If you’re beginning to think Santa’s elves have names like frazzled and tuckered, the holiday hubbub may be taking its toll on you. And as much as we love this time of year, we know just how stressful it can be. Here are some great ideas to help you (and your holiday guests) escape to peace at the day’s end.
You might think introducing patterns would make a space feel busier, but they actually play an important role in defining your room’s style in a way that solids alone can’t. With the right prints and proportions, patterns can help you create a harmonious retreat.
1. Cozy Up to Casual
A large-scale print is ideal for a broad area, such as a rug or comforter. Although this rug is contemporary, its plaid pattern makes a great companion to casual furniture.
2. Take On Transitional
As a cross between contemporary and traditional, you have a lot of options when it comes to transitional patterns. We love the impact of an oversized, classic-inspired motif.
3. Get With Contemporary
Abstract curves and geometric prints are very modern, and they’re a great place to draw inspiration for your room’s accessories.
4. Stay True to Traditional
Traditional patterns tend to fall on the intricate side. Choosing a floral print adds a soft, feminine touch while keeping time to the character of this room's classic style.
