HOW TO PERFECTLY MATCH MISMATCHED FURNITURE
I get a ton of questions asking how I put together room designs. My philosophy is to make each room design cohesive yet unique to give each client a dream space that's special and specific to their taste and style. As a short answer for how I do it- I love matching mismatched furniture and adding some killer decor!! In my opinion, homes look much more curated and collected when each piece is unique. The amazing thing about vintage furniture is that they are often one-of-a-kind! However, that means you have to get creative to round out the rest of your space with other types of furniture that create a stunning overall look.
Part of getting good at styling mismatched furniture is knowing the direction you want to go in! Look at places like Pintrest or Instagram for some inspiration photos to help put your mind in the right place to create the perfect space for you.
If you're looking for some base knowledge of how to get started, I've got you covered! Here are some tips and tricks for perfectly matching mismatched furniture:
1. Find A Common Denominator

The first step to creating the perfect space with mismatched furniture is to find some common ground throughout your pieces. In my experience, having a strategy is always the best way to go. I always look for a common color palette, style, era, etc. This will give you a starting point and help you steer clear of choosing pieces at random. Once you have your common denominator, it will be so much easier to hit the ground running in the direction you want to go in.
2. Choose Complimentary Colors
3. Reinvent Sentimental Pieces

The amazing thing about vintage pieces is that they have so much history behind them. If you have sentimental pieces that have been passed down in your family, it's so special when you're able to use it throughout your home. However, it doesn't necessarily mean its original condition will work in your space. That's why we do what we do! Instead of buying something new ... add some paint, change out the hardware, reupholster - the list is endless! Sometimes you don't have to reinvent the wheel to make your home cohesive and curated, but you may have to let us help you reinvent a piece of furniture or two!
