Picking Patterns For Your Home

.


Most of us are aware that interior design trends are cyclical and for the last several years, the trend was in the use of clean lines, solid fabrics and simple shades. However, more recently, we are seeing the re-emergence of patterned designs in interior design and we have put together a few tips that make choosing that next patterned design a breeze.

Size matters

Patterns bring life and activity to a room but different sized patterns are suitable to different uses within a room. Larger patterns are more suited to larger objects like furniture and wallpaper, whilst smaller patterns are ideally suited to decorative elements like pillows and cushions.

.

Keep the room balanced

By their nature, patterns and prints naturally draw people’s eye and as such are ideal to add balance to a room where required.

.

Mix it up

We have all been told that we should never mix patterns as this was often counter-productive, confusing the look of a room and making the space visually look far too busy. Well, we are pleased to let you know that this is no longer the case! Mixed patterns often look very effective if they all fall within the same colour palette.
