Who's afraid of mixing patterns? Not these armchairs, with their leopard print cushions, monogrammed pillows and cherry red piping. Keeping all the prints in the same black, white and red color family makes the wild combos work.
A hint of the red wall peeks over this close-up view of neutral bedding with floral, striped and plaid patterns. A white throw pillow with an applique of red and salmon floral beading accents the bedding while blending perfectly with the wall color.
Two panels covered in colorful floral fabric create the headboard for this bed. Each panel has a mounted light overhead attached to the frame. Layered pillows continue adding color and pattern. Two green pillows match the green bedspread, followed by two red accent pillows, one with a lobster, and a black and white patterned pillow finishes the bed.
White molding on the walls allows the sunny yellow wall color to pop in this cozy sitting area. Upholstered cream armchairs and sofa are adorned with patterned red accent pillows, adding contrast to the yellow space. A traditional wood armchair upholstered in a red-and-yellow striped fabric unifies the room's color palette. Traditional dark-stained wood furnishings add country charm to this space.
A gorgeous wall tapestry featuring fuchsia and burgundy flowers sets a colorful backdrop for the mix of patterns and rich hues in this eclectic living room. A mustard yellow sofa is decorated with a collection of throw pillows. A pair of chairs with deep red cushions surround a clear coffee table over the faded rug.
The key to mixing mismatched patterns? Maintain the same color palette throughout the pieces, as demonstrated in this chic bedroom. From the graphic valance, to the striped pillows and checked ottomans, a red, white and blue palette is intact.
The simplest way to make sure multiple patterns work well together is to choose one or two unifying colors to repeat in each element. Here, red and black appear in the plaid throw pillow, gingham ribbon, and striped comforter.
This lively guest room pairs patterned red pillows and cushioned furniture with a soft yellow color palette to create a beautiful transitional style. A comfy daybed sits at the foot of the bed beneath the large window, and is flanked between two matching closets with classic white doors.
A large blue velvet sectional and a pair of modern red chairs face in toward a glass coffee table over a traditional patterned area rug. A mix of bold colored and polka dot throw pillows decorate the sofa. A second seating area designed under the large window uses a a tufted leather sofa and matching armchair. A similar mix of throw pillows is used tying the two spaces together. A pair of cow hide fabric chairs and a mounted half-table add to the eclectic vibe of the design.
The ottoman catches the eye in this stylish contemporary sitting room set up. The fabric gives a unique illusion of stitching, seems and a handle. The rest of the elements blend together with a more natural design. The neutral chairs are padded with patterned yellow pillows that draw from the yellow used in the colorful rug.
