Design Tip No. 2: Blending bold patterns
Using a cohesive, minimal color palette allows you to blend patterns in your space without making it feel too busy. In this dining room, we incorporated a bold wallpaper print and an abstract art piece. However, because we used a calming, neutral color palette, the patterns still work together to create synergy.
You can try mixing patterns in your home with smaller pieces, too. We even like to apply the concept of following a cohesive color motif when we put together pillow combinations!

Design Tip No. 3: Finding a unifying element in open-concept spaces
Open-concept homes bring a design challenge to unify each space so that distinct areas are created while each element still feels cohesive. Finding a unifying element through your color palette, style, or finishes, allows the look to blend together seamlessly.
A unifying element can be anything from your paint color, to your wall treatment style, to your light fixture metal. When you walk into this home, you see both of these spaces open up across from each other, so we wanted to make sure that the rooms flowed together.
Although we mixed different styles in these rooms, we kept a unifying element of a minimal, tonal palette that allowed them to speak to each other.
In your space, you can try this concept through something as simple as styling your built-ins! Identifying a similar element to incorporate throughout each shelf or vignette will help you create a look that flows.
