You’re not alone, mixing home decor fabric patterns can be a stumbling block or just too complicated to think about.

First, The secret to mixing home decor fabric patterns is all about scale.
Simple … think small, medium, large. A large-scale headboard fabric is balanced with the medium-scale coverlet. Additional accessories such as the striped rug, footstools, and fun novelty pillows add yet another layer of pattern. But notice how the footstool fabric, blue decorative pillow, and the area rug almost read as solids? Then the artful addition of novelty print pillows in a large-scale break up all the patterns.
The second key, developing a cohesive color palette.
Staying within the color palette by repeating those colors will help the eye to make sense of the prints.
And remember, prints can be subtle too. This red white & blue/gray color palette is supported by the bedding, decorative pillows, and built-in cushion.
Finally, the third tip is to support your prints with solids.
The use of solids helps to ground the design, giving your eye a place to rest.
