“RULES WERE MEANT TO BE BROKEN”  

We have all heard this expression before although many are hesitant to be the resident ‘rebel.’ However, when referring to interior design, this logic should definitely be applied. Find what inspires you and feel free to mix in whatever elements appeal to you. There is the ever-interesting design style, eclectic, that supports this theory- “deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources.”

Did you find a gorgeous cowhide rug perfect for your living room but already have an area rug? Layer them! Who said you couldn’t put a rug on a rug?!

I also love integrating silver and gold finishes for a glamorous and interesting touch. Mixing different patterns and prints is another great way to visually stimulate your space and is also a popular trend. In my opinion, one of the most important elements of a successful design is not only making the space cohesive, but letting it reflect your personal style. So loosen up and have fun with designing your space- be bold, be ingenious, be rebellious!
