Eclectic interior decor style is often the result of when two people decide to live together. Resolving disagreements about placement of each other’s stuff and make sense of their combined “interior decor” style is what a good designer should do best. Purposeful Interiors has coined this challenge, the “Blending of Two Hearts”. Each heart comes into the relationship with their own interior decor style, their own “stuff”, and their own idea of how the interior décor and furniture should be displayed.
Rarely have we ran across a client or been in anyone’s home that had a space that looked like an interior designer or interior decorator created it in one style. Maybe the first day furniture was delivered from the “big box” store everything matched with very little clutter. But anyone that has traveled, had children, moved more than once, and/or been in more than one relationship has a collection of “stuff”. And, that’s okay because we believe their collection is what makes for an interesting interior design and interior decor. A sterile home has no personality. So let your “stuff” shine and show it off with style and purpose.
Dissimilar interior decor and furniture can be combined in a vignette (setting) that makes sense. Styling artwork in similar frames and subject matter creates a nice flow for your eyes to take in the details. Pops of color with fun textures or prints adds visual interest. Displaying collections of stuff can be styled in as many creative ways as there are two different personality combinations.
In conclusion, take the stress out of your interior decorating project and let a professional handle the results. After all, it is “your stuff” making the space great. Having a neutral person diplomatically handle the creative process, is well worth the dollars you will spend.
