How to effortlessly mix prints in your home
Patterns can be pretty intimidating to build into a room; However, if done correctly, they can effortlessly bring a room to life. With a little insider knowledge, you can begin to integrate layers of patterns like a pro. The key is understanding the principles of ornamentation with a pattern, once you start the magic will begin. We’ve put together the rules that you should know to effortlessly mix and match your home and help you along the way.
Remember the basics
The first rule that you should always remember is to remember the basics. Every time you integrate a pattern into a room, you want solid colors from the color wheel. The solid hues center the patterns and allow them to make their own statement. Without the spot colors you would simply have a set of patterns without distinction.
Geometric patterns are great
Do not be afraid of geometric patterns. Although they can be intimidating, geometric patterns give a monochrome color palette a boost. They brighten the simplicity of every area in the house, including smaller spaces. The larger than life pressure gives a monochrome room the ability to come back to life.
Brighten a uniform look
We love the attraction of a unified look; However, to create a seamless, unified effect, you’ll want to add patterns in similar hues. You can combine several different patterns or styles, but make sure the same color scheme is maintained throughout the room.
Stay with a pattern
If you are thinking about a particular pattern idea, we recommend sticking to this one pattern instead of building in multiple patterns. In this way, this pattern will be in the foreground. Keep the rest of the room with simple colors and baselines.
Keep your biggest pattern on the floor
A rule of thumb that you should remember is that your largest pattern should normally be used as part of your floor. Covering your floor with a large pattern works well with extra accent pillows that are either a similar color or a similar pattern. This brings a seamless togetherness in the area.
Bring the background picture
This really is not a better way to put a pattern in one area and then add a bold wallpaper. It brings the room back to life and adds that strong background element. Whether you use a colorful background image or choose a monotone option, it will produce the same effect regardless of it.
Combine dramatic patterns with simple prints
Just because you’re using a pattern does not mean you can not make prints. The key is working with patterns that appear in dark, rich hues and combine them with other similar colors. This feature gives the room a refined feel and yet is feminine and classic.
Combine multiple patterns ONLY in an open floor plan
If you love patterns as much as we do, you can combine several different patterns to create a beautiful, beautiful space. Keep them simple, but keep them bright so you get a consistent look, even if they contain many different patterns. Do not limit yourself to 2-3 patterns if you add 5 or more.
Patterned cushions for one edge
Patterned cushions add an easy way to integrate patterns into a space that looks like he does not need it. Pair with simple colors or even other simple patterns for that minimalist appeal that makes absolute sense in the room.
Polka dot prints
In case of doubt, pay attention to a dot pattern. Polka dots bring a whimsical feeling exactly where you need it. We love the idea of using a polka dot pattern that consumes the entire space, so that it occupies most of the space and becomes the main focus of the room.
