Do you think that masterly mixing prints can onlyProfessional decorators? Of course, the most daring experiments are best entrusted to the masters of their craft, but everyone can competently combine patterns in the interior. And our advice will help in this. All kinds of prints and ornaments are an integral part of any interior. They can be found almost everywhere, sometimes even where there is at first sight no pattern. The simplest, laid with herringbone tiles in the bathroom - also a pattern, a certain pattern. But today we will talk about how to combine the patterns chosen consciously: what rules to follow so as not to overdo it or, conversely, not to make the interior too boring, what you need to know, selecting several ornaments in one room, and so that the combinations turn out to be exclusively harmonious . Use an odd number of prints If you want to use several prints in the interior, decorators advise to choose an odd number of patterns - visually this combination is perceived better and looks more interesting than the literal pair. Start with three different prints, and, gaining experience, you can also experiment with five. Combine patterns of different sizes This ruleVery similar to the first: use the "principle of three" and when selecting the scale of patterns. Let one print be small, another medium, and the third large. An example of a good combination is a large, medium geometric (for example a strip) and some neutral classic print on the smallest scale. Find the one that will combine all the colorsTo make the composition of ornaments harmonious, choose and make the main one that will include the colors of all other patterns. Typically, the role of the main color scheme is the wallpaper with a large active print, but it may well be furniture or even textiles. For example, in the first photo, the unifying pattern is not on the wallpaper, but on the curtains, which contain the color schemes of all other prints in the room. Large pattern - for a large area, small - forSmall Just like massive furniture is put in a spacious room, and for a smaller one choose more compact and light models, larger prints are better for using on a large area, and smaller ones are used on a small one. Sometimes professional decorators deliberately depart from this rule to create a wow effect, but in order not to be mistaken, it is better to stick to the traditional scheme: larger patterns for walls, curtains and carpets, medium for furniture, small for local accents. Prints enliven the monochrome space Color inInterior plays almost the main role, so if you chose a monochrome scale, you need to revive it with the help of a variety of textures and, of course, patterns. Use different shades of the same color and do not be afraid to experiment with the size and style of the drawings - in a monochrome interior, you take virtually no risks. Two bright colors + one neutral CombinationSeveral different patterns - in itself a bold decision, so avoid too bright prints. Experienced decorators recommend choosing for all patterns in the interior two active colors and one neutral, which will equally soothe them. It can be, for example, white as a background for blue and pink or blue and bright blue. Also for the role of the background color, black, shades of gray and beige perfectly suits. Combine Geometry and BotanyIncongruous always attracts the eye. If you do not create a strict minimalist interior or do not seek to decorate the room in accordance with all the canons of style, then as a contrasting couple you can safely choose geometric and floral ornaments. And it is not necessary to understand them literally and to combine straight lines with romantic roses: the floral print can be stylized, and the geometric print can be less obvious. Observe Saturation Balance ElementsThe interior does not need to be completely neutral or without exception bright, but try to withstand the balance of saturation. If the room is decorated in pastel colors, an unexpected splash of color without any support will look foreign. Similarly, some white and pink peas simply get lost on the background of other saturated patterns, if only this background is not.
