I have always mixed patterns in a room and find it very easy. I don't really even think about it, but I have heard many of you say you don't know how. I have read many times that you should have no more than three different patterns in a room. Well, I say bah humbug! Who are the authorities that came up with that one anyway? I know the late great designer Charles Faudree never stopped at three.
In this guestroom I believe I have seven different patterns. What pulls them all together is the common denominator......the color blue.
Stripes and plaid together? Yes, definitely.
The blanket type fabric Euro shams are my newest find. I got them deeply discounted from the Pine Cone Hill outlet on line. I love the texture they add to warm up this very light and bright room.
This pillow has a very small print and it works with the plaid and stripes of the other pillows again because of the blue.
The curtains have a large pattern and they mix well with the other patterns, but soon these curtains may be replaced with something else.
Blue ticking lamp shades is another fun pattern.
Even the blue and white jar adds more pattern.
The rolled quilt adds another pattern in a discreet way.
Patterns add so much to a room and make it feel warm and welcoming.
So go ahead and mix those patterns and don't be afraid.
Just be sure to have one of the same colors in each piece and mix large and small patterns and you'll be mixing like a pro.
Have an awesome week and if you don't come back for Wow Us Wednesdays I'm wishing y'all a very Happy Thanksgiving.
