Start with a cohesive color Scheme
Choose a color palette that complements your patterns and creates a sense of harmony. Stick to a few dominant colors and use them consistently across different patterns to tie the room together.
Mixing patterns of different scales adds visual interest and prevents the space from feeling overwhelming. Combine large-scale patterns with smaller ones to create balance and depth in the room.
BALANCE BUSY PATTERNS WITH A SOLID
To avoid a cluttered look, offset busy patterns with solid-colored elements. This can be done through solid-colored furniture, pillows, or curtains. These solids act as visual resting points and help create a sense of order.
Introduce a common motif or design element that appears in multiple patterns. It could be a similar shape, texture, or style. This unifying element ties the patterns together and creates a cohesive look.
Mix patterns that have different textures or materials to add dimension to your space. Combining smooth, rough, shiny, or matte surfaces can create an interesting visual and tactile experience, enhancing the overall appeal of the room.
EXPERIMENT WITH TEXTURE AND MATERIAL
Remember, these tips serve as guidelines, and there's always room for creativity and personalization when it comes to mixing patterns in interior design.
