Merge Different Styles by Using a Common Color

When you’re blending two different styles, consider pulling them together with a common color. A quick coat of paint can easily help you bring pieces together. You don’t need to stick to just one common color. Add a bit more interest with a color combo. You can even use your window treatments to tie everything together. Duette® Honeycomb Shades from Hunter Douglas are available in 39 different fabrics with a total of 424 colorways. Not only can you match or coordinate colors, this premium honeycomb collection has a wide selection of opacities and textures to choose from, which is perfect when combining design styles.

Changing What’s Familiar

One of the most common design styles is traditional. It’s comfortable and familiar. If you want to prevent a traditional room from looking too stuffy and old-fashioned, then mix things up with something modern. This can be done by adding brightly colored throw pillows and new modern window treatments. Pirouette® Window Shadings by Hunter Douglas are perfect in bridging the gap between traditional and modern styles. The unique design of this window treatment provides soft horizontal fabric vanes attached to a single sheer backing. When fully lowered, the vanes flatten for a smooth, more modern look. Slightly raise the vanes for a more traditional, contoured look, or fully open the vanes to provide a clear view to the outside.

Play the Numbers

A general rule of thumb when combining styles is the 80/20 rule. Your main style—for example, traditional—would make up 80% of your home décor. This would include your large pieces of furniture that are either hard to give up or hard to replace. The 20% is the new design style you want to introduce, including that pop of color, texture, pattern, and more. Keep in mind, if you group too many things together from one style, it will draw too much attention—it throws everything off balance. Instead, split up your items and distribute them evenly throughout the space.

Anywhere You Hang Your Hat Is Home

At the end of the day, it only matters if your space is comfortable to you. Any combination of styles can work. From rustic to contemporary to modern and bohemian.
