DO YOU PREFER TO MIX OR MATCH? In my home, I like to do a bit of both, as our stylist Lisa has done for our cover shoot. The furniture, accessories and even the way the wall shelves have been arranged are definitely mixed, but the common thread of blue makes it match. Having a continuation of colour, even in small doses, is a great way to make an eclectic style feel resolved, not chaotic. All the homes in this issue have taken a mix-and-match approach to decorating.
