Balanced Juxtaposition

One recommendation that I have for novice DIY decorators is don't worry about being matchy-match. You don't have to buy the whole set or complete line. Most of the time, contrived juxtaposition results in balance. In my breakfast area, I blended two sets of chairs (purchased at DWR's sample sales) to create an intimate breakfast area.

Also, in a later post I mention how I love the Saarinen. I caved and just got its close cousin. I love Ikea's Docksta. It suits my need for now.
