Mix and Match Styles with a Monochromatic Palette

This British bedroom featured on Light Locations is the perfect example of several styles (rustic country, old world Victorian, modern pop) woven seamlessly together with a monochromatic color palette. It reminds us of one of our favorite quotes…

…from Peter York, also featured on Apartment Therapy. In his discussion of a realistic aesthetic, York said, “Nobody talked about “eclectic” then. You had what you had and some of it you liked. You couldn’t just throw things away….if you wanted a chest of drawers for a spare room, you didn’t go to a new shop, you went to Portobello Road, bought some thing Victorian, painted it white and maybe changed the handles.” This approach to decorating combines a hodge-podge aesthetic with an underlying theme that unifies things, and it’s not hard to pull off.
