Give Pattern Mixing A Try

There are so many beautiful and decorative pillows in the marketplace that sometimes it is difficult to decide which ones to choose.  Whether you opt for stripes, florals or solids, there is a way to combine all three decorative pillow looks with taste and flair.

Home and Hearth Magazine Online suggests that you use this simple rule of thumb for pattern mixing decorative pillows.  Just make sure to combine pillows that have opposite proportions.  For example, large florals pair well with narrow stripes.  Bold stripes work better with demure florals.  Then, throw in a splash color solid pillow and you’ve created a harmonious pattern mix.
