Pattern mixing is an interior design technique that can bring life, vibrancy, and personality to your living spaces. When done right, it can transform your home into a visually captivating haven.
In this blog post, we'll explore practical tips on how to infuse your home with our signature style.
1. Start with Neutral Foundations:
Begin your pattern mixing with a neutral foundation. This will provide a blank backdrop and allow the patterns to shine without overwhelming the space. Rachel Elizabeth Interiors often employs neutral tones like soft greys, warm beige, or creamy whites for walls and larger pieces of furniture. These neutrals act as the perfect canvas for the pattern magic to unfold.
2. Vary Scale and Texture:
Play with different pattern sizes, combining larger motifs with smaller ones to achieve visual interest. Additionally, incorporate various textures, such as velvets, linens, and woven fabrics, to add depth and tactility to your design.
3. Incorporate a Statement Pattern:
Incorporate a statement pattern that serves as the focal point of the room. This could be a bold floral wallpaper, an intricate Persian rug, or a striking geometric print on an accent chair. The statement pattern sets the tone for the space and acts as an anchor, guiding the selection of complementary patterns.

4. Stick to a Harmonious Colour Palette:
When blending patterns, stick to a consistent colour scheme that appears throughout the space. I suggest selecting three to four primary colours and incorporating shades, tints, and tones of those hues in the patterns to establish a cohesive visual flow.
Embrace the beauty of pattern mixing and embark on a journey that will redefine the way you experience your living spaces. Happy decorating!
