Prints help making any space more eye-catching and bold, just like bright colors, and they can spruce up many spaces easily. It may be very tricky to keep your home decor to just one pattern and sometimes we need to mix the prints. How to do that right and with style? Here are some ideas.

Use Only One Pattern

If you are thinking about one specific pattern idea, we recommend sticking to that one pattern instead of incorporating multiple ones. Doing so will allow that pattern to be the main focus. Meanwhile, keep the rest of the room with simple colors and basic lines. What to choose to add prints? It can be a statement wall done with edgy wallpaper, a bright printed sofa, tiles on a kitchen island, a large printed rug or curtains or even pillows, which are the easiest and most budget-friendly way to add prints to your home.

Pair Larger Or Dramatic Prints With Simpler Ones

Having this feature will add an edgy feel to the room while still being feminine and classic. You may also rock larger printed pieces as dominating ones, and all the rest of them will be smaller and secondary, it will work in a stylish way.
