THE SECRET TO BLENDING STYLES IS TO CHOOSE PIECES WISELY, EMPHASIZE A FEW THEMES THAT INCORPORATE DIFFERENT LOOKS, AND ELEVATE THE ORDINARY TO STAR STATUS.
Pare Down Keep the look easy on the eye. Rhonda and Justin’s home isn’t minimalistic by any means, but they try to avoid any extra “fluff,” being true to a farmhouse life.
Make Wise Investments Hunt for interesting pieces that can double as storage. Don’t be afraid if they need a little work, but don’t make old, weathered or rusty items look too perfect!
Harness the Light Neutral colors emphasize natural or artificial lighting. This makes a room feel twice as big. Rhonda adds seasonal pops of color with fresh- cut flowers, frames and other small decorative items, and pillows.
Don’t Discriminate Mix old with new! “I have bought ‘repro’ items when it makes sense,” Rhonda says. Lighting is one category that is safer new.
