When the only decorating rule for this home is that there isn't any rule, the result is a space that's loaded with personality! Renovated by interior design firm Space Sense and styled by the homeowner, this penthouse is filled with home decoration ideas that mix different styles.

Contemporary and classic home furnishings are thrown together effortlessly in the charming open plan living and dining area. Even something as unexpected as a mannequin can be blended into the space as decor!

The living room's walls are kept white in order for the homeowner's existing furniture to blend in seamlessly. He has had this antique filing cabinet from Shanghai for more than a decade, and it looks right at home against a rustic exposed brick wall. Here, the homeowner has also successfully brought differing patterns, colours, and textures tastefully together to add more visual interest to the living room.

The homeowner's eccentric home decorating style is evident in this vignette that's set up in the living room, where contemporary furniture and art are placed alongside a vintage side table and shelf. To achieve this quirky style at home, be sure to mix designs with similar colour palettes. Putting together chairs and shelves of varying colours together may result in more visual clutter than charm!

Even the industrial style kitchen, with its raw concrete floors and walls, enjoys a surprise element thanks to a traditional painting. The artwork also adds another dimension to this functional space, and prevents it from appearing too severe.

The bedroom, which has a timeless colonial appeal to it, is treated with a dose of asian-inspired aesthetics. Topped off with an invigorating abstract art work mounted above the headboard, this space comes together to form a stylish setting without too many decor accessories.
