I love a good mash-up. Did you see the mash-up at The Grammys of Maroon 5's Daylight and Alicia Keys' Girl on Fire? It was awesome – two very different songs working together to make something new and more interesting.

Now imagine that idea in home decor. Remember my posts about a zesty couch and Franz Kline inspired art? I recently got a brochure in the mail from Calico that paired up a floral couch with graphic, abstract art.

Much like how the buzz in fashion is to combine different prints and patterns in one outfit, the same works in the home. The key here is a common black palette, neutral wall color and a simple (though cool) lamp.

Have you tried any bold mash-ups lately?
