Mix It Up!
It’s time to mix it up this summer! Think stripes and floral, polka dots and plaid, houndstooth and animal print. Do we sound crazy yet? Once considered a fashion faux pas, mixing patterns is now a lively trend that is all about experimentation and creativity. The trick is to use patterns from the same color family and designs that won’t compete, like these looks from the fashion and crafting blog Say Yes to Hoboken.
The best part about this trend? You can mix and meld pieces you already own to create a revamped style without breaking the bank.
As you know, fashion trends are often mirrored in design, and mixing patterns is no exception! This trend creates depth in any room, and at Drexel Heritage, our designer Denise Alala is always introducing fun and unexpected twists on traditional furniture upholstery.
By mixing patterns, a single piece of furniture can add flair to any room in your house. Try the striped Holloway Sleep Sofa with elegant patterned throw pillows for an effortlessly chic design.
Or, for a complete room makeover, try contrasting our Millington Chair with plaid curtains for a polished, pulled-together look.
Mixing patterns is the perfect trend to build off what you already own. Mix and meld new and old furniture to create a look that is more collected than decorated. If you already own a neutral sofa, try adding our Runway Chair in houndstooth accented with a bright floral throw pillow to give your room an unexpected pop of style.
So, we must ask – are you up for the challenge? How will you mix patterns in your home?
