Interior Design How-To: Pattern Mixing with Confidence

pattern mixingPatterned fabrics and wall-coverings add fabulous visual interest to a space. Many people shy away from patterns because they are not sure exactly how to combine them to create a visually stunning result without creating a confusing, disjointed look.

Try these pattern mixing guidelines:

  • Switch the scale – Choose patterns of different scales – some large scale, some medium scale, some small scale.
  • Commit to color – Select patterns within a color scheme. Contrasting colors work together well, but also consider using shades of the same color.
  • Visual break – Place patterns in the space in a way that allows for some spaces with no pattern to give the eye a moment of rest.

Patterned fabrics, wall-coverings, and accessories visually enhance a room. Experiment with patterns to find a combination that works in your space.
