One of the most difficult parts of designing a home is figuring out how to properly blend the different styles that are already at work in an area. We acquire so many things throughout our lifetime and it’s hard to figure out how the current furniture will mix with the new wallpaper or how the old window treatments will go with the new lamps.

While you want to avoid obvious clashes in tastes and styles, it’s important to make sure that your home reflects you and is remains a comfortable retreat for you and your family. With that in mind, don’t be afraid to blend a little. Try placing that family heirloom next to the modern furniture and see what happens. If it works, leave it. If not, you can always move it to another place in the home. Each piece helps to share a little bit of you are and tells a little more of your life story. While it might not be a good idea to put the Warhol next to the Monet, when done tastefully, mixing styles can be a fun and charming exercise.
