Midday Muse: In the Mix

Growing up, I was a well-coordinated girl. My mother dressed me well, always pairing a stripe with a solid, never mixing patterns, often a bow in my hair, shoes shined, etc. And then Sienna Miller came along with her Bohemian chic and made it okay to look messy, to mix florals with stripes, to clash colors. In the world of interiors, I've noticed the same. Pick up any shelter magazine and you'll see a bold mix of texture, pattern, and color that hasn't always been accepted. I'm not sure if there is a correlation between the two . . . if people feel more free to decorate eclectically because they dress that way, or if it's just a coincidence. Or perhaps this is all a mirage, and since I've moved out of my mother's traditionally-styled home, I am just personally embracing a more eclectic look in my own home. Either way, I'm digging it, and I like to mix things up.

i grew up the EXACT same way - when you couldn't mix patterns or people thought that you were a mess. i love this style/look though - i think that it shows that you're up with trends and that you're free spirited.
