In the last few years my design style has changed a bit. I went from country to rustic to now more of a transitional style. However, even though I classify myself as transitional, I still like to mix in other styles into my décor. I think it makes it feel more comfortable and inviting that way.
Recently, I was asked by Chairish to join in on their Mix n Chic Style Challenge. This challenge was to design a space of my choice that incorporated the Shabby Chic style. Since I am still trying to decide what to do with my master bedroom, I decided to create a look for a master suite.
When I start designing a space, Sometimes I start with one main piece of furniture and work from that and sometimes I pick a color palette first. This time I started with a color palette.
In my mind a master suite needs to be calming and comfortable. This rug gave me my color inspiration. I love how it has many of the neutral colors but then it has that pop of Blue to keep it from being to blah and boring. I used that blue as an accent color in my design.
When designing a space, I think the best way to go about it is to chose things you love and not necessarily stick to a specific style. Having an eclectic, mix and match room filled with things that you love, in my opinion, is much better than a matchy match room that feels more like an exhibit that you don't want to be in. As you can see in my inspiration board, there are a few different styles represented.
What do you think? Do you like to mix styles when you decorate or do you prefer a room that is all one style?
