In our most recent blog post, we discussed the many benefits of looking over our previous design projects, including finding design inspiration and seeing various concepts in action. Indeed, starting your very own project can be a rewarding and fun experience, but it is very important you avoid the major pitfalls of design that often take clients by surprise, including clashing patterns, colors, and textures. In today’s blog, your Houston, TX interior designer explores the different pattern types to be aware of and discusses how you should place and mix them in your project.
Different Types of Patterns
It goes without saying that there are several different ways you can initiate your design project. From yearning for a change of pace to a complete home overhaul, there is something for everyone in the realm of design. What your space looks like says a lot about you and your values, goals, and personality. So naturally, you want your space to reflect a true message about your space and your home.
When taking a look at patterns, it becomes clear that there are several factors to consider. For starters, some patterns are textured, others offer a glossy feel or a matte finish, and many conflict with others. At its core, the six base patterns of design include stripes, animal patterns, complex patterns, motif patterns, geometric, and floral patterns.
Each pattern type, of course, contains its own subsection of styles that include textures, colors, and more. Some patterns are better suited for a bold approach, whereas others offer a light but necessary accent. To learn more about this process and how our team can help, give us a call today.
Where Should Patterns be Placed?
Another important element to consider when looking at different patterns is how these patterns are going to be placed. For instance, patterns are not limited to just adding wallpaper, and they can be used in virtually any element in your space. This includes pillow cushions, rugs, furniture, art, ceiling style, and even floorboards.
Believe it or not, it is not so much about the type of pattern that is implemented, but rather, where it is placed that can make or break a design concept. Contact our team today to learn more about this process and how we can help you get started.
Using and Mixing Patterns
Finally, but certainly not least, it is important to consider how different patterns are going to mix and contrast with one another. The biggest pitfall to avoid is clashing, and there are unfortunately endless ways that this can occur in a specific project or design.
