Adding Still More Pattern

I love to mix patterns together in a room.  I think it gives a space character and interest.

I got on a cleaning spree the other day and started going through my fabric stash.  I found a piece that I have had for a couple of years and just never used.  I thought it was perfect with all the other patterns in the family room, so of course I had to make another pillow.




When I redid my family room I used some plaid and chevron patterns with the checks. 


I thought this fabric with the Pebbles pattern was a great one to add to my mix.


Works great with the chevron on the sofa and compliments the checks too.


 Pattern always adds so much interest to a room.


I bet I could find even more pattern to use in here.  There are 5 different patterns now.  You can see the subtle pattern I used on the wicker chair makeover here.

Do you like to mix patterns together too?

  25. What a lovely, soothing room. And such a nice mixture of patterns. You are so good at that, unlike most of us. But let me tell you what my favorite piece in your room is.....your round mirror. I love that frame, it is so 'rich-looking' and elegant and a piece not often copied or seen (at least by me!) Thanks for sharing, Vicki in Louisville KY

  32. I really like your mix of patterns and the mix of greens and browns -- so very pretty! I like mixing patterns, but I don't do it so much anymore. I did so much of it back in the early 90's when I had my sewing business. We did some rooms that had as many as ten different patterns, and it looked amazing. I am liking all the chevron that is popping up all over, so I may be adding a bit more pattern......hmmm, just call me indecisive!

  33. As long as you are mixing patterns in the same color family, it is amazing how many you can use in one space. Love the newly added pillow. That cow grain sack is so cute! I'm following you in all those ways ;) Thank you for sharing at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a great week!

    Blessings,
    Deborah
