Combining Different Tastes and Styles….
As we decorate and style our homes over time we seem to collect different items that speak to us of our likes and dislikes of that time. And as our tastes change and we want to redecorate it becomes quite a challenge to make the transition cohesive without having to start from scratch each time. Which let’s face it is not an option in the real world.
Let’s take for example making a previous love of country timber furniture now combine with a more sleek and contemporary look such as white high gloss. And even though these two things sound like total opposites there is always a way to succeed.
If you have a timber dining table that needs an update just by simply changing your chairs and adding a funky white chair you can make it work just by placing a large white high shine vase or platter as the table’s centrepiece. Or consider adding a white high gloss buffet to your existing dining table but to make it link back and compliment the table you add a wood based lamp to the buffet.
Can you see where I am coming from? Just by making these pieces work together directly they automatically make sense. And then as you feel like updating other pieces you can follow the same principle and the results will be amazing.
And in this picture is it the same principle simply in reverse. Sleek white gloss table, timber chairs and a timber bowl to link it. Simple when you know the rules !
I hope you are all having a great week,
