I'm often asked about patterns and how to utilize them. My response? "I don't know!" Not because I don't have an opinion but because this is very subjective, and, well, "you do you!" But, what I can sincerely recommend is not to overplay florals. Just one or in some cases two will do. If you prefer floral patterns, let that pattern be the showstopper - the bolster on your bed or the largest pillow on your couch. Then tone down the pattern with a solid or a simple stripe. If you prefer neutrals or simple patterns, consider adding a floral as a small lumbar for interest.
But what about adding multiple florals together? This is by no means a bad thing to do, but you have to be careful. When mixing florals, make sure the tones match. You don't want a bright red flower next to a petite purple floral pattern. I also recommend not pairing the same scale or style pattern together. For instance, if you have a large, bold floral pattern, consider adding a smaller scale and lighter floral. Another example would be not pairing block printed floral patterns together.
Speaking of tones... if you prefer a more neutral, calmer style, then keep colors in the same family. Stick with different shades of blue or mix blues with some greens or purples. If you want to make a bold statement, then feel free go for complimentary colors.
Florals can be intimidating, but they don't have to be. These patterns should be a fun way to add dimension to your space. If you ever need help selecting just the right pattern, feel free to message me
