Patterned décor is becoming more popular, and more homeowners are becoming interested in embracing more unique options for their homes. That said, it’s not always easy to know where to start with patterns. Read on to get a few ideas and then check out some of the patterned curtains available from Half Price Drapes.
Choose bold graphics and geometric options
One idea is to start with big graphics and geometric options. Then add whatever you’re interested in pattern wise. For example, you can use a pattern on a large surface, like a rug or your wallpaper, and then stick to solids for other options.
You don’t have to commit to patterns
If you want bold colors and big patterns, but you’re not sure that you’ll really adjust to decorating your home with them, then there’s a simple answer: Start with non-permanent options. For example, you could get some affordable throw pillows for the couch, or find a bold bedspread for the bedroom. After a few weeks, you can decide how you like living among a bold pattern and make future plans accordingly.
If you want to mix several patterns, then we recommend you also work to mix textures. For example, you could get some high-end curtains, like satin, silk, or velvet, and use that with some rich textures on your couch, such as leather. When you mix textures, colors, and patterns, it all starts to feel purposeful and look incredible.
Bring in natural patterns
There are billions of patterns in nature, and bringing them into your décor is an option that brings a fresh perspective to your décor. You may want something like Kelly green wallpaper, or wood-paneled, patterned wainscoting. Perhaps you could bring in vibrant patterns via flowers or plants that are native to your particular area.
Start with a neutral base
If you’re still not sure that you can handle the decorating chaos that patterns can bring into your home, then consider starting with a neutral base and adding just one patterned piece. For example, you may have a gray couch with a single patterned pillow, or a bedroom that has solid colored rugs, throw pillows, and bedding, but curtains with patterns
