Smidge At Home | Mix & Match

I mentioned earlier this year that I would be giving you all a look into Casa Velocci. Our home is a work in progress – mostly because I keep moving pieces around, adding new elements and pretty much can’t stay away from a Homesense.

We’ve curated a style that is fresh, modern and bright to contrast our dark, hard wood floors and espresso cabinetry. I’m not one for matching every piece in one space; so our furniture is a combination of materials – wood, glass and metal but with similar lines and shapes.

This week, I’m sharing how I’ve paired textiles around the house. Mixing and matching colours, patterns and textures to add character and dimension to each space. Each room flows into the next with similar tones and colour palettes – neutral base with pops of bright yellows, teals and blues.

My tip – don’t be afraid of colour! Find textiles that have similar tones but vary in pattern, size and texture. On that note, mix up your patterns too, by pulling out like colours. If you prefer neutrals, layer your bedding and pillows with whites or greys but toss in a faux fur sham, subtle stripe or velvety throw.

The best part of mixing and matching is that every piece is interchangeable. I’ve moved pillows from the living room into the office and vice versa. Accent pieces are easy to shuffle around the house as well. It’s a cost efficient way to style each space and not get tired of your decor. For the best decor pieces (like the ones in the photos above) at affordable prices visit Homsense, Bouclair and Walmart!
