Add A Little Sophistication To Your Dining Room

The transitional style is a hybrid that provides a comfortable, casual, and understated interpretation of luxe living. A blend of lighter wood tones, relaxed shades of taupe, ivory, gray and natural textures will give your dining room or breakfast nook an air of laid-back sophistication.

Mix, Match, and Meld

If your tastes hover between contemporary lines and traditional shapes, modern and classic pieces, natural and industrial materials, this style may be perfect for you. The eclectic mix of elements such as button-tufting, turned legs, and breakfront profiles with geometric metal bases, natural materials, and burnished stainless steel tops provides the right blend of old and new. This is also a style that can easily be freshened up by bringing in new elements here and there, or changing out bigger pieces if desired, without having to redo the entire room.

Create a Little Parisian Flair in Your Bedroom

Ah, Paris, city of lights, what could be more romantic? Now you can bring a little Parisian style into your home, especially your bedroom. Parisian style is a mix of new and old, where traditional and modern pieces coexist peacefully, side by side. It is always chic and stylish, just like the city itself. However, the intriguing mix of contemporary and vintage only looks effortless. Here are a few tips for bringing Parisian style to life in your bedroom.

Mix and Not Match

The typical Parisian room will have a mix of old and new styles, art, and books, creating a distinctively eclectic look and feel. It is never too precious or too perfect, but carefully put together so as to look not too thought-out, but definitely not thoughtless. Layered, curated but undecorated, this look depends on the perfect paring of flea market finds or heirlooms with modern pieces for an organic, bohemian eclectic style.

Vintage Appeal

Paris is famous for its flea markets that appear every weekend in a different arrondissement (borough) as if by magic. The by Stanley Furniture exemplifies the glorious juxtaposition of pieces and periods that are the essence of French style. Anchor your room with the Reverie Panel Bed, then accessorize with quirky pieces, knickknacks, and curiosities from your own flea market treasure hunting.

Style With Prints & Patterns

Mixing prints and patterns can bring an airy freshness your home. But it can also be a challenge to mix and match in a way that doesn’t overpower or suffocate your rooms. By keeping it 60/30/10 you’ll create inviting spaces that you love to relax and entertain in. To follow the 60/30/10 guideline, you’ll use 60% of a favorite pattern, 30% of a second pattern, and 10% of a third as an accent. Then experiment with a range of scales: a narrow stripe, a midsize geometric, and a bold floral. Balance the look with solids on a sofa or accent rug.
