You know we don’t like to match things here at StyleTipsy. We love to mix instead! New and vintage, high and low, classic and trendy – it’s what makes things interesting!

Sure it’s fun to hit a flea market on a weekend but when the weather gets too hot, who hasn’t wished they could shop while dipping their toes in the pool? Guilty!

That’s why we love to shop for vintage finds at great prices. See the custom StyleTipsy mix we created over the holiday weekend:


chairish mood board

We started with a great colorful area rug for a touch of Bohemian feel. The super long modern table sporting beautiful veneers called for not one but 3 light fixtures and these Mediterranean lanterns are simply perfect. Two styles of dining chairs make things interesting – the dark finish is the unifying feature, one of the shapes is more feminine than the other, and the upholstery choices range from cool (with soft gray animal print) to warm (with leather and cane, which complement the rug beautifully). A warm brass faux bamboo tray adds to the cool/warm mix.
