I am sure you all know how much a LOVE texture and pattern, but did you know I also actually love color? My home may be decorated in neutrals through and through simply because I know I may not always love the boho-traditionalist in me forever. Staying neutral gives me longevity especially since we are not in the bracket that can redo their home on a whim. It also happens that I lean towards all the pieces that would make my boho-traditionalist self happy are on the higher end. It is very rare for me to come across budget pieces that could make this a reality. I find it easier to fake a higher-end design with a neutral palette so that is what I happen to stick with. Here are three variations on how to do color + pattern. I go from ever so bold to what I would preferably have in my master as a sitting area. HA.
This would be a bold choice! One that I actually would love to do. In order to keep it from feeling to chaotic I would stick to the same color family, here it happens to be blue. I would ground the space with a natural textures such as the brass lamp and woven side table.
This variation would be a tamer choice, but still pack a bit of punch. Again I brought the blues down only this time in a simpler pattern. I believe this to be a happy medium yet still be quite fun and quirky. You know I love some quirkiness! Perfection does not suite me well.
Now this would is the most tame of the three, but still is interesting. The palette is simpler, but the pattern and texture is still there. If I were to introduce more color into our home this is how I could do it easily. If you just remove the chairs and pillows and add neutral linen ones then this would BE my house, but add new chairs or slipcover some I already have in a fun pattern then add colorful pillows then this is what I would basically have.Maybe one day I will venture out.
