Although the mix and match look isn't for everyone, the video from Pascal Anson featured over at IKEA Hackers, does make several valid points. A look like this only works when it's really mixed and matched. Doing it half way would make things look a little off, though you could easily mix and match different styles and paint them all the same color or distress their look a little further to make them appear worn and not just disjointed with one another.
If you have a few minutes to kill, make sure to check out Pascal's other YouTube videos that feature home decor projects or the innovation of particular items. Do you like the look he created? Sound off in the comments!
