Mixing and Matching Colors Scales and Patterns in your Home Decor

Mixing and matching colors, scales, and patterns in your home can be overwhelming, but it's easier than you think with a few simple guidelines.

  • Focus on two colors and a neutral one. Use the 60-30-10 rule: 60% dominant color, 30% secondary color, and 10% accent color. Your dominant color will likely come from a large-scale pattern, such as a rug, sofa, or wall art.
  • Create visual interest and balance by using a large-scale pattern with a medium-scale pattern and a small-scale pattern. For example, you could combine a bold stripe with a smaller floral print and a solid accent color.
  • Stick to the same color palette when choosing patterns. This will help to create a cohesive look. You can also add solid accent pillows or throws to tie the room together.
  • Create a sense of continuity by incorporating similar colors and patterns throughout your home. This not only enhances the flow of your d├ęcor but also allows you to mix and match pieces from different rooms without the need for constant purchases.

With a touch of planning and creativity, you can effortlessly transform your home into a stylish haven that reflects your personal style – Your Happy Place!
