Pattern Mix

THIS is everything that I love these days in an interior. Clean lines and concrete but softened and given interest with pops of colour, pattern, and texture through the textiles.

And am I mad for thinking this candy-striped, green-painted chaise would round out the look to perfection?

With a neutral backdrop (here the stark white fireplace) and a colour story that sticks to three main colours (here pink, green, natural) you can mix it up pattern-wise and not look too crazy. Or at least look intentionally, stylishly crazy. Your backdrop could be white or dark paint, panelled wood walls, it doesn’t really matter. But keeping it less busy is what makes it work.

    You are right, I think that chaise would be just right in that room, to soften off the starkness of the modern open fire. Nice.
