Where to Start?

Before you begin your new year, new bedroom adventure, give yourself a moment to take in what you currently have going on style-wise in your bedroom. What do you want to keep, and what do you want to revamp? Working around what furniture you want to keep will be a fun way to upcycle some of your old bedroom pieces while incorporating your new look.

You can also start small by choosing one piece of furniture, such as your bed frame, as a starting point of your mix and match adventure! Here are some of our top tips to get the ball rolling:

Color Scheme

There is an art to mixing and matching styles to avoid the overall look coming across as confusing. Begin painting the portrait of your new bedroom style by choosing a color scheme that you will be consistent with using throughout your design.

Pairing up two neutral accent colors and two neutral shades is a great rule of thumb to help with your color consistency. You can also give each piece of furniture another piece of art or decorations that shares the same color to create a color balance within the space.

Mind the Size

Be mindful of the size of the furniture you choose to keep when selecting new pieces for your bedroom. You want to be sure the room feels and appears visually even. Choosing a bulky bed frame to pair with your current slim and sleek dresser may not be the way to go.

Yin and Yang

Balance throughout the room is also crucial. Try to choose equal amounts of furniture pieces, art, and accessories for each side of the room to provide a balanced, cohesive look throughout the entire space.

Eclectic, Not Chaotic

Mixing styles, colors, textures, shapes, and patterns from different time periods to create an eclectic look can come across as chaotic if not done right. Using the same rule of thumb for color balancing when selecting multiple styles in one space will also help keep your overall style visually even in your room.

It is crucial that you pick furniture that complements each other to give a harmonious look. For example, if you are mixing in brand-new modern pieces with your vintage ones, be sure to have them distributed throughout the room and not all of one style on only one side of your room.

Our team at Albarado’s Fine Furnishings will assist you in hand-selecting the perfect pieces to combine your love for multiple styles into one space with our complimentary interior design consultation service.

Vibe Check

What do you want the overall vibe, energy, and mood of your room to be? Do you want it to feel calming and relaxing, fun and colorful, or moody and masculine? If choosing one is overwhelming to you, let us help you decide!
