When You Can Name Your Style, It's Time To Mix It Up

When You Can Name Your Style, It's Time To Mix It Up

One of the many items seen at the Milan Furniture Fair. Check out this past weekend's LA Times for a roundup of the best and the worst).
The other day, we shared with you how bringing home something new underscored that it was time to make some changes in our home. While many of us have recently been in survivor mode, you don't have to buy something new to know if its time to make some changes to your home. If your first thought on seeing this couch was, "That would totally go with my alpine-themed decor!" we're talking to you....

While most of us struggle to determine what our style is, we've been thinking lately that the minute you can put a label on your home, that that may be the real indication that it's time to make some changes. High, low, modern, vintage, plain, fancy; what's modern is mixing it up. It's picking and choosing from your favorites and then finding a way to tie them all together, whether that's by colour, leg style, material or pure chutzpah. All Hollywood Regency or all Mid-Century or all Organic Modern makes your home look like a page from a catalogue or like it's stuck in a time capsule. How's your home? Time to give it a jolt?
