5 Ways to Decorate with Pattern

2016-10-10
Are you tired of coming home to a nondescript bedroom? Or have you had the same style for years and want to give your room a new look? Check these 5 ways to decorate with Pattern

1. Think about scale.

Always mix bold, large-scale patterns with more diminutive motifs. Otherwise things will get overwhelming.

2. Use your walls as an anchor.

To keep patterns from feeling too disparate, select fabrics that have at least one color in common and use that—or a tonal variation on it—for the walls.

3. Hang a tapestry on the wall.

Textiles don’t have to go on the bed—think outside the boxspring. Use a tapestry as an artwork, behind the bed, and let it pull the color scheme of the room together.

4. Edit your palette.

Choose three or four colors to work with—persimmon, lavender, and pale blue, for instance. If you stick to your palette, you can use loads of pattern and it will always feel cohesive.

5.Turn a pale print into a solid.

Let subtle prints—like a white fleur-de-lis on icy blue—function as solids, using them for sheets with a bold duvet. Or the other way around!
