PATTERNS TO INCORPORATE INTO YOUR HOME DECOR

I think it’s quite easy to shy away from bold patterns when we are decorating our home. What colour, style, how many different patterns is safe to choose? So many logisitcs..but to be honest I don’t think it really matters. You can choose a few different ways to add pattern to your home. You can go for a bright detailed wallpaper, different patterned textiles, bright artwork or furnishings. All blend all of them together. Hey why not!

Like this room. Having plain white on the walls, makes the colour in the patterns and texture really pop. And just look at the variety of different patterns, which are all being pulled together with certain colours. You have the deep blue, red and yellow being very dominant colours in this scheme. But it works, look how cosy this room looks..i’m completely in love with it.

So I think I need this wall paper…this is a great way to incorporate pattern into your home if you’re a bit shy, having just a panel like this makes a statement but wont over do it if you’re a bit nervous..god I love this print!

Geometric is still on trend, and why just keep pattern decor for your living room? Spruce up your bathroom or your kitchen with tiles like this. Add a pop of colour and your good to go.

 

If fancy wall paper or tiles aren’t in your budget, and soft furnishings are already pretty pricey, why not create some of your own patterns? Paint straight onto fabric to make cushion covers, upcycle furniture or go bold and make a stencil to paint your wall or floors..sit down grab some pens and try out a few different patterns and shapes. Here are some simple ones for inspiration.

This could make an awesome print on a wall or even on flooring like cement. To make it simpler just try doing a diamond shape and adding a pattern in the middle afterwards freestyle.
