When it comes to acquiring wealth and enjoying a luxury lifestyle, achieving financial independence is a key component. How do you achieve financial independence?

Maybe it’s a Hollywood Regency-style mirror, or a set of bold-hued embroidered pillows from India that caught your eye. And what about those 18th-century portraits you inherited from your grandmother. How do you mix them all together? Merging different décor styles in the same room can be refreshing—and even more interesting than sticking with the same theme throughout. “Mixing different styles and periods of décor creates a richer and more dynamic space,” said interior designer and architect Joan Craig, a partner in Chicago-based Lichten Craig.
