Picture a Pattern: Part 6

Floral top_fabricWelcome to my final post on patterns! I’ll be finishing off this series of posts by featuring another piece of clothing. This one is a formal top with a black and white floral pattern. This would be the perfect addition to a monochromatic space that could use a pop of pattern. Framing a similar print creates a visual interest and draws the eye upwards, allowing your visitors to take in the entirety of your beautiful space. In addition, this also saves money since you’re using patterns you already have in your closet. It’s great when your decor can do double duty, and even better when you can throw clothing into the mix! I hope you’ve enjoyed my series on framing patterns, and have found lots of inspiration for your own space!

Picture a Pattern: Part 5

Blue swirl_tissue boxIn previous posts I’ve featured patterns from boxes, clothing, and pieces of furniture. Another great object to find patterns? Tissue boxes! It’s probably the last thing you’d think of (I know I did!), but these little squares can provide great patterns and inspiration. On the right is a whimsical blue and white pattern that would look great framed and put in any space. The various shades of blue give this pattern a greater flexibility in matching with colors already in your decorating theme. In addition, the shades of white give it an extra pop that makes the pattern stand out. Tissue boxes come in a wide variety of colors and patterns, and many brands offer seasonal color palates that will give you a myriad of options throughout the year. Remember, by thinking outside the box, you can find surprising new ways to be inspired!

Picture a Pattern: Part 3

Paisley patterned dressIn my third post I’ll be highlighting another source of inspiration for your home decor: clothing! The picture above is a photo of one of my favorite dresses. It features various types of patterns in yellow, black, white, grey, and brown. These colors go great with a neutral color palette! The pops of yellow are the perfect addition to a bedroom, den, or hallway wall. The colors blend perfectly together and contain hues that everyone has in their home. Inspiration can come from many sources, so keep your eyes open for great ideas that can be as close as your own closet!
