Why limit yourself to just one style of living? Although this creates a harmonious overall picture, it can sometimes seem too monotonous. If you want to mix styles in your interior, there are a few points to consider:

  • Tip 1: If you want to combine furnishing styles with each other, you should choose two or a maximum of three styles. Otherwise your four walls will quickly become a mess.
  • Tip 2: You can ensure a harmonious overall concept if you always combine a reserved style (e.g. Scandi Chic) with a more unusual one (e.g. Boho style).
  • Tip 3: Find a common denominator! So that you know which interior design styles go together, they should agree on at least one point. This can be the material, shapes, color or other character traits.

Living styles by room

  • A suitable interior design style for the kidsroom? In principle everything is possible here. The children feel particularly comfortable in a cozy and natural atmosphere. Therefore, you can opt for the country house style or the Scandinavian style.
