Mix­ing is im­per­a­tive if you want a space that stands out.

Pair lav­ish items such as mir­rors or chan­de­liers with a sim­plis­tic bare floor. To cre­ate a rus­tic feel with­out los­ing a mod­ern edge, use slightly over-scaled wow pieces. Rein­vent the tra­di­tional toile pat­tern wall­pa­per by us­ing vivid col­ors and group­ings of larger hang­ing pieces on the wall.

Uti­lize ac­ces­sories to make a smaller space ap­pear larger and cre­ate a room that feels alive and play­ful.

Draw your at­ten­tion to dif­fer­ent parts of a room with unique ar­range­ments of wall hang­ings like mir­rors or paint­ings. For­get about bound­aries by cre­at­ing an eclec­tic col­lec­tion of seem­ingly un­re­lated items, such as de­signer Amanda Seitz’s drift­wood cof­fee ta­ble, white ce­ramic deer head and oc­to­pus trip­tych. Pair­ing strong, mas­cu­line de­sign pieces with light art­work trans­forms a room into a space that feels both grounded and airy.
