mix

I love mixing it up with pattern. The key to mixing pattern is all about scale. The large windowpane check fabric on the chair mixes well with the slightly smaller scale drapery print, while the neutral ground on the walls binds everything together. Don't be afraid to mix up patterns; its all about the scale, proportion and balance. Pick the most dominant color from the patterns to tie everything together. In this story, a pillow in the same fabric as the draperies would be a nice addition on the chair.

"Robert Allen and New York-based design house DwellStudio celebrates design’s heyday captured within the pages of legendary shelter magazines from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s. The new Modern Archive (collection) takes enduring patterns and motifs—florals, Op-art geometrics, toile—and breathes new life into them with exciting proportions, impressionistic gradations and on trend color combinations, all of which can be layered with DwellStudio’s signature art-of-the-mix style. The result creates a fresh new look that walks the line between urban and urbane."-Robert Allen Design- Photo: Robert Allen Design contact: info@marieminnichdesign.com follow my blog: www.marieminnichdesign/indigo
