Pattern … meet Texture
Patterns can direct your eye to a focal point, create a path, add some color or just plain be amazing. Here are a few examples of things I’ve recently found online that inspired a new room design that I will post in a few weeks. I’ve also posted a few of my very own projects in here.
A Nouveau door uses architecture to create a bold and beautiful pattern in an entry way
Polka dots, squares and diamonds, Oh my! A super cute room
for 4 adorable little girls.
A beautiful black and white zig zag fabric brings drama to an antique set of Winged chairs
Large stenciled walls are easy to do and are great to frame art and give some personality to the space.
White built-ins set the stage for the gold and gray striped cushions, and funky patterned pillows breathing life and a sense of whimsy into this space.
Philippe Starck Chair for Driade. Nuff said.
This hounds-tooth fabric unites a set of mismatched chairs. Recycled, reused, redefined.
Herringbone colorful wall tiles add an entirely new dimension into an all white bathroom.
Basket weave flooring using 12x24 tiles in charcoal and pewter with a 6x6 in white.
There are a million different ways of playing with pattern. But the result will always add a sort of texture to the space, no matter where it’s applied. It’s an effective tool for expressing yourself and personalizing your space. The best news, is that it doesn’t have to be expensive.
