Pattern Play - Going Bold

I had a springy blue board pretty much completed and then I saw this fabric and started all over again.


The rich golds and reds really drew me in. It also made me think of my Suburban Entry design board as well. But how cute would it be as a cafe curtain in a kitchen or breakfast nook?


Cafe curtain with the bold floral, perhaps a banquette upholstered in the stripe, and then some fun pillows. Bring on the coffee and brunch!

What are your thoughts on this scheme? Would you use in a dining area or would you use it elsewhere?

  6. I'll bring the bagels! I love this board (and the beautiful Covington pattern) because it's a)not expected and b)could suit any room and any season. I love what you paired with it. Another great pattern play, Holly!

  8. While changing the entire contours of your house, you can even add designer dinning accessories to it. Reason being, it will enhance the look and feel of your dining room as well as make mood while you will be having any meal of your day. Choose designer dinning accessories from Dubai for yourselves and make your room look stylish and chic.

  10. Really pretty mix of fabrics, and everything ties in with that bold floral so nicely! Love the diamond fabric, I've only seen that as a rug in the past.

  11. Ooooo, love, love LOVE!!! You are SO speaking my language with this paisley fabric. I love the black background so much, and would have this in my home in a heartbeat. And I really like what you've paired it up with on the right... but I also really like the top left fabric, too. You can come and redo my place with these choices anytime!!!

  12. Mmmmm. This feels so warm and cozy...like a room I'd want to drink my morning coffee in and catch up on some blog reading.

  13. I love these together. I am looking for something similar to the diamond fabric for a client. Great combo!

  14. I could see it in a kitchen with a banquette but I would also try it in a study with an upholstered desk chair - the paisley, that is; something similar to the cushion fabric on the floor (patternwise) and striped curtains, the diamond red in a guest chair and so on. These could work anywhere, really.

  15. Loving this combination! I really need to focus on my banquette - my colors are all over the place and the cushion has seen many spaghetti dinners :)

  16. You are so good at mixing prints! I need to bookmark this page so I can use it as a reference. I'm seriously bad at mixing fabrics and this mixture is so great!
