Mismatched decor that looks like it was casually thrown together is all the rage. But making it work can be a real stumper for the design novice. The secret? Odd numbers. Start with a set, then break it up with one, three or five contrasting items. It’ll give any room, dining set or centrepiece a boho look that is very of the moment.
