I’ll admit it. I am a stickler about matching things, especially when it comes to decor.
I like to have sets – a set of 8 dishes, a pair of 2 chairs for a living room, or a trio of coordinating candlesticks.
I was surprised that I liked this townhouse in Manhattan so much. The mood is really eclectic. One room reminds me of a rustic chic country home with neutral colors and unfinished cabinets. But another room has vibrant bordeaux walls and evokes much more of a passionate response. A small table has two different sets of chairs and bring up a more subtle, elegant vibe.
It reminds me that not everything has to match – pieces can coordinate as well. If I can have just one room with boldly colored walls, I’m set…oh and a room with glorious bay windows.
What kind of touches do you like in your home?
