Hang your art’—this is the silliest rule! We often prefer art leaning on a wall or layered on a console. It’s a little bohemian, and very chic. For interior-design novices, it can become easy to cling to perceived décor true-isms. All woods must be the same finish! The living room furniture must match! But according to interiors designers, there are many so-called home decor rules that you should actually break.
#1. You don’t have to match your metals
Many people think that if they have a chrome faucet they have to have chrome or silver cabinet hardware in their kitchen. Pairing brass cabinet pulls with chrome sink fixtures and stainless steel appliances is so beutiful. Having chrome or stainless steel in a kitchen doesn’t mean that every metal in the room has to be chrome or stainless steel.
