Is it okay to mix the finishes in my house?
A FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION...
Most of us don't have the luxury of designing a brand new house and making every choice match. So you have to focus more on your style and the finishes within the room. Keep them so they blend nicely and really to add interest. Seriously, if everything matches it can become extremely boring. And who likes boring?
Here's some popular alternatives that just might have you thinking...
OUTSIDE THE BOX
Galvanized metal is a huge trend in the farmhouse home. Farmhouse lighting that incorporates this trend looks especially nice in the kitchen. The hanging lights look like they are made from milk jugs. The rustic quality of these lights echoes the reclaimed wood of the island below.
This impressive lighting fixture combines a reclaimed wooden ladder with three crystal chandeliers. The crystal is a nod to shabby chic style and brings an elegant, old-fashioned feeling to the light. The contrast between the crystals and the distressed ladder makes a charming departure from the usual style.
Old fashioned lanterns make this light fixture unique. The lanterns are retrofitted with bulbs and hung on chains from a distressed wood fixture. The two bright lanterns make a farmhouse kitchen shine. The old fashioned style blends in with the farmhouse kitchen in a charming manner.
CONCLUSION- MIXING METALS
Mixing metals through out your home doesn't have to be difficult. (Even Joanna Gaines does it. LOL) Just keep your style consistent and you'll be find. The days of the hand-bag color matching the shoe color are over...Enjoy!
