Part of the charm in a true farmhouse is the way old pieces are given new life or new purpose. You can bring cozy comfort to an old table with a fresh coat of chalk paint. Pair with mixed-and-matched chairs, and then top the table with a jar filled with fresh flowers to complete your farmhouse look.

Already set for a big dinner, this large back porch houses a mixture of seating: vintage metal chairs, white plastic chairs, a canvas directors chair, an old wooden Windsor-style chair and a pair of Adirondack chairs. Designer Tip: You don't have to buy a set of all matching furniture. Mix it up and take the indoors out; it can always come back in.
Mixing up the colors of a matching set in bright sherbet hues, as seen with this bistro table and chairs, works particularly well in a verdant outdoor setting. The heart-shaped chairs are sweet reminders of yesteryear, and the small round table can serve for a romantic dinner in the garden.

This room is the perfect size for a cozy and comfortable sitting area. A lavender sofa sits under the window surrounded by matching table lamps for a mix of natural and artificial light.

The dining room seating in HGTV Dream home 2015 was given a mix-and-match approach in order to keep the space from feeling too stiff. “When you’re playing with a dining table that has six or eight chairs, that’s a lot of legs and a lot of wood,” explains the home’s interior designer Linda Woodrum. “We were trying to find a way to soften all of that wood, so we have this upholstered piece that’s one part of the seating area, two wooden chairs across from it, and two upholstered chairs at the end.”
This transitional kitchen has an island with black cabinets and white countertop, while the perimeter cabinets are white with a gray countertop complimented by light gray wall paint. An iron, circular light fixture hangs above the wooden dining table and matching chairs, white pendant lighting hangs over the island, and recessed lighting is mixed in providing plenty of light in this bright kitchen.
