Pattern Mixing Your Linens

Pattern Mixing Your Linens

Have you noticed that pattern mixing has made a comeback?

In clothing, monochrome colors will always be my preferred look (I think I’ll always be partial to cream on cream or cream on white), but pattern mixing is a trend that, when done well, can be really stunning. For instance, navy blue gingham with soft blue stripes creates a beautiful coastal look perfect for summer.

A bright floral top paired with white jeans and a rattan woven shoe is one of my favorite outfit ensembles. It creates interest without being too obtrusive.

The same can be true when mixing patterns with home decor - when done well, it can create a show stopping element to your table, living room, or house at large.

Here are some examples of pattern mixing that are a far cry from being trendy. I love how they add instant warmth and cheer, while also being timeless.

A tablescape that has a more neutral pattern paired with a more expressive napkin and a simple floral arrangement adds a beautiful touch without being stuffy. It’s important to create a table where your guests feel comfortable but still maintains a level of elegance. One of my favorite combinations is the Immaculata tablecloth (simple floral design) paired with Fatima napkins (a hint of green with an unexpected yet feminine floral pattern). I like to include a simple floral arrangement to the center of the table - nothing too tall so you can carry on conversation across the table without obstruction - and a candle or two.

When it comes to mixing and incorporating various patterns in your home - be it on your table, curtains, or throw pillows - it can create a lasting and classic backdrop that won’t go out of style.
