Decorating With Patterns, Patterned Textiles, and Patterned Upholstery

Do You Love Pattern?

The living room of designer Sig Bergamin’s sunny Brazilian home, which was featured in Elle Decor, is bursting at the seams with pattern. There's the beaded African armchair, a wide-striped rug, a Suzani draped over the sofa, ikat ottomans, a paisley frame, a plethora of patterned throw pillows, an exotic lampshade, and more! It works because the walls are white and room is flooded with light, but too much pattern can be dangerous sometimes. You've got to have that decorator touch to pull it off, I guess.

Tell me: do you love lots of pattern or do you prefer solids?
