Consistency Counts

One key to creating eye flow is consistency. When items from one space relate to those in another, your brain draws a connection, allowing for a smooth visual transition. There are several ways to accomplish this in your design.

Stick to Your Style

Make sure the styles of your pieces are similar and make sense in the context of the room. For instance, if your style is contemporary, don't use heavy, traditional pieces in a neighboring room.

Follow the Pattern

Repeating a pattern creates visual harmony, but don't feel like you have to stick to just one. It's perfectly acceptable (and encouraged) to blend abstract and structured prints. Just be sure to mix in enough solid pieces to help avoid a clash fest.
