Floral Patterned Wallpaper and Blue and Green Argyle Floor in Dining Room
This colorful dining room elegantly blends patterns to create a sweet, feminine space. The blue and green argyle floor that flows in from the kitchen complements the floral patterned wallpaper. The distressed, green farmhouse table and the pink cushions to accent tie the whole space together.
This girl's bedroom puts solid color on the ceiling—a move that cozies up the space—and a fresh, graphic print on the walls. A window seat is a sweet spot to curl up, with the added advantage of two large drawers for storage!
Gray, Pink and Yellow Cottage Master Bedroom with Fireplace
Pastel details contrast with the wood elements in this master bedroom remodel. The printed, yellow wallpaper creates an accent wall in this cottage-style bedroom, acting as a cheerful backdrop for the pink and gray aspects of the room. Crisp, neutral bedding along with the clean lines of the neutral headboard anchor the bedroom's largest furniture piece and mirrors the neutral fireplace. A splash of bold color is added to the decor with the use of pink throw pillows, a nightstand and printed ottoman. A wooden table and mantel act as a base for decorative pieces and soft, pastels colors in the chair and nightstand lamp elaborate on the room's pastel ambiance. A distinct, natural lighting fixture adds a rustic element to the room.
Many fabric companies have made the pattern-mixing process easier for you by creating what they call companion fabrics, Jayne says. "They've created two, three and four patterns all designed to exist harmoniously in one room. All you have to do is choose a color palette you like, and the patterns are already coordinated for you." This may give you the confidence you need to mix up more on your own. Bedroom design by Phyllis Harbinger

Shades of Pink in this Bathroom Make the Space Pop
In this bathroom, the different hues of pink make the space pop. The chandelier is made from pale pink milk glass, while bolder colors of pink make up the rug.

Pink Bedspread with Blue Accents in Colorful Bedroom

Pattern Mixing in a Colorful, Cottage Master Bedroom
Patterns are harmoniously woven together to create a colorful master bedroom design. The key to adding different patterns to a room is to choose different prints and colors. A striped nightstand contrasts with the interlocking scroll design on the yellow wallpaper and ties the pink of the ottoman with the pink tweed pillows. A soft, pattern in the gray-and-white window treatments parallel the colors of the bedding and acts as a backdrop for the pale, blue armchair.
A pink and white teepee provides a fun escape for a little girl living in this cottage-style bedroom. A bird cage made into a lamp hangs from the ceiling and floral art is displayed in glass patio doors.
This sweet bedroom is a dream for a little girl who loves to play and read. Pale pink walls, a woven rug and a chalk-painted bed add loads of charm. Roman shades were fashioned from Pottery Barn drapes so all the window treatments would match. Hand-me-down baby blankets were repurposed as throw pillows for the pint-sized window seat.
