And not only do I love mixing and matchingI also love including vintage and antique pieces alongside my new furniture.
If youwalk through my shop or my house you’ll find I mix a lot of new furniture like sofasand upholstery alongside very classic antique pieces.
So today I wanted to share a quick designtip on how to mix and match furniture and how to include antiques in one of my favoriterooms – the bedroom!! I adore mixing antiques in the bedroom becausethis room allows for a lot of casegoods or hard pieces such as nightstands, benches,dressers, armories & so on.
There are so many great spots to include painted pieces, vintageand antique pieces.
So here is my insider design secret for youon how to bring in the mixed & matched style – I love using vintage or antique commodesor chests of drawers as nightstands.
Whether painted or stained, I love using these pieceswith any style of bedroom furniture.
If I’m working with a darker stained set– my go to style are a “pair” of painted chests.
If I’m working with lighter toned furnitureor even metal tones such as iron beds, I love going for a darker finish on my pieces.
Now here’s the trick, when you look forcommodes you will rarely find a pair – that’s very unusual.
So here are my quick tips onhow-to make a “pair” 1.
Make sure what you are looking at is atleast 27-30”high 2.
Look for a similar style – they don’thave to match but look for a complimentary pair – now they’re probably not goingto be right next to each other so look out for a similar width, similar height & similarcarvings 3.
If they are both around the same height& same style it will look like a pair 4.
You can refinish them to even have a similarcolor Whenever I work on a bedroom, I love lookingaround for two similar styles of commodes like these.
