Can You Use Furniture from Different Periods?

Most modern design ideals seem to have the idea that everything has to match. To be in keeping. This can lead to people sticking to a ‘theme’ throughout their home. Everything matches and takes from the same colour palette. While this can lead to a striking house, it often doesn’t lend itself to making a very good home.

Often, people only adhere to this rule as they feel they can’t do anything else. The idea of mismatched furniture and themes doesn’t enter their head. It’s a shame, as this mish mash of design, colours and styles is very much a design ideal unto itself.

Often used by antique and art collectors, who are exposed to varying styles in their day to day work, this style is called… well, it doesn’t really have a name, as the interiors tend to represent their owners too closely to be considered any particular style. However, we tend to find that this style sits somewhere between traditional, rustic and shabby chic.

One aspect of this style that is vital is that all pieces that are used are genuine. A dresser that has been artificially aged will look obvious next to the footstool that is 150 years old.

This best way to replicate, or make this style your own, is to try and form a personal relationship with all the pieces you buy. The chair that you haggled for 20 minutes straight over, the painting that was a hand-down from your grandma, the pans that you found in that bizarre little charity shop. By doing so you become the constant theme that runs through your home.

An example of this style carried our perfectly can be seen in this article. And why not look at our Pinterest board for more inspiration.
