Why Don’t You…?

… embrace pattern to the max?

In the above photo, there are no less than three classic patterns competing: polka dots, leopard print and a modern cross-stitch interpretation. So why does it work?

By grounding the space with a bold hue of kelly green, the patterns take a backseat to the highly saturated color. And by scattering the same shade throughout the rest of the entryway (in a lamp, stool and coat), the pattern and color are integrated together in a seamless display of decorative fun.

Go on – try the look for yourself and pattern-mix to your heart’s content. I have a feeling you’ll be pleasantly surprised (and certainly amused!)! Happy decorating!
