We’re noticing a pattern. Literally. Almost every time we see lust-worthy interior design photos (check out some of our favorites on our Pinterest!), you can almost guarantee an eclectic blend of prints in jazzy colorways and unique styles. Straight from the editor’s desk, founder Wendy Estes drops in to share her industry insight on one of the trickiest tactics in interior design: mixing prints.

Mix your prints effortlessly by choosing a theme that represents you. This nautical mix would be the perfect pairing for a maritime lover or to bring your vacation spot home with you. Balance a perfect mix with stripes in coordinating colors with nautical-themed patterns and designs that share similar hues for foolproof style.

If you’re designing a room by color, start with a bold statement-making piece in a fun print or bright shade and use it as a focal point for the rest of the space. For example, this bold Sugarboo Designs art print’s abstract print lends fanciful flair with blue, green, yellow, and pink—the perfect palette for inspiring the rest of your space.

Here’s where your favorite color makes its debut. Insert your personality with a soothing neutral like gray, black, or tan and go bolder with patterns. Never fear mixing stripes with abstract prints and dimensional patterns—each item will coordinate by color in their own unique way. Five to ten shades of gray? Totally encouraged!

What’s your style? French country? Art deco? Globally-inspired bohemian? Chinoiserie chic?

Offer up your personality by mingling statement-making prints by style for lighthearted appeal. Think of leopard print as a neutral or pick unexpected pieces in two-tones instead of a print with many differentiating colors. Go daring or keep it simple–after all, the beauty of this decorating style is that it’s all about you!
