However blending styles is easier said than done. Here are some tips to blend styles effectively.

Focus on Color

Since blending styles can already be distracting make sure the colors work together and fit an underlying theme. Having too many or too different of colors can make a room look hectic and actually create more of a clash, so while pops of color are fine make sure the colors work cohesively. A color scheme that always works is neutral- whether is be wall color or decor, neutral colors are great for blending styles because you can build up from there.

There are multiple styles of grouping to ensure an easy blend. One is grouping by color: if items are the same, or similar, they blend together effortlessly. Another is by size: if items are similar in size they create a sense of uniformity and form a collection that is appealing to the eye. They key is to group together items that have some sort of similarity, whether it be size, shape, or color, grouping is a sure fire way to make different styles blend together.

Balancing by means of distribution, symmetry, or repetition are ways to make a room flow! Make sure items always have a buddy, or multiple buddies, so they look like they are supposed to be there. Items of similar size but different theme can work beautifully as buddies in scenarios with symmetry. Additionally, distributing items of different styles evenly throughout the room will make your room be more appealing to the eye, and create a sense of flow.
