You don’t want or need everything in your bedroom match perfectly. A mix-and-match bedroom design can give your room a sense of personality and character -- it can be fun and create an inviting space. Plus, mixing bedroom furniture gives you the freedom to make design choices based on what you like and not simply what comes in a set. Some of the most interesting rooms are those with a variety of styles and designs.
When it comes to a mix-and-match look, there are no rules. You can make subtle changes, or you can mix it all up for a more eclectic look! The question is how to mix and match without going overboard. Here are some tips that can make it easier to create a room that is uniquely your style.
Bedroom Color Scheme
Determine what color inspires you and keep that same color scheme throughout your bedroom suite. Using a specific color or color family can help you create a mixed style that is not over the top. Once you identify the color, you can choose different shapes and patterns that will give your bedroom that mix-match feel without being unsettling. For example, if you choose a blue color scheme you can experiment with different blue patterns in throws, comforters, rugs and wallpaper to enhance the entire room.
Bedroom Focal Point
One thing you definitely want when mixing and matching decor in your bedrom is maintaining a sense of balance for the room. You can help achieve this by choosing a focal point and creating the rest of the design to around that piece. For example, if you love a specific bed, make that the focal point of the room and choose furniture that is different in style but similar in size and weight. You don't want your bedroom furniture to contrast so much that it is distracting, so make sure it is similar in dimension.
Bedroom Furniture Wood Color
You can choose wood grains that are similar colors but different styles. You can either choose furniture in all the same wood family or with a bit of variation. This allows you to pick different styles of furniture without deviating too far from the look of the room. For example, if you choose a light-colored wood bed, add antique nightstands or a dresser made from wood in the same family but not an exact match. If the colors coordinate, the style can be different while still giving a cohesive look.
Remember that mixing and matching bedroom furniture is supposed to be fun! Your bedroom should be a reflection of your personality, so first priority is pleasing yourself. Pick pieces that you enjoy and you will surely create a bedroom suite that feels like your own personal retreat!
