What Houzz contributors are saying:
Mix and mingleIf your style is eclectic and your only design rule is there are no rules, then tartan’s for you. You thrive on the unexpected and edgy to express your individuality. You put tribal, floral, patchwork, ikat and geometrics together in surprising combinations, so why not a colourful tartan or two? Play around with a tartan rug tucked around a sofa seat and pile on mismatched cushions until you get the look you’re after.
6. Feel the folkThis wonderfully white living room, complete with white shelving displaying magazines with neat white spines, is broken up by a few pieces of seating. A sharp, contemporary charcoal sofa would have given this space a very Scandi feel but, instead, an Ercol piece dotted with homespun cushions takes this white scheme in a folk/mid-century direction. It’s an unexpected and winning choice that keeps white on its toes.
