Comment décorer dans un style mix and match

by Sara Costi

A modern furnishing trend that allows you to blend different styles, materials, furnishing elements, shapes, geometric patterns, colours and nuances, for a functional, comfortable look, creating solutions with a striking visual impact: this is the mix&match approach. This distinct contrast with minimalism is the ideal furnishing choice for those seeking to combine styles and to take a step beyond tradition and to design functional living spaces marked by striking contrasts.


Past meets present, forming a smooth, graceful style for original living spaces that tell the story of the passing of time. A country-style kitchen, featuring a traditional-style wrought iron hood, an elegant worktop in marble-effect porcelain stoneware teamed with a large island in antiqued wood with a white painted finish: these are just a couple of examples.

A floor tiled with wood-effect stoneware tiles teamed with ceramic coverings in shades of white and sky blue, to create an original Nordic-style effect. An attractive colour effect obtained by adding a dash of red to the chairs and topping the table with a ceramic slab in the same colour as the wall tiles, to shape a cheerful, comfortable setting.

In a living area with an austere, formal flavour, with concrete-effect porcelain stoneware floor tiles in shades of grey, a wicker armchair stands out with its almost ethnic look.

The rigorous, minimal style, composed of a few furnishing elements with clean-cut lines and soft, even colours, combines with the stoneware cementine tiles to form a sort of vibrant patchwork. Typical elements of tradition, with a retro flavour, team with more modern features to create a sophisticated, eclectic setting.

Mixing different decorative patterns is also an ideal solution for creating an original carpet effect, with the advantage that it’s easier to clean and thus more hygienic. Thanks to the volume effects, decorative intertwining patterns and variety of colours, the cementine tiles are the ideal solution to create lively, distinctive settings.

Together with furniture and accessories, Casalgrande Padana ceramic tiles form an actual furnishing accessory able to combine perfectly with any other type of material, from natural materials such as wool, cotton or silk to industrially produced materials such as iron, steel, glass, aluminium or concrete. With its original, cheerful combinations, the mix&match style can also enhance settings, bringing a personal touch to floors and walls with porcelain stoneware tiles. The wide choice of colours, surfaces, thicknesses and formats offers endless style options, in a fun, skilful mix of contrasting styles and shades, and the large formats make it possible to lay the porcelain stoneware tiles without cutting them, with a minimal number of barely visible joints that can be used to create a wallpaper look, to tile walls and doors flush with walls, covering either the whole wall or just a part of it.
