Except for the messy, graffiti walled one, I love these. The graffiti reminds me what my daughter and her friends did to one room is why. I grew up in an interesting house, filled with an assortment of antiques so feel right at home. Must get book.

Layering is such an important factor when trying to create the imperfect look. Gather all of your favourite things. Are any colours, shapes or patterns similar? Mix and match your items to create an "undone" appearance, keeping your colour pallet and theme in mind. Tribal items can usually be paired together no matter what because they usually incorporate wood, or warmer shades that compliment cooler colours very well.

I believe this type of look is very difficult for the average person to pull of correctly. It can too easily become just a mess.
