Decorating with Pattern

Normally when it comes to styling up interiors, people often refuse to decorate their places with large-scale pattern. But some can be overbearing, particularly those that incorporate three or four different colors, such as chintz. However, the top secret to successfully incorporating large-scale pattern or small-scale designs into a scheme relies on the pattern, color andscale of other elements in the room such as other fabrics and wallpapers and its overall style.

# Florals

You may use floral pattern to provide a splash of colors against a neutral backdrop, or just simply make sure that the dominant color works with others in the scheme. Don’t be afraid to mix styles — far more important than the style is the color!

# Stripes and Checks

The appeal of stripes and checks is that you can mix them well with florals, particularly when in combination with plain colors. Their simplicity also means that they work equally well in more contemporary schemes.

# Geometrics

Geometrics have a somewhat more discreet, luxurious feel, thanks to the exciting range of new textures and colors. While they are useful for creating a retro look, they combine equally well with a variety of different styles, from classic to contemporary.

# Pictorial

Perhaps the best-known pictorial pattern is Toile de Jouy. There are a variety of other pictorial fabrics, ranging from those based on hunting scenes to architectural prints. Whichever style you choose, it is likely to create a soft, feminine feel with exception of those in a bolder modern pictorial style that create something more quirky and contemporary. Once again, the most important element is color rather than style.

# Mixing Patterns

This is often regarded as the most difficult task that faces anyone planning a home decorating project. The most popular way to mix pattern is by combining a plain and patterned fabric on the same chair, sofa or curtain. Not only does this help achieve a quirky feet but it also allows you to incorporate more expensive fabrics that you might not otherwise have been able to afford. Similarly, just one wall hung with a patterned wallpaper with others painted a complementary color allows you to use bold pattern without it becoming overbearing.
