Monday Inspiration: Plenty of Pattern

I get a lot of clients that love clean palettes featuring lots of neutrals with small pops of color. But every so often I get a client that loves pattern as much as I do.

The key to playing with pattern is to keep the color palette in the same family. This sitting room design by Holly Bellomy features a neutral for the upholstered chairs and accent pillows, but used two different patterns that meld perfectly.

One of my clients wanted to build a family space that pulled their entire home together and showed their traditional style combined with their whimsical personalities. Layering fun modern chairs on a oriental rug and pulling it all together with the drapes gave them traditional pieces and mixed patterns that we all loved!

The key to success is to use only 3-4 patterns in one space, and to vary their scale so the eye isn’t confused. It’s easy to find inspiration in pattern!

 

Warmly,
