Design Success: How to Mix Colors and Patterns

How to Mix Colors & PatternsAre you afraid of color? Are the majority of walls in your house neutral? You’re not alone. Blasting your house with colors doesn’t have to overwhelming or distasteful.

The key to successfully incorporating color into your space is to break down your boundaries. Throw out pre-existing notions of colors that clash and don’t be afraid to play with different color schemes.

Moderation: another key. Mixing and matching wall colors probably isn’t the smartest idea. But, mixing throw pillow colors, table accents, and light fixtures can be a great way to liven up a space.
