6 ways to Master the Art of Mixing and Matching for Your Home Decor

We often have fun to mix  high and low, old and new and of course different aesthetics. Mixing of all kinds will add interest and character into the space.  In order to keep the cohesive vibe overall, we will have to  use some common elements to thread through the different layers.  And  here is the case study for the corner space for the project we recently designed. We would like to create a chic, fresh, elegant, polished decor  style while still keeping it inviting and cozy.  Here is how we did it—today, we are going to share 6 tips on how we artfully mix high and low, modern and classical, old and new to achieve this goal.

  1. Rule #1, always keep an overall color palette  neutral if you are going to take a mix& match approach.

5 Ways to Create a High Style Room with a Relaxing Vibe

We all want the freshest, newest and coolest look for our home in the new year, don’t we?  If refreshing your home in high style is  one of your goals in 2020,   please read on this blog since we are going to share some industry insights in the following 5 ways to help you reach your goal in 2020 by showcasing our newly designed dining room project.

  1. First and foremost, always keep true to your own style and choose things that you love and  are attracted to. You may notice that there are a strong wave going on years for mid-century style furnishings and you can find mid-century  furniture and decor in any big box retailers now . If mid-century is your style, that is all good.   But just bear in mind that not all of mid-century furniture is created equal.  If you are a classical lover, I have a good news for you that classic design with new twists is coming back big.  Millenniums are now looking for one of   kinds  of vintage pieces, antique  and art to curate their own personal style. They definitely don’t want their home just look like their neighbors.

Full-body drapery panels, upholstered furniture always elevate a room elegantly in a big way.   Well-made and crafted pieces are always worthy of an investment in a long term. In this dining room design, we pair 4 blush linen upholstered slipper-covered chairs with 2 of Champaign gilded modernized Louis XVI chairs to create a very sophisticated yet relaxing  dining  atmosphere.

2. Stay muted natural color palette with pops of color in a subtle and cohesive way is a great approach to create a timeless interior.

We love how  pink, purple, blue play off  with neutral background colors –blush, blue and cream in this dining room. Plus, blue on Waterford tumblers is relevant to the theme color  of 2020— Pantone color of the Year–Classic Blue. You always can easily replace these items as the season is  changing to keep your home fresh year around.

At this time of the year, we would like to have some touch of  Chinoiserie  not only because they sing with the rest of the room decor also because Chinese New Year is coming and it is the time to celebrate the year of rat with our handpicked oriental decor.

3. Layering  the room with different elements, patterns and textiles and etc… is another way to create timeless look  since layering always bring in  interests, depth, dimensions and personalities to the space.

What an intricate pattern on the large blue-and-white porcelain vase.

4. Have something sparkling to create a high-design and high-polished  style for the room that is important to you and your family.

Crystal chandeliers and crystal  decor  objects are always our go-to items to create high-style interiors.  In this case, a modern crystal chandelier echos crystal vases on the dining table.  We love to use a group of vases with different sizes to create a more fun and relaxing atmosphere.

An amethyst Vase is modern and fashion-forward.

5.  Yes, fresh flowers please. They help add pops of color and make any room alive in a second. We usually prefer to  loose style  flower arrangements since they often  invoke  a relaxing vibe.

A group of loose flower arrangements in crystal and ceramic vases are chic, cheerful and elegant.  They, for sure, enhance your appetite.
