Ask a Designer: Mixing Designs in the Bedroom

Christiane Lmieux, the founder of DwellStudio, has kindly offered to answer several reader questions. Here's our last one.

Hi Christiane,
How do you feel about mixing designs in the bedroom? I love having several graphic patterns, but my husband thinks that this looks too busy. Any way to make different graphic patterns work together?

Thanks!
Chell Belle

Hi Chell Belle,

Mixing is great. It shows personality and strong conviction. There is no right and wrong in design because it’s just another form of self-expression. I do think a good way to mix without it seeming overwhelming is choosing a color palette and sticking with it. So if you have a whole bunch of blue patterns— mix them together and add a pop of color. However, mixing too many patterns in too many competing colors can be tricky.

Hope this helps!
Christiane

Nice. I tend to mix stripes with florals and it looks very good together. Love the patterns above.
