Personalizing Your Space with Pattern

You don’t need vibrant colors to make a space stand out.

In fact, we kept things light and neutral in Mary’s home renovation, leaning on patterns to give it a cozy charm. Episode two of Season 3 provides so many practical ideas for designing your space, which Shea goes into detail in this webisode. Here, we’re highlighting the element of pattern for three simple ways you can add visual interest in tonal palettes. Let’s take a look!

No. 1: Draw the gaze upward

So often, the default choice for window treatments is a solid color — and with good reason! But in an otherwise neutral space, opting for a pattern on the drapes (as shown here with this cozy window pane print) brings visual balance and draws the eye upward toward the ceiling.

No. 2: Add texture to tonal palettes

If you’re going for a singular-hued color scheme, try incorporating patterned pieces within the palette to give it dimension. Staying narrow on the range of colors affords you even more room to play with texture for interest.

“In Mary’s bedroom, we decided to dress the bed with layered linens, a little bit of pattern mixing on the textiles, and adding that quilt into the space… it made all of the difference.”

No. 3: Build the look from the ground up

Sometimes it helps to start with the rug or pattern you have in mind, and ground the scene in that statement piece. When the rug carries so much appeal, your furniture can play a more neutral, supporting role.
