This photo, taken from Elle, shows a bold use of patterns in a room.  Some love this look and others would be very uncomfortable in this room.  I call this phenomenom “Understanding Your Pattern Tolerance”.  Everyone is different.  But even those with low pattern tolerance can enjoy adding more to a room if it is done properly.  Most people need the help of a professional to really pull off a heavily patterned room, so that it is tasteful and not tacky.

But here is a very simple formula that you can use anytime. When mixing patterns in a room, the following can all be used together successfully – a large scale print, a small scale print, a stripe, a geometric, and a solid.  Make sure they are all in the same colorway and you will be successful.

Happy decorating!
