MIXING PRINTS IN THE LOUNGE

The lounge is where you entertain, and where your family will spend the most time together, so if you’re going to put energy into decorating anywhere in your home, it should be here. Start by deciding on a colour scheme that you like, and look for pieces that are in a similar tone in order to tie everything together. We used burnt orange and dusty pink as our focal colours, and built our look up from there.

MIXING PRINTS IN THE KITCHEN

Have fun mixing and matching crockery in the kitchen by selecting pieces around a central theme. We’ve used Moroccan-style pottery as our base, and added other items that complement the colour range to compile the gorgeous collection below.

MIXING PRINTS IN THE BEDROOM

Starting with one big solid and working patterns in around it will help you to create balance when mixing prints. Allow your bedspread or duvet cover to be the focal point in a bedroom, and accessorise to match. In our look below we picked up on the monochrome detailing of the duvet cover, and ran with that theme throughout the rest of the room.
