There’s an art to code mixing, but that doesn’t mean it’s difficult to master. It can be as simple as mixing and matching old and new, bold patterns with simple designs, plus different fabric and surface textures. Gone are the days of matching furniture, colour schemes and décor together, now your home is a blank canvas for you to put your own unique stamp on. Try code mixing in your own home and embrace the eclectic.
Above, Alex Eagle balances a fruit-filled Queen’s WareOrange Bowl on a collection of coffee table books, creating a point of visual interest that mixes modern interiors elements with a design that is over 250 years old. “A mix of old and new is a quintessential part of English style and modern living.”
Mixing new and old objects in your home can create an eclectic décor you’re happy with. There’s no need to go out and buy brand-new furniture and decorative pieces that have matching colours, designs and textures – contrast is king when code mixing.
