Wallpaper Round Up : For The Babes

I am FAR from being ready to have babies right now, but I do get a little jealous when clients come to me to design their nurseries. I mean, you literally have the excuse of all excuses to turn that sporting equipment/guest room/office (ours currently donned "The Rumpus Room") into a dreamlike space filled with all the color, plushness and pattern that you could never really commit to anywhere else in your home. Gone are the days of the Power Ranger / Cabbage Patch Kids/ Care Bare themed rooms (dating myself here) - nurseries are becoming more of an integration of pieces you already own with a few sweet touches of course - one of my favorites being wallpaper!  Wallpaper these days is so incredible - from the range of patterns, price points, and the fact that you can even get removable wallpaper so you don't have to freak when you're babe turns 5 and all of a sudden isn't so stoked about the gold puffer fishes his super hip mom covered his room with (he doesn't know how lucky he is!)

How To Master Mismatched Dining Chairs Like A Pro

If there is one thing that screams eclectic and cool its mismatched dining chairs- but this look can quickly go from "je ne sais quoi" to "faux pas" (see what I did there) if not done correctly. Check out my tips on how to pull off this trend like a pro!

Same Chair Different Color 

If you're feeling timid about this trend, this is a great place to start - choosing one chair and varying up the color is an easy way to make your home feel eclectic and playful.

Same Chair Different Upholstery 

Similar to the technique above - however I'd be sure that the fabrics are united by either being in a similar color family or made from a similar type of fabric (ie.,, as done below with South American textiles)

Different Chair Same Color 

Pairing different chairs in the same color allow you to mix up height and style while still feeling balanced and consistent.

Mix Modern with Vintage 

 Don't be afraid of mixing styles! Mixing traditional and modern pieces helps make a room feel eclectic and collected rather than one dimensional. I say the more stark the contrast the better this technique works!

Play With Neutrals 

Working with neutrals helps create visual consistency when mixing and creates a sense of modernity thats feels oh-so Scandinavian.

Mix Up Material and Weight 

Love the dramatic contrast between the heavier wingback style chairs at the heads of the table and the polycarbonate chair (and its playful nod to the Louis XV chair!).

Play With Height

Placing highback chairs on the ends of the table is always a good idea !

Mismatch In Pairs 

Mixing up chairs in pairs can help create balance and also symmetry.

Let The Masters Do Their Thang 

You know what they say - if you've got it, flaunt it! If you have some amazing iconic chairs I say put them all together, throw in a rustic vintage table, and you've got yourself a Parisian masterpiece!
