Working with patterns can be tricky. If you have lots of different patterns or don’t incorporate the right colours and textures it can look over the top. Here are a few pointers on how to work with patterns.
If your bed linen is patterned, try using plain coloured scatter cushions and a throw. This will make the bed pop without it looking too crazy. This doesn’t mean the cushions have to be boring, try using different textures to add that “wow” factor.
Don’t overthink it. The pattern on the bed spread is what will stand out, so you don’t need to go crazy with everything else. The colours you use throughout the cushions and throw should compliment the bed spread.
If you decide to use patterned bed linen make sure to choose a room that is fairly plain, for example: plain walls, simple flooring and neutral curtains.
