As much as you may want to buy all new furniture now that you’ve moved into your new home, doing so isn’t always practical. Although starting over from scratch with shiny new pieces for your shiny new place in a shiny new neighborhood may be tempting—sometimes you’ve got to work with what you’ve got. So, after you settle into your new residence, think about these two ways to incorporate your existing furniture in a way that works.
The architecture of your new living room has a rustic bent, but your existing sofa and coffee table lean more modern. You allowed yourself to splurge on two new club chairs that jive with the feel of the house. It’s okay to marry the two looks. When it comes to being eclectic, though, consider these two principles:
Focus on function. Because your pieces have somewhat different vibes make sure each serves a clear and complementary purpose.
Opt for a symmetric layout. A balanced arrangement can help unify your design.
With an emphasis on function and symmetry, your design can be presented as intentional rather than piecemeal, and the individual character of the furnishings can be showcased and not played down.
Use Unifying Kitchen Hardware and Fixtures
When it comes to your new kitchen if your furniture doesn’t quite jive with the design—for instance black barstools with wrought iron legs inside a kitchen with all-white cabinets and counters, you can bridge the gap between the two with kitchen hardware and fixtures. Consider installing matte black sink fixtures, and outfitting your cabinets with matte black knobs and pulls. If you’re in the market for light pendants over your peninsula or island, or for other new light fixtures in the kitchen, install ones in a matte black finish.
