When it comes to interior design, colors and textures are everything! Because there are so many different prints and patterns to choose from, we know that finding what works can sometimes be more frustrating than fun. So, what are the tricks of picking the perfect pattern for your space? Whether you choose stripe, floral, houndstooth, buffalo check, animal print, or motif, it's ultimately up to you and your style.
To help you feel less stressed, we decided to share some of our favorite ways to incorporate prints and patterns that will keep your next design project looking fresh and feeling balanced!
One of the more trendy patterns out there right now is the classic buffalo check, and we can see why! This darling pattern is the perfect accent to any room, and it pairs well with other prints too. It can obviously be found in a variety of colors, but we are really loving the neutrality of the black and white version with these fun bright pink floral pillows.
Stripes are one pattern we can guarantee will never go out of style! Too many stripes can overwhelm a space, so we suggest using them in moderation. This sweet and cozy daybed with white linens and throw pillows in various stripe sizes is the perfect combination in our book. And not to mention, the coordinating striped rug really brings it all together!
Florals are always a favorite, and whether you choose floral bedding, artwork, drapes, or throw pillows, you can't go wrong! Big and bold floral prints are typically better suited for large spaces, and smaller, more delicate patterns for small spaces. However, if you are looking to make a statement, bring in the large print no matter what size space it's going in!
Houndstooth always seems to give off a more traditional vibe and is definitely another classic print, but one that can be used in a variety of ways. The scale of the pattern can be small or large, and both are perfect when used for accent pieces like this gorgeous chair. Keep in mind that if you are looking for a more neutral tone, stick to the smaller scale print. If you are looking for bright and beautiful, try a larger scale print.
Finally, if you are feeling adventurous, try mixing your favorite patterns! This room is bright and bold, and the perfect example of total balance when it comes to mixing patterns. Pairing a floral chair and drapes with, geometric walls and animal print may sound like a disaster, but it looks stunning together when coordinating or complimentary colors are used.
