Pattern Mixing

Don't be afraid to mix florals, stripes, ikats, and zig zags in your home.  More and more people are becoming their own interior decorators and creating an eclectic global feel in their place.


A good mix of pattern has multiple scales or sizes.  It is best to have small, medium, and large-scale patterns.  It is usually best to tie the patterns with a particular color theme to make it all tie together.  Break up the patterns with some solids to give the eye a rest in the room. Textured solids are always a great choice.

Stores like Anthropologie are known for mixing pattern in their apparel as well as their home decor. Apparel Designers like Marc Jacobs and Anna Sui have these looks in their Fall collections.  Feel free to add these ideas in your everyday life.
