Listed in "7 Things Every Stylish Person Has in Their Home"* are the following:
1. A mix of vintage and new furniture...Check!
2. A gallery wall...Check!
3. A statement rug...Check!
5. A carefully styled bookcase...Check!
6. Sculptural objects...Check!
7. Mixed materials...Check!
Funny thing, though. Being "stylish" wasn't my goal when I started buying vintage furniture and accessories. I just loved the stuff. I think I liked it better before everyone jumped on our bandwagon.
