Pattern on pattern is admittedly one of the trickier looks to master. It takes an in depth knowledge of design fundamentals to pull off. If you're debating giving this bold trend a shot, consider these tips before taking the plunge.
Regardless of your personal taste, it is important to remember the golden ratio, which aims to keep colours in proportion. In this intricate living room, for instance, the dominant palette is made up of black and raspberry. A canary yellow and jewel-toned purple deepen the mix, while turquoise accents add unexpected pops to complete the look. By limiting the scheme to five colours, the vibrant patterns avoid commanding attention away from the rest of the scheme.
Another alternative is experimenting with existing textures to create new patterns. In this handsome library, the striped wallpaper creates an entirely different effect when it is applied to both the walls and ceiling. The results are bold and totally unique.
