Nothing can change the look and feel of a home quite like color. It can create energy or it can evoke a sense of calm. And what about patterns? From small and classic herringbone to a big, bold floral print, adding life to your walls has never been easier. In 2017, taking a risk – big or small – with color or pattern is a great way to update your home. Plus, the Caribbean is the perfect setting to celebrate the bright and bold in this larger-than-life place. For the purposes of this blog, let’s check out this fresh bedroom with pops of orange and pink to show how color and pattern can make a big difference in your home.

Pick a Pattern

Choose a pattern and don’t be afraid to use a lot of it! Whether you want a statement pattern on a wall or choose a monochromatic pattern to create a subtle texture in your bedroom, be brave and go for it!

Keep It Coordinated

Once your pattern is determined, make sure you pull in some stability with coordinating solids. Yummy textures and interesting trims keep them from looking dull or just “thrown in”.

Build A Neutral Base

Keep the look fresh with a classic white or a soft grey background for the room. You’ll need that solid neutral to offset the bold color or pattern and ensure the room is livable. This room’s white walls and bedding create a nice contrast to the bold colors and patterns.

The Taylor bedding collection from Niche (one of our preferred vendors) is vibrant and inviting.

Pick Another Pattern

While it may sound scary, choosing one other strong patterned item in coordinating colors to balance the room. A rug with bold fabric that coordinates with curtains gives a room some panache, while just one of those items on its own may not have the same effect.

Details Make A Difference

Even when utilizing bright colors and exciting patterns, don’t forget the details! An extra special “something” here and there in the room make it feel inviting and more like a home and less like an art gallery. Check out the cute tassels on the bedding!
