Matchy, Matchy Monday Done Right

 One of my pet peeves is a room full of matchy matchy furniture.  I prefer to mix it up with contrasting textures, patterns, and coordinating colors. 
After all, the art of design is in the mix.

So now you’re going to think I’m a hypocrite but …
Something about the combination of wallpaper used with coordinating fabric has really been catching my eye recently. 
I realize it’s a bit of a “page of out the old vintage decorating book”, but I believe 
if done right (limiting yourself to just one piece of matching fabric) it can really make a statement!

What are your thoughts on matchy matchy done right?
