Style With Prints & Patterns

Mixing prints and patterns can bring an airy freshness your home. But it can also be a challenge to mix and match in a way that doesn’t overpower or suffocate your rooms. By keeping it 60/30/10 you’ll create inviting spaces that you love to relax and entertain in. To follow the 60/30/10 guideline, you’ll use 60% of a favorite pattern, 30% of a second pattern, and 10% of a third as an accent. Then experiment with a range of scales: a narrow stripe, a midsize geometric, and a bold floral. Balance the look with solids on a sofa or accent rug.

The Bali Hai San Carlos Chair with Exposed Wood Arms and Casters by Tommy Bahama exemplifies the 60/30/10 rule perfectly. The tropical, striped fabric sets the color notes and the orange floral pillow picks them up and enhances them. Add a geometric print on the drapes and a balancing solid on the floor and you have successfully mixed and matched to create a room reminiscent of an island vacation on white sand beaches.
Once you have your topical stripes and your bold floral, additional patterns in size and scale can be added. Use your big floral print on an accent pillow on your chair and then use a print that picks up the same colors in a different pattern on the sofa cushions. With pieces from the Bali Hai collection, you can mix and match patterns creating a cozy retreat for you and your family.
