Advice: Incorporating different decorating styles into a home?
I know some people have one style and they use it throughout their entire home... I'm on the other side of the fence. I really love it all and have trouble sticking to ONE decorating style!! Excuse the crap cellphone pics... it's all I have... :)
Right now our living room, kitchen area has a modern, sort of Asian-influenced feel to it. Our color scheme is dark woods, with neutral beige (our couch is called coffee- it's sort of the color of a cup of coffee with a good amount of creamer in it) paired with pops of red, light green (sort of a chartreuse color), blue, and aqua.
Our mantel (ignore Santa and the Nutcracker, they were just visiting for the holidays... LOL)
Our couch/living room seating area...
And our kitchen area...
My current bedroom has black and white bedding with touches of light aqua and pale green. However, recently I decided I want to get rid of my black fabrics in the bedroom. We have a white cat who sheds A LOT, and despite constant vacuuming and using a lint roller, our black bed skirt and the black touches on the comforter have no hope of ever looking as they should.
I have been wanting to purchase this bedding set for a while. I'll keep touches of black in the furniture and wall hangings. This bedding has more of a french, shabby chic feel to it. I envision getting an awesome arm chair and adding a vintage-y dress form to the room as well.
So my question for you is can I do this without giving the impression that I am all over the place with my taste? Do you think someone visiting would think they were walking through 2 different homes when they see our living room and then our bedroom (with the new bedding)?
