At Window Treats serving Monmouth Beach, we know that our customers frequently need to adjust a look in a home or a room, often because they’re combining two households with different styles. Although it can seem daunting, it’s very doable to blend two different styles. Just read on for some tips!
Find Commonalities in Color
To blend two different styles, one quick approach is through a common color. Use a coordinating or complementary color on an accent wall or add some dimension with a color combo. In terms of color, your window treatments can be what ties everything together. Modern Precious Metal Aluminum Blinds are a classic. Duette® Honeycomb Shades offer the most variety and are available in 39 different fabrics with a total of 424 colorways that will allow you to coordinate your color scheme. Plus, this premium honeycomb collection has a wide selection of opacities and textures to choose from, which is perfect when combining design styles.
Make a Few Small Changes
If you want to prevent a traditional room from looking too stuffy and old-fashioned, add something modern, such as brightly colored throw pillows or new modern window treatments. Pirouette® Window Shadings by Hunter Douglas are perfect in bridging the gap between traditional and modern styles.
Rule of Thumb
When combining styles, generally try to follow the 80/20 rule: 80% of the room is the main style, including large pieces of furniture that are either hard to give up or hard to replace, and 20% of the room is the new design style, 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.
