Mixed styles and bold colours add personality.
"This is a great space by designer Miles Redd," says Toronto blogger Jen Selk. "This New York apartment from House Beautiful really inspired me to be brave with colour. That purple sofa is wonderfully unique. Many people would balk at a big coloured sofa like this one, but I think it's important to live with furniture that has personality. While I'm sure nearly every piece in this room was expensive, I love that you could achieve a similar look with thrift store finds."
