Mixing patterns and prints can bring visual interest and make a statement in any space. One-of-a-kind pillows and handmade throws are the perfect way to add an instant touch of personality to a room without being too matchy-matchy. Try combining a stripe with a floral print. For my home, I like pairing neutrals to create this look. Mixing patterns and bold prints allows me to add a unique touch of personality to any room. With just a few well-placed items can instantly refresh my space with texture, neutrals, and style.
If you are looking to mix patterns to add texture and layers to your home, I have four tips you should consider.
- Find Common or similar colors. I like using earthy tones, such as ivory, taupe, cream, black, gray, and brown. I think using color schemes within the same color palette makes it work.
- Create a visual balance. Use different size pillows to create balance.
- Provide contrast by using light and dark shades of color. Using lighter and darker shades of colors
- Don't overthink it. Finding which patterns work best with others is often a matter of trial and error. So don't be afraid of trying a few combinations to find the one that works for you.
These are just a few examples of some pieces I love from my collection at Lola Earl to help you achieve this look. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Thanks for reading!
