Creating a Cohesive Look

Mixing and matching different design styles can be a great way to add interest and personality to a space, but it's important to do it in a way that creates a cohesive look. Here are a few tips to help you mix and match different design styles:

When mixing and matching different design styles, it's important to choose one style as the dominant style in the room. This will help create a cohesive look and prevent the space from feeling too cluttered or disjointed.


2. Use accents to add personality:

Accents are a great way to add personality and interest to a space without overwhelming it. Choose accents that reflect your personal style and incorporate them into your dominant design style.


3. Mix and match textures and patterns:

A cohesive color palette is key when mixing and matching different design styles. Choose a few colors that work well together and use them throughout the space to create a cohesive look.


5. Keep the scale of pieces consistent:

The scale of pieces is important when mixing and matching different design styles. Choose pieces that are similar in scale to create a cohesive look, rather than using very small pieces with very large pieces.


6. Use artwork to tie the look together:
