Regulars at Artzzle know my feelings about rules in decorating. I think of rules as stair steps. You have to take some steps to get to the top, but it’s just fine to skip a few along the way. It’s been proven that some of the design “rules” that once were law, have long since been repealed (or should have been).
Ah … HOUZZ, you all know I love that website. A designer featured there recently, confirms everything I support, suggest and see through in my projects. Perhaps it’s the common age or the fact that we’ve both been doing this … well … forever, but I had to share her article with you. You’ll read “no matchy, matchy”; “yes, dark colors can be used in a small space”; “yes, it is just fine to mix woods and metals … and big shock … even pieces with different styles”. Sound familiar, readers? Exactly!
So everyone, meet Becky Dietrich. Click the photo, absorb and enjoy!
