How to Mix Patterns Like an Interior Designer


Mixing patterns relies on the thoughtful layering of various prints and patterns to create an eye-catching visual landscape. There are a few key rules for mixing patterns like a pro. Scale, color scheme, and symmetry each play an important role in creating a cohesive pattern story.

Scale refers to the size of a pattern. To avoid competing patterns, include a mix of pattern scales. For example, pair a small stripe with a large damask print to create drama without overpowering the look. A color scheme is also essential to creating cohesion between contrasting prints. Look for prints in a complementary color palette to keep the design consistent. Finally, strike a balance in the design by distributing the patterns evenly throughout the space.
