Wit & Delight’s May theme is all about the fun of decorating your home with patterns. I wanted to compile a list of the most popular interior design patterns styled in my favorite spaces.
There are many ways to incorporate patterns into your home. Most patterns fall into one of several categories, so knowing which type of pattern to use can be helpful when searching. The pattern below is one that I keep coming back to.
Here are 5 popular interior design patterns that I style in my favorite rooms.
1. Tory Murphy textile stripes
The real cabana stripe is my favorite pattern of all. I like its simplicity and great visual impact. When it comes to interior design, you can always add a twist to a classic style by applying design elements on an unexpected scale. I think the addition of this curtain to this room does just that.
2. Floral, featured by Tess Newall Studio
There’s no shortage of floral prints, but they’re popular for a reason. What I love is that it adds both visual texture and a variety of colors to any room. I like the florals in this playroom because there is space between each floral to breathe. The background in this room is so beautiful.
3. Botanical pattern, Beata Human feature
Botanical patterns are a way to incorporate plants into your home design. This kind of pattern can feature leaves, flowers, trees, and other natural elements. This example of a botanical pattern in Beata Human’s house is more a mural than anything else, but it shows that the pattern does not necessarily have to be a step-and-repeat design. Patterns can feature small areas of a design element that appear larger than they actually are.
4. Block print pattern, special feature house and garden
The black print is also a pattern that can be visually read as a texture. This is my second favorite interior design pattern. What I like about this space is that it adds depth to the mostly monotone color scheme. I feel very peaceful and rich.
Five. Geometric patterns, featured by The House on Dolphin Street
I love geometric patterns that are often referenced in historical contexts. So it’s no surprise that the patterns depicted on the quilts are some of my favorites. I love how it brings a relaxed atmosphere to any room.
