2019 Trend Watch focuses on mixing home decorating styles. And what does that look like you may ask? Mixing home decorating styles is certainly on trend for 2019 and has been for quite some time. When no longer buying “sets” of anything, mixing textiles, wood tones and textures began to emerge. Granted, it’s a bit trickier to mix up decorating styles without it looking out of scale or proportion, but gone are the days of a one-note decorating style.
2019 Trend Watch | Mix Styles
And when it comes to mixing home decorating styles there are a few ways to go about it. Such as mixing in an antique or vintage piece to an otherwise traditional/modern room. The bedroom below has a balanced mix of modern elements such as the area rug, lamp & bed frame & a traditional style Parsons Chair plus Classic Farmhouse Style ticking stripe bedding. But add in the vintage trunk and the room has an immediate sense of history.
Then again, the elements in this room really set the room design apart. Notice each carefully selected element; an unexpected paint color & wall treatment together with Mid-Century Modern chairs, vintage ski sets as art, an industrial cocktail table atop modern gray flooring.
So next time you are looking to spruce up your room find your inspiration with pieces that really resonate with you. I found mine with the vintage trunk, which has been in my husbands family so it’s special to us. But before the trunk was added to the room it lacked personality. This one piece gave the bedroom interest. And because of the size, scale, and color of the trunk, it compliments the space perfectly.
So thanks for stopping in today, we hope you’ve left inspired! ~ Nancy
