Being Bold with Patterns

Being Bold with Patterns

When it comes to decorating your home, it can be tempting to play it safe and stick with neutral colours. However, why not go for something a bit more daring? You can liven up what was previously once a plain room with a pattern. Whether this is a feature wall, furniture accessories or floor decorations, you can find a pattern that perfectly compliments your space.

Colour Schemes

A simple way of easing into bold patterns is starting off with the colour scheme of the room. You don’t have to be brazen straight away. Say for instance if you have a cream room, you can add a splash of colour by painting the skirting boards a block colour of your choice. How bright you go will depending on how brave you’re feeling. Then you can build up from this.


Once you’ve got your chosen colour scheme sorted, it’s time for the next step: accessorising. If you’ve opted for subtle shades, accessories can really accent certain aspects of your room.  Rather than invest in an entire new set of upholstery, an easy, and cheaper, method of adding these pops of colour is getting a  new pair of blinds. Direct Blinds offers a fantastic range of roller blinds. Whether you’re looking for a bold pattern or a solid block of colour, you’ll find something which will look wonderful with your window.

Cushions can be another fantastic start to add some patterns into your room. As they’re so small, it gives you a great opportunity to experiment with styles you like, and you can find ones which compliment the room the best. Cushions may be small but they can have a big impact on a room. They can also liven up a tired looking sofa.


Or if you fancy the floor as your focus for your pattern choices, why not consider getting a bold print rug? This can be an option no matter what kind of flooring you have. If you have exposed wooden, a rug can act a stylish, soft, feature. Equally, if your floor is already carpeted, a patterned rug can act as a contrasting colour. A rug could potentially tie the entire colour scheme of a room together.

Feature Wall

If you’re feeling particularly bold with your room design, you could have a feature wall. According to an interior design queen, a feature wall is a great chance for you to get creative. If you’re lacking the ideas yourself, you can get inspired on social media. The interior design goes on further to say, the bolder the choice the bigger the statement, so don’t be afraid to be daring. This isn’t just with the pattern on your wall, but also in the furniture in your room.
