furniture and accessories placed beside each other all have the same texture, your eyes tend to simply glaze over. But when you place a textured object in the space, the elements pop

By following these tips, your mix and matching journey should not only be fun and lead to an end product that embodies who you are, but itll give you confidence to invite people to your home and to make use of the new space you have created.
