How to use patterns confidently - 5 tips

  1. Find a pattern that makes you feel calm and in harmony, ideally from nature as those stand the test of time. 

  2. Start with changeable textiles, such as bed linen or decorative cushions. 

  3. Stick to a cooler colour scheme, or combine rich patterns with a subdued base colour.

  4. Mix patterned pillowcases with neutral duvet covers or add patterned bed linen to bedspreads and pillows in more timeless tones.

  5. Finally, do not be afraid to blend different textures and materials. This will add vitality and energy.
