Mixing up your accessories and style is a MUST to make your space stand out. Here are a few ways to do that:
Use Simple & Luxury Items - Put together something lavish with something simple. A fancy rug on a simple floor or a beautiful chandelier above a simple modern bed.
Pair Rustic & Modern - Another way to mix it up is to use something rustic with something modern. Like a simple, straight line modern couch, with a more rustic coffee table. Using over sized pieces will give it a wow factor too. How about some rustic leather furniture, with a very modern coffee table?
Use Strong & Light Items - Using strong, masculine pieces with light artwork can not only ground space, but make it airy. How about rustic shelves with all white vases, white sculptures or light pastel pieces? Or a white washed cabinet holding big, old books and a dark animal sculpture?
Ignore the Boundaries - You can really mix it up by forgetting all boundaries and create an eclectic collection of items that seem unrelated. Keeping it to a certain area or section of your space will keep the space from feeling too cluttered or messy.
Take time to mix some things up a bit of your own. Like putting on some fancy earrings with jeans and a sweatshirt. It will give your home style--and make it comfortable at the same time.
