Home > Lifestyle > Two Styles, One Design

By Cheryl Luckett

Developing a design plan for clients is not always an easy task.  Add to that conflicting styles and you’ve got a recipe for disaster.  When I’m pulling together spaces for couples there are a few things that I like to keep in mind that I believe are keys to merging two design aesthetics into one.

  1. I like to have a really good understanding of what each party is looking for in terms of style.  Perhaps it’s bohemian for one and traditional for another.  It’s my job to take the two styles, no matter how different, and make them work together.  In order to accomplish this I have to know what each wants.  The problem, when there isn’t a designer to mediate, is that typically couples don’t take the time to really listen and understand what the other desires.  We have a tendency to so heavily on how different their style is from our own, that we close ourselves off from the possibility of meeting somewhere in the middle by merging the two.
  1. Find the Right Mix. The key here is to make sure that the design addresses both styles.  You also need to make sure that there is equitable representation of each style.  Adding in a single element to appease the other isn’t going to work here.  Here’s an example.

Example- client project

For this project I needed to merge his affinity for modern with her love of antiques.  This antique cabinet is a great example of how we combined their two styles.  The back of the piece was outfitted with a cardboard insert covered in a modern green and white trellis wallpaper.  The cardboard allowed us to jazz up the piece without damaging the valuable heirloom.  He got a little modern and she got to keep her treasured antique. That’s what I call a win-win.

  1. Make it work.  What most fail to understand is the fact that so many styles can work together.  The rules are made to be broken.  Often, the most beautiful spaces include an eclectic mix of styles.  It’s your home!  It should represent you.

 

Here are a couple of examples of how to make it work.

See! It’s not nearly as difficult as it might seem. The key is to take the time to listen, find the mix of what both of you want and make it personal. Your home should be an expression of who you are and most importantly a place you love to be.

  197. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to
    my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I

  198. Hey There. I found your blog using msn. This is a really well written article.
    I’ll be sure to bookmark it and come back
    to read more of your useful information. Thanks for the post.
    I will certainly comeback.

  199. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message
    home a bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog.

    An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

  200. pridemagazineonline.com is an excellent read. I just sent this on 11/11/2016 to a fellow student who’s been involved in a little research of their own on this subject. To say thank you, they just bought me a drink! So, let me express my gratitude by saying: Thanks for the drink!

  201. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you create this website yourself or
    did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz respond as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to know where u
    got this from. thanks a lot

  202. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though
    you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre
    talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to
    your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  203. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site
    owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be
    a lot more useful than ever before.

  204. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of
    the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why
    but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two
    different browsers and both show the same results.

  205. Thanks for one’s marvelous posting! I quite enjoyed reading it, you are a great author.
    I will always bookmark your blog and definitely will come back at some
    point. I want to encourage you to continue your great work,
    have a nice evening!

  206. I believe everything posted was very reasonable.
    However, what about this? suppose you composed
    a catchier title? I am not saying your content is not good., however what
    if you added something that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Two Styles, One
    Design – Pride Magazine is kinda plain. You ought to peek
    at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news titles to grab
    viewers interested. You might add a video or a picture or two
    to grab people excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it
    could make your blog a little livelier.

  207. Great article! That is the type of information that are meant to be shared across
    the web. Disgrace on the search engines for no longer positioning this post upper!
    Come on over and visit my web site . Thanks =)

  208. Hello, Neat post. There’s a problem together
    with your web site in internet explorer, could test
    this? IE nonetheless is the market chief and a big
    section of people will pass over your excellent writing due
    to this problem.

  209. Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    advice from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions?
    Thank you

  210. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
