Moon Over Marrakech: Pattern Mixing

This palette is meant to make a statement of exuberance. Be bold in mixing patterns and keep scale in mind. In this bedroom, pink-and-white gingham and a whimsical floral and animal-figure print start the mix as the large-scale patterns. The damask-print comforter and lattice-motif bolster pillow play the role of medium-scale patterns, and the chevron throw and striped bed skirt finish the mix as small-scale patterns. Even though these prints aren't tiny, they are small in relation to the other patterns. If they were extra small, they might have been lost in the shuffle. Patterns that are to scale in relation to each other will come together and make a room sing.
