Choose an inspiration piece.
Have something you love? Use it to pull color into the room.
Try varying the sizes of patterns. Pick a color scheme and find coordinating items with small, medium and large sized patterns. You don't want matchy-matchy, but you do want it to all work together.
Whether it is a color, a fabric, a shape or a finish, having an element that repeats throughout the room is a great way to tie everything together. Here is a great example of just a few pops of bright color can pull the whole room together.
Texture is a big thing for me. I often have lots of things in the same color family, but just layer different textures and finishes.
I love greens and browns and whites. Oh, and a little bit of sparkle. I'm just drawn to this look. All of the vibrant colors are fabulous and I love little pops of them, but at the end of the day, this subdued palette is my aesthetic. When it comes to mixing and matching patterns and color, there are plenty of guidelines to help you out, but I think the most important is that something in it needs to speak to you. It's your home, your space... how do you want it to feel?
It's Time for Springtime!
