What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of purchasing mismatched décor from a consignment shop? Do you think old and shabby? How about thrown together and unplanned? If these or similar thoughts pop into your head, then you’re shopping for unique items all wrong. The truth is, a room full of contrasting furniture doesn’t have to appear discordant. Here are a few of our favorite tips to help you make your mismatched home décor look both stylish and inviting.
Choose a Theme
According to lifestyle media company, Brit + Co, one simple way to bring your pieces together is to choose an overall theme. Take wood, for instance. A chestnut wood table, which would likely be medium brown in appearance, matched with a set of light brown oak wood chairs would serve as a lovely focal point to any space. The wooden contrast not only brings the look together, but it also adds depth to the design.
Another way to create an attractive space is to color coordinate. You could choose a color scheme such as red, white, and black; green, yellow, and brown; or purple, silver, and white. The list really could go on and on. Find furniture pieces that fit into your color scheme, regardless of style, and watch how your room comes to life. You could even choose one predominant color, such as white. In fact, an all-white space can give your room a clean and comforting feel.
Use a Simple Palette
Lastly, try to keep your colors as simple as possible. As previously mentioned, you can definitely have fun with color schemes. However, you don’t want to add too many colors, which could cause your space to appear crowded and unattractive. Choosing a palette that features no more than three or four predominant colors is a safe bet.
