Mixing patterns can feel daunting so, here are a few things to keep in mind when trying to create that perfect mix in your home or in your wardrobe.
Opposites really do attract:
Try mixing a floral/curved pattern with a geometric/straight line pattern. Or a really large print with a very small print. Find colors that can tie the whole look together.
Choose one color:
If you’re intimidated by mixing color and pattern just stick to one color and find a variety of patterns to mix.
Choosing the same color palette or neutrals almost guarantees what you pair together will work.
Large and small neutral prints.
Our RV in particular is a huge blend of patterns. For the most part I consider each of these neutrals and because they are all different sized patterns it works. A small intricate pattern for the wall, a large organic pattern for the bench fabric and ceiling plus a pop of blue fabric in a medium sized print.
Try these tips and see if it helps you create that wild look you’ve been dreaming of. Over time mixing and matching gets easier, just have fun!
