8 Bohemian Rooms That Mix Patterns the Right Way

Pattern mixing is tricky when it comes to an outfit, let alone a home. You have to understand color, scale, and texture to really make it work. Most designers will tell you to start small with printed accents like pillows and table linens and then work your way up to larger pieces of furniture and rugs. And definitely keep some neutrals in the mix, so it doesn’t feel like you’re living in some psychedelic pattern on pattern on pattern place—unless that’s the look you are going for.

There’s something delightfully bohemian about a room filled with multiple patterns all working together to create a cohesive look. And one thing’s for sure: There are many house tours on this site where the homeowners or renters have a solid pattern game going on. The best way to master the mix is to learn from those who came before you. So let’s go to pattern school.

This Trend Will Bring Teddy Bear-Level Coziness to Your Home

Consider faux shearling-style furniture and accessories the athleisure of the home design world. Because there’s nothing cozier and more comfortable than these super soft, knubby materials that are basically meant to mimic a sheep’s fleece. You’ve probably worn these trends before, so why not deck your place out in it too? These days, it’s not a difficult thing to do. I mean, just look at the amazing sofa above by Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent for Living Spaces. I’d say the wide availability of shearling-style everything has grown out of our obsession with hygge and all things cozy. Even Gwyneth Paltrow had a now-sold-out shearling chair in her goop x CB2 collection.

5 Ways to Make Your Mid-Century Modern Furniture Feel Cool Again

Are you kind of over mid-century modern design? Do you roll your eyes whenever you spot a knock-off Eames dining chair or faux Saarinen tulip table? Do you look at your MCM couch with a tinge of disdain, wishing you could redesign your space?

It’s okay, you’re not alone.

If I’m being totally honest, I too am tired of the MCM madness. Don’t get me wrong, I love the aesthetic; however, the style is becoming too ubiquitous that it no longer feels special. For a while, I thought the best solution to MCM-induced fatigue was maximalist everything: Curvy furniture, bright hues, funky patterns. Turns out, hitting the refresh button on your space doesn’t have to be that extreme.

At Apartment Therapy, we believe your home is your sanctuary and you should fill it with items that bring you joy. For many people, that means adding some vintage pieces to the mix.
