article, Nunno of FLAIR says: “It’s important that accessories feel cultivated and that you have a connection with them. Try unexpected combinations; break rules by mixing periods, colors, and finishes; and keep spaces fresh by changing things often. Remember, varieties in scale and texture create energy in a space.” They share a few lovely before and afters and explain what wasn’t working about the space and what they did to improve it. Here are couple of their tips that I found the most helpful:
- Don’t have limitations. Always mix it up! Don’t be afraid to mix eras, styles, or colors. Brass looks great with chrome; modern looks great against classical.
- Your home is not a stage set. Is should always evolve and change with you. Don’t be afraid to move things around, try new combinations, add new pieces, and put some old favorite away for a while. They’ll look new to you when you take them back out.
