Pattern mixing, intimidating or exciting?

Hello lovelies! Did this week fly by for you also? We can't believe January is almost over, though this is definitely not a complaint, it's been a very productive month for our designers, what a great way to start the year off correctly right?

Speaking of 2017, did you know mixing patterns is on trend in a big way? Here at By Design Interiors, we've never shied away from a good design challenge, and many of our clients have given us the opportunities to get real creative with their spaces, as you can see below in the gallery.

Here are a few basic rules when it comes to pattern mixing:

  1. One bold pattern at a time: stay within similar color tone as not to overwhelm
  2. Scale them correctly: mix bold patterns with smaller, tighter patterns
  3. Work with solids to soften down the space
  4. Go with similar patterns if you are not sure where to start
  5. Work with negative (white/blank) space

Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from
an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog?
I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
I'm thinking about making my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions?

Appreciate it

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence
on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving
us something enlightening to read?

Do you mind if I quote a few of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back
to your webpage? My blog is in the exact same niche as yours and my
users would genuinely benefit from a lot of the
information you present here. Please let me know if this okay with you.
Many thanks!
