Mixing and Matching Bar Stools and Dining Chairs
Who says that your dining set needs to be comprised of matching pieces? And for that matter, why should your home’s bar stools match with the dining set? There is something quite attractive and creative about putting together seating pieces with slightly different details and designs. Sometimes referred to as Bohemian style, this article goes over the basics of mixing and matching dining chairs and counter stools.
Boho or Eclectic Style
A Bohemian or eclectic decorating style is often inspired by our experiences and travels. It means that you take little details from various cultures and locales and appreciate them for what they are. If you often mix patterns and colors in your outfits, purchase decorative objects based on how they make you feel and would never consider buying a matched set of anything, then the boho style is definitely for you. You won’t have any problem combining different styles, such as contemporary with mid-century modern, farmhouse with shabby chic or country with traditional. Not only are styles perfectly acceptable to mix, you can certainly feel free to play around with a blend of textures, patterns and designs. This creates maximum interest and tells the story of you and your tastes.
