Our Five Design Love Languages | No. 02 Pattern on Pattern
An ode to pattern—
—in all of its many wonderful forms. The Studio McGee aesthetic utilizes a muted palette. You won’t find a lot of saturated reds or sunburst yellows in the design of Shea McGee and her design team. What you will find, however, is a whole lot of pattern on pattern, using different shapes and forms to bring visual interest to the room. “Pulling off a plethora of patterns in one space can be tricky, but when it’s done right it makes such a dramatic statement,” explains Shea.
Patterns give energy to a space, a sense of movement, and helps to define the personality of the people which inhabit the home. It can be done by mixing stripes with florals, or layering big, bold florals with a small and delicate print. You can introduce it in curtains, through a throw pillow combination, or in a rug. There’s no end to how you can employ the benefits of pattern in your interior design.
