Cookie cutter style is a thing of the past and when it comes to decorating your dining room, it's no different. For interior designer and Queer Eye star Bobby Berk, that means spicing things up a bit.

Sure, that matching table and chairs set you've had for years is comfortable, but taking more risks in 2019 is a resolution we can all get behind, particularly when it comes to our homes. In a recent post, Bobby suggests a simple risk that can make all the difference—specifically in a dining room—mix and match.

In order to make the look effortless, Bobby shares two main tips:

1) Keep the design of the chairs similar.

By keeping the chairs' designs similar, you give yourself room to play with color and texture, so the seating arrangement remains fresh, but nothing is out of place.

I have #laborday on the brain and that means sitting by the pool and soaking up as much time hanging outside as possible. How beautiful is this unique indoor/outdoor space...I think it would be the perfect place to host a dinner. What are you doing for the long weekend? Design & Photography: Marks and Spencers

2) Switch up the two end chairs.

For a rectangular table, start by focusing on the end chairs, so they can bring the whole table together. If you're feeling brave after, try mi and matching the other chairs as well.

One of the things I love about design is that, in its truest form, it is a physical expression of your personality and you are allowed to break the rules. One of these “rules” is that art is meant to be hung on the wall, but I say that’s one rule that should be broken! I’ve partnered with my friends @artdotcom to share my non-hanging tips. One of my favorites is to embrace the lean. By simply propping up a piece in the right place it can bring the look of your space into another dimension. Not a fan of holes in your wall?
