Modern Provincial Girls Room and Mixing Styles

>> 11.06.2014

Hey friends,

I have a new House to Home post in the works but it's been rainy and dreary over here the last few days and not ideal for taking pictures of some examples in my home, so I decided to do another style board for you today and talk about mixing styles in a room.

Since my last post about finding your design style, I have been thinking a lot about mixing styles. I am really drawn to the clean lines and graphic qualities in modern and mid century decor, but I love me a beautiful provincial style desk or arm chair with curvy lines and turned legs. Especially when it comes to feminine girls rooms, I think mixing styles is a totally acceptable thing to do.

It was love at first sight when I saw this canopy bed by Pottery Barn Teen. It makes my heart go pitter patter. I love everything about it, and it can be used with so many different styles! When thinking about this bed in a pre-teen girls room, I can see it used with bright bold colors and clean-lined furniture, but I can also see it being complimented by a french style desk and soft, feminine fabrics. So I decided, what the heck, I'm going to use both.

I chose a few geometric pieces like the lamp and clock, and decided on a lucite chair, which is a great example of mixing modern design with classic lines. I chose fabrics that were graphic but feminine and romantic, and the Anthropologie wingback chair has a romantic classic feel, but can work in a modern space as well. The french provincial desk from Chairish (which has unfortunately already sold,) and this very traditional, scalloped mirror are both very "Marie Antoinette" but are the perfect bit of girly that this room needs. The gold side table from Chairish is an incredibly versatile piece, as well as the cool bamboo teal dresser, also from Chairish.  So here you go, a modern, provincial style girl's bedroom. What are your thoughts about mixing extreme styles like this?

******Thanks for humoring me with these style boards. They are a fun way for me to stretch myself and improve my design skills, and since these are all for fun, I don't limit myself on budget. The total cost for everything on this style board is $4243, not including the french desk which I remember being at least $1,000. That's a thousand percent more than I could ever dream of spending on a single room for my home, and I certainly don't expect my readers to fork over that much either. But these style boards are meant to inspire, and I hope that if this board inspires you, you can find similar pieces for a thousand percent cheaper and create these looks on a budget you can afford. ******
