Hi there! So excited to be a part of the Mix and Match Home Style blog hop hosted by Stephanie from Casa Watkins Living! If you’re coming from Cassie Bustamante, welcome! A full list of all the fab bloggers participating is at the end of this post! If you’re new here, my name is Haneen, mom of four with an art degree, pouring creative energy into making our house a home. This is a fun blog hop because I get asked all of the time how I’d describe my style. Scratch that, maybe fun isn’t the right word. I get stressed when people ask me this! Lol! And the reason is, I don’t have a set style. But that’s why this hop is so great, because it’s all about mixing styles, and that’s exactly what I do.
I think what makes a beautiful room is one that has a “collected” look that tells your story. One that feels like it’s come together over time. One that isn’t limited in color or style, but shines as multiple styles and colors or textures come together. For this post, I was asked to choose three styles that I like to mix. Even narrowing it down to three is hard, but I’m going with MODERN, VINTAGE, and GLAM. Ah! Am I sure?? What about eclectic? Transitional? Somewhat industrial? Kinda global? Down right funky? That’s a style isn’t it? Lol. Ok, Ok, I’ll go with my three.
Let’s get to some rooms and we’ll see how those three styles are mixed to create a successfully curated room…
Our living room actually just got a bit of a makeover, and it’s the best example of all three styles I chose. You can see the reveal by clicking HERE. It had somewhat of a global vibe to it, and my style has evolved a bit, so I wanted to go less global and more midcentury modern. There’s still a touch of global with the wall stencil (I didn’t have the heart to paint over it, it was a labor of love:), but I found great pieces like the tulip coffee table from Lex Mod and the gorgeous credenza from Home Goods, that really brought some MODERN flare. The stars of the show however, and the pieces that bring some GLAM, are the velvet and brass chairs! As for the VINTAGE vibe, I always love love love thrifting for old books. One of my fave things ever. And I had a little fun shopping for a chunk of pink ones to go under this acrylic side table.

Speaking of vintage books, this room is just off of the foyer, and the thrifted/vintage book obsession continues with a recent makeover to our entry. You can see the reveal of that HERE.
In this case, the wall treatment is MODERN, the thrifted books and suitcases are VINTAGE, and the mirror with the brass frame is a little bit GLAM. Fearlessly mix things you love, and it’ll make sense, I promise!
Here’s one last example as proof… our dining room!
Redesigning our dining room was such a joy. (You can see that reveal HERE.) I had a vision and I’m so glad I followed my gut with this. I was kind of going for a museum feel. The gallery wall has some thrifted VINTAGE pieces, but the real vintage piece that shines is the $50 dresser I painted and turned into a buffet. Talk about a before and after! To see the before and catch the tutorial, click HERE. To keep mixing, I found a GLAM chandelier and mirror. MODERN style comes into play in color with the bold, funky wallpaper. All of this created one cohesive room filled with things (and styles) I love.

I hope these three areas of my home were clear examples of mixing styles, and I hope you visit all of the participating bloggers below! If my style is your jam, hop onto the home page of my blog to subscribe and get email notices when I have new blog posts up:)
