This breakfast nook is all about color, texture, and pattern. Keeping with the rest of the home's flea-market feel, the homeowner chose to dress the windows in golden drapes with a vintage inspired pattern which pairs beautifully with the woven shades. Through the reupholstered chair cushions and makeshift table runner, the rich golden tones appear in a subtle manner.
This home is outfitted almost entirely in vintage items found at flea markets or given by family members. Here, savvy, mismatched style wraps the home in warmth and originality that make even unlikely pieces and pairings work together beautifully.
In this master suite, eye-catching colors and patterns mix with vintage pieces for an off-the-cuff design. Don't concern yourself with matching specific pieces, what's more important is the overall effect, such as the mix of red floral curtains, pink bedspread, and light blue padded bench.
Designer's Tip: Enjoy the hunt and don't worry about making everything match. Trust your intuition and let special pieces speak to you.
