Mix it Up!
I love to mix patterns, textures and time periods together – the results are always unique and unexpected. Mix it up, have fun and don’t be afraid to get creative. There isn’t a right or wrong way to do it. Here is some advice to get you started:
- When mixing patterns, it is always a good idea to pay attention to pattern scale. For example: small, medium and large prints work better than mixing several small patterns together. Simply put, a large dot print mixed with a small pinstripe works better than small dots and small pinstripes.
- Textures can be paired together quite easily but keep in mind it works best if there is a variety of smooth to course fabrics. An example might be leather, velvet and chenille paired within the same space.
- Mixing vintage and new together is a personal choice. Since vintage items have a history, they can add soul to a room that a new piece can’t match. I encourage you to keep your eyes open, you never know when a great piece will present itself.
Vintage meets Modern
I hope that each time you open your front door you feel inspired!
As an artist, I strive to create environments that inspire the eye and the soul. A home should reflect the owners personality, desires and hopes. It is my pleasure to help put the person in the space, otherwise it’s just a space.
