YIPPEEEE! You just purchased your dream home!

(Diamond in the rough?)

Okay, maybe it’s not your dream home…..yet. It might need a little work here and there—a fresh coat of paint, some new carpeting…an entirely, brand spankin’ new kitchen. 

Let’s face it, furnishing and updating your home is EXPENSIVE.  And buying brand new, matching furniture sets for every last room? Forget it! We feel for you, sister. And we want to help you out in the only way we know how.

Lucky for you, consignment furniture can work WONDERS in your space! It saves you money, adds character to your home, and let’s be honest…it makes decorating so much more fun!

Worried about your room looking like a hodgepodge of random, mixed-and-matched pieces all jumbled together? Here are some tips on making your mismatched space look absolutely DIVINE.

       1. Pick a general style/time-period
      Whether you choose to go modern, vintage, antique, or anywhere in between with your furniture, try not to let yourself mix design-eras together. Pick furniture that represents one general era, and your room will seem to fall together effortlessly.

       2. Decide on a color-scheme
Painting or staining a set of mismatched furniture can really unify the varied styles.

       3. Use coordinating fabric
Pick one or two fabric patterns that work well together and use them to upholster chairs, create matching drapery, and add accent pillows around the room to really tie everything together.

These are just a few ways to coordinate mismatched furniture….but I bet all of you creative minds have even more great ideas! How would you (or did you) make this look work in your space? We’d love to hear from you!
