Mixed prints in interior design

17 January
If several years ago mixture of different prints was considered bad style today the situation has changed revolutionary. Now mixed prints are in trend. Checks and stripes, animal and floral patterns are eagerly combined by both bloggers and designers. What do you think of joining them in these exciting experiments? To begin with let's study 5 main rules of prints mixture in interior design. 

Mixed prints

1. Various prints – one colour


Combination of different patterns in one colour gamut is the safest way. But try to choose textile and wallpaper from one collection, otherwise you'll have to spend a lot of time searching for décor element ideally matching your interior.

2. Pick the chief


Another way is to find the print combining all basic shades you wish to see in your interior. Other objects should be chosen with a glance at the main print

3. Minimum of ingredients


Start experimenting with 2-3 motifs. If everything goes well, involve more!

4. One-style look


Usually one-type prints are mixed within the interior. This way you don't risk much. In other words, a classical floral print will surely look more harmonic in combination with damask ornament than with ikat, for instance.

5. Play with sizes


The best result comes from mixture of different print sizes: this way they complement each other instead of competing. Besides fine patterns looks better on small objects (cushions, for example), while large ones are more appropriate for walls or carpets.
