Mix it Up....

I enjoy mixing patterns.  I think pattern mixing makes things more interesting.  An old- fashion floral suddenly has a new vibrance when paired with a bold stripe.  The same principles apply in mixing patterns, whether you are working with on a room or with an outfit.    Don't be afraid to mix and layer.  Here 8 rules from Suze Geeks Out how how to mix patterns in fashion, the same apply to interior design.  If you want to play it safe start with pillows.  Often times it is that unexpected visual pairing that makes the room so dynamic!  Try it!  I think you will agree!

  4. I love that chair! I've seen people cover the back of a chair different from the front, but I'm really loving covering the arms a different fabric! So cute!
