How to Mix Stripes with Patterns

Almost every apartment that I have lived in, I’ve rocked striped walls. I just love the look, style, vibe – all of it. While stripes are a cool accent, it’s not always easy to mix patterna with with this clean lines of stripes. I wanted to share a few tips for making this work in your home. Check them out below.

1) Use complementary colors. The patterns – while different – will naturally feel cohesive.

2) Mix multiple patterns but keep only one with tons of styles. All of the other patterns should be just two colors.

3) Consider scale. You can mix a ton of different patterns that stay close in size.

And, one more tip, have fun! Your home is your refuge and mixing patterns with stripes is a fantastic way to add your personality into the design of your home.

    Just a fast hello and also to thank you for discussing your ideas on this page. I wound up in your blog right after researching physical fitness connected issues on Yahoo… guess I lost track of what I had been performing! Anyway I’ll be back as soon as once more inside the potential to check out your blogposts down the road. Thanks!
