Creating an interesting room begins with mixing patterns. Whether your room is contemporary or traditional, full of color or monochromatic, you can spice it up! New to this? Start with a specific color for accents and mix size and scale of patterns. Find a stripe fabric for a chair, and pair a nature inspired print with a geometric print for pillows.


Looking for something more adventurous? Try damask wallpaper or a patterned sofa. Create a room that is uniquely you!

Need some inspiration?

Try some fresh greens for a funky contemporary twist.


Or some rich reds for a luxurious traditional feel.


Mixing patterns can be fun and creative. A room with a neutral base can be completely transformed with pattern accents! Don’t forget that textures can be patterns, too. Using textures and solids in contrast, helps to emphasize patterns.

Bring all these elements together with accessories to finish the look. Pops of color or texture keeps it interesting. Your friends will start asking you for tips!
