mix and match style

I saw a glimpse of the home of Temple St. Clair Carr in the portfolio of photographer Eric Piasecki and was very intrigued by the warm mix of modern, ethnic and traditional decor. I was beyond thrilled to come across a more extensive tour of this jewelry designers home in the book So Chic by the editors of Elle Decor.






What are your thoughts on mix and matching different styles?

I like the look of mixed styles.

And I adore that piece of furniture in the 2nd to last photo. I would LOVE to find something like that for my house.

I love to mix and match... and from the pictures, you can tell it adds such great character (I'm swooning for the Tulip Table of course!)

Mixing and matching gives your interior sometimes just that little extra it needs.
