One common denominator when it comes to designing the perfect space, is fabric selection. I think we can all vouch for the hours that have been consumed by searching for the right fabric combination. We want the space to be easy on the eyes to all of our guests, but still be playful and cozy to our own. One way to create that perfect, playful environment is by pattern mixing! I know what you’re thinking-“pattern mixing? Yuck!”- BUT, when done correctly, different patterns combined together can actually create a fun environment! Mixing patterns throughout the space creates a playful texture to our minds eye, just like different materials provide different textures to our touch! So, how do we combine patterns without the space looking too busy? The trick is as follows:
- Stick to Your Patterns Style
- Vary Patterns by Scale, Design, and Shape
- Follow Your Color Schematics
As long as you stick to your design style, mix up the overall size of the patterns, play with different shapes, and stay with-in your color palette, you will create a playful environment that flows throughout your space!
Have fun mixing!
