One of the questions that comes up time and time again is whether or not its okay to mix. Is it okay to mix gold and silver? Dark and light wood? Modern and traditional? And the answer, for the most part is YES! The mixing of different mediums is usually what brings a space to life and brings an unexpected excitement to a room which could otherwise feel a little too matchy-matchy.
While I do encourage mixing, you dont want to go overboard on the different types of mixtures you place in one space. If you have a pretty traditional room, its okay to mix in some modern accessories, lighting, and artwork to freshen things, BUT then you should take caution in your color palette. If you are going to mix several different finishes on furniture in a room… try to keep all the lines the same, and choose furniture that is the same style. Remember, the goal is to have a sense of eclectic beauty.
