Herunterladen, um offline zu lesen

Great news! Contrary to what you might think, the wood finishes in your home do not have to match.

Don’t worry if you have an eclectic mix of wood furniture. When done right, you can create a stunning room using a variety of wood tones, colours and styles in a way that would make an interior decorator proud.

Using a variation in patterns, textures and shades is not only an eye-catching way to decorate a living room, dining room or bedroom, it’s also a practical way to decorate.

Most people don’t buy all their furniture from one place or at one time. The unique finish is more interesting than the matchy-matchy look of the past.

Read on to learn how to properly mesh a mish-mash of wood furniture with these 28 design rules.
