Welcome back Amigos!
Throughout the years I’ve read advice from designers who’ve said, if you want a smokin’ house, PICK A STYLE and stick to it!
Say what!?! Just one?!?! Panic. ‘Cummon, it’s easier to pick a mate than one measly style!!
It’s just plain unnatural to cuddle up with one style all the rest of your days (well, until you redecorate, at least.) Mixing it up is part of our DNA and hey, it keeps things interesting… there always seems to be a new trend that comes along and seduces you a little…and you can’t help yourself to a few Japanese vases, only to come eye-to-eye with an early American that’s got gorgeous bones, but your mother is pushing Greek Revival, when along comes Louis XV to put you in a tailspin. Yes. You always go back to old faithful, but (can we all agree?), it can be pretty fun to play the design field. And all that enjoyment, leads to the creation of an incredibly pleasurable space.
Case in point…
If you can’t have fun in your home, then where can you?!? Never settle for just one style… at least when it comes to decorating with your eye candy, I can testify that English, French, and that sophisticated Mid-Century, can all get along very well.
