A bright pink pillow pops against the navy blue and white color palette of this eclectic bedroom. Designer Brian Patrick Flynn mixes traditional fabrics, like the floral duvet cover, with contemporary ones, like the graphic-patterned pillows.
Blue and green toile prints combine with chevron pattern headboard in this eclectic boy's bedroom. A small basketball hoop is mounted to the wall, and a basket of balls sits by the bed for playing before bedtime.
Slate gray walls set the scene for this eclectic living room. Black-and-white armchairs add pattern and texture to the neutral sofa and sleek white coffee table. Sliding glass doors bring in natural light, while a graphic-printed rug adds style underfoot.
The homeowners wanted a place where they could entertain and that was both comfortable and practical. The natural raw wood coffee table centers the living room, adding unique character to the space. Sleek furniture and throw pillows in varying patterns bring vibrancy to the room.
A pale wood rustic dining table is surrounded by a variety of seating, from the Greek key banquette and sleek wood chairs to the black-and-white striped head chairs.

This soothing guest bedroom features a queen size bed with organic bedding and a headboard that is slanted to make it more comfortable to read at night. Mixed patterns in a gray and white color scheme with a pop of red add depth to the space.
Tall ceilings, a light color palette and French doors give this girl's room a fresh, spacious look. Light blue trim frames the doors and windows, while a deeper shade of blue pops in the patterned bedding. A red throw pillow complements the red in the artwork mounted above, and fuzzy stools bring a fun texture to the room.
A mint and gray floral wallpaper is the backdrop for this pretty, feminine bedroom. Soft hues allow several patterns to blend rather than clash, and the luxe sheen of the gray bedding adds even more visual impact.
Pattern mixing is a designer's trick for bringing motion and depth into a space. From the overscaled, lattice-like shape of the FLOR tiles to the diamond stripes of the duvet cover to the geometric print of the throw pillows, pattern is used to draw the eye up from the ground, onto the bed and up to the abstract art.
Solid colors in the bed linens and curtains are a good balance for the patterned wallpaper in this bedroom. Vintage touches, including a typewriter and old table, work with the contemporary pieces as well.
An Eclectic Bedroom With Blue Walls and Mix and Matched Patterns
Complete your small space by mixing patterns. In this bedroom, Ikat print curtains pair well with a tribal influenced mirror that hangs above the bed. Use throw pillows to your advantage, and add visual interest by mixing similarly colored pillows that have interesting patterns. The chevron pillows here are set off by a nostalgic, knitted throw in the middle. Unify the space by matching a muted blue wall color with quilted bed linens to add texture, but keep the pops of color from overpowering the room.
A traditional rug and traditional artwork become whimsical when placed in a sleek, modern master bedroom with mostly modern furniture and accents. A large window runs the length of one wall, and draw draperies block the light for a restful night's sleep.
