Mixing patterns to create beauty, elegance and style!

There are a few rules to follow when mixing patterns in your drapery designs:

  • Mix patterns that compliment one another, not fight each other. Two large patters will look odd together, instead mix smaller patterns with the large ones for  harmony. Take a look below, and see how the stripes with the large botanical pattern make a perfect match for this Naperville home.

  • When mixing patterns, one design element must tie the two together, such as colors, and forms. The valance in the picture below shows how the color of the fabric inserted into the pleats and buttons is a perfect color match with the checks used in body of the valance.

  • At most mix three patterns, because adding too many might be overwhelming, and the draperies will loose their elegance. In the picture below a check fabric with the toil and one solid fabric, made the drapes for this breakfast nook outstanding.

  • Vary the textures, for interest. In the picture below, a chenille was mixed with silk, with a fringe applied between the two. Please visit our Exciting windows website for more ideas gailaniassoc

  1. I have the same colour of wall as on the first photo. But, honestly, I`m not sure, that botanical pattern fits to it.
