From My Home to Yours: Pattern

Recently, I participated in a Summer Tour of Homes with some truly fabulous home decor bloggers. It was a rewarding experience because it made me clean my house and it allowed me to see my place as a whole rather than as individual rooms. When we decorate our homes, we want each room to look great, yet it’s so important that it all work together as well. This doesn’t mean that things need to match, but styles and colors should work together harmoniously.

I’ve learned over the years that my house tends to look best with more neutral colors on the wall. I’ve embraced this fact and have found so many beautiful neutral colors that allow the architecture and details to take center stage. However, as you may know, I love color, so painting gray walls is often difficult.

This is where color and pattern come in. Take my living room, for example. While the walls and furnishings are mostly neutral, I’ve made the space come alive with bold color and pattern. And although there are a lot of different patterns, they play together nicely against the neutral background. Mixing patterns also works for me because it’s an excuse to buy unique home accessories, something I love to do.

Today, I’m sharing a few of my favorites both from the living room and other areas in my home. I hope these examples inspire you to try some fun and interesting patterns in your space.
