Room Decor Ideas: See What Pattern Can Do

Color and pattern often go hand in hand. Not always, but often, pattern can amp up a room’s decor. We recently shared a post about color with our Design Shuffle blog readers, so today we’re doing a follow-up highlighting some of our favorite ways to use pattern as a companion to all sorts of colorful spaces, from pale to bright, indoors and outside.

Living Room Pattern

White rooms are perhaps the easiest ones to bring alive with brilliant colorfully patterned accents. Here, blooms abound, strewn across curtain panels. sofa pillows and underfoot on a fabulous rug.

Wall Pattern

Wallpaper is making a big comeback and what better way to add color and pattern than with awesome wallpapered walls?

Here again, toss pillows are the place for pattern. Just about any bedroom can benefit from pattern on the bed.

Rug Pattern

Color and pattern are delightful underfoot. We love the interaction between the rug and the colors used in the gallery wall.
