Matching furniture sets are no longer in style. Instead, many people are opting for an eclectic, “collected-over-time” look that blends traditional antiques and modern pieces. As MSN Glo explains:
“For 2012, the straight-from-a-catalogue look is out. Edit your own treasured belongings for a storied look.”
Choosing an eclectic style doesn’t have to make you indecisive about which pieces to incorporate into your home. Layer items you love and bring in vintage and modern pieces that work well together.
If you feel like you still need a little direction, House Beautiful has a great slideshow featuring “expert tricks for mixing antique, modern and traditional design,” as the magazine describes. Visit housebeautiful.com to see their suggestions.
