How to mix patterns in your home with Ever Lasting

vintage feminine bedroom By Ever Lasting Fabric

Mixing patterns can be difficult because it requires a delicate balance to ensure that the overall look is cohesive rather than chaotic. Here are some reasons why mixing patterns can pose challenges:

  1. Clashing Patterns : Certain patterns may clash in terms of scale, color, or design elements, resulting in a visually jarring effect when combined.

  2. Overwhelming Visual Impact : Too many patterns competing for attention can overwhelm the eye and create a busy or chaotic appearance, detracting from the overall aesthetic.

1. Complimenting Colors

When mixing patterns in home decor, ensuring that the colors complement each other is essential for creating a cohesive and visually pleasing space. Here's why:

  1. Harmonious Visual Flow : Complementary colors create a sense of harmony and unity in the room. When patterns share similar or complementary colors, they blend together more seamlessly, resulting in a cohesive visual flow.

  2. Balanced Composition : Colors that complement each other help balance the composition of the room. They provide a sense of equilibrium and prevent any one pattern from dominating the space, creating a more balanced and pleasing aesthetic.

  3. Avoiding Clashing Colors : Mixing patterns with clashing colors can create visual discord and make the space feel chaotic. By choosing patterns with complementary colors, you can avoid clashes and ensure that each pattern enhances the overall look of the room.

2. Neutral Base

Use a Neutral Base : Anchor your pattern mixing with a neutral base, such as a solid-colored sofa or walls. Neutrals provide a calm backdrop that allows the patterns to stand out without overwhelming the space. Choose a cohesive color palette that ties the different patterns together. This could involve selecting a dominant color and incorporating complementary or analogous hues.

3. Layering

Layering blankets in home decor is a stylish and functional way to add warmth, texture, and visual interest to a space. Here's how to effectively layer blankets:

  1. Choose Complementary Textures : Select blankets with different textures to create depth and dimension. For example, you might layer a chunky knit throw over a smooth, woven blanket to add visual contrast.

  2. Consider Color and Pattern : Choose blankets in colors and patterns that complement each other and the overall color scheme of the room. Mixing different patterns, such as stripes, plaids, or geometric prints, can add visual interest without overwhelming the space.

  3. Mix Materials: Mix blankets made from different materials, such as cotton, wool, fleece, or faux fur, to add variety and texture to your decor. Each material will offer a different level of warmth and comfort, making your space feel cozy and inviting.

For those who love to embrace boldness and creativity, the maximalist aesthetic offers endless possibilities for self-expression. Characterized by its eclectic mix of colors, patterns, and textures, maximalism encourages you to let your imagination run wild. When it comes to bedding, don't be afraid to mix and match vibrant hues, bold prints, and luxurious fabrics. Layer on an abundance of throw pillows, blankets, and decorative cushions to create a lush and inviting haven that reflects your unique personality.

Following trends or trying to mimic a particular style might result in a space that feels generic or uninspired. Trusting your instincts allows you to make decisions that feel genuine and authentic to you, creating a home that truly reflects your individuality. Decorating your home is a creative process, and trusting your instincts encourages you to think outside the box and experiment with different ideas. It allows you to express yourself creatively and have fun with your decor choices.
