How to Mix Different Decor Styles

There is no one-size-fits-all anymore when it comes to the way you decorate and accessorize your home. Whether you’re dreaming of high-end style, relaxing in a southern atmosphere, hope to get cozy in a rustic style you’d find in the mountains, or create a combination of these styles, it’s easy to accomplish with the right know-how.

Use these tips to keep from going overboard while achieving a style that’s right for you and your family, no matter where you live.

Use Light Tones
Using light tones like white, cream, and light gray on your walls will give you a backdrop to display just about any type of decor. It will give you the ability to introduce patterns and pops of color without giving the space an overwhelming feeling.

Mix Rustic and Modern
Utilize a room separator to introduce a rustic element like a wooden beam and columns.

Mix Timeless and Unique
There are certain elements that don’t seem to ever go out of style, like metallic fixtures on the walls, wood floors, and chrome finishes. Add your own style to these timeless elements by introducing bold colors or patterns in an area rug, kitchen back splash, or new sofa.

I hope you’ve found these tips helpful in preparing to update your space. What room in your home is next on your list to make changes to?

Budget Friendly Decorating Tips for High-End Style

Whether you’re making some updates to re-energize the look and feel of the spaces in your home, or you’re preparing to put your house up for sale, there are ways of achieving a high-end style while keeping your budget intact.

Decorating and having rooms that you can enjoy and be proud of should be fun, not stressful.  With these budget friendly decorating tips for high-end style, you’ll be well on your way to giving each room that ‘wow’ factor.

Take Painting to the Next Level

While a new coat of paint will refresh the look of any space, go a step further and get creative.  Decorative painting, like vertical stripes in different hues of the same color family or a horizontal two-tone pattern can completely update the look.  Give the look of dimension to your walls with the use of textured paint rollers, or try your hand with a fabric roller.

In most cases, your local paint store will have examples and will even give you a quick lesson on achieving the look you’re going for.

Give Your Furniture a Makeover

Don’t think you have to replace your furniture to change and update your space.  Slip covers can be the answer!  Start by browsing through design magazines or visiting a high-end furniture store for inspiration.  Once you have a few ideas, head to your local department store and look at what they have to offer.  This is a super budget-friendly way of making over a room!

Attention to Accessories

Again, a great place to start when updating the accessories in your space is to browse a few design magazines, look online, or visit a furniture store to see how their stagers have set up a mock living room or bedroom.

You don’t have to change out every accessory you have in a room, just a few perfectly placed accents will do the trick!  Choose items that stand out from the primary color scheme of the space, like vases, a collection of frames, or even an accent chair.
