What we love about prints

Every home has a personality. Whether you are conscious of it or not, you can size up the homeowner’s design taste just by walking through his or her front door. This year, it’s all about leaving the past behind by breathing new life into our spaces. It’s true that prints add personality and character to a room—but they also create a unique aesthetic that reflects your creative side.

So, what is the key to pulling the look together? The answer is simple: Create a visually pleasing look with a balance of simple prints complemented by intricate designs. If you have shied away from using prints in the past, we encourage you to give them a second chance.

Tips for embracing prints

With spring around the corner, now is a great time to discover the power of prints in your home. Feeling a bit unsure?

Here are some design tips to help create your favorite look:

  • Incorporate solids into your design. Solids help create a visual space that breaks up the area while helping to show off your prints even more. Try either selecting a solid color from your favorite print or choosing a complementing color to pull the look together.
  • Pair two coordinating looks to create interest. For example, choose your favorite larger pattern to be center stage and pair it with a softer repeating one. The takeaway is to avoid using the same size print or covering the same amount of area.
  • Avoid print overload. Using prints throughout the room helps create a beautiful balance, as opposed to focusing on one particular area.
  • Begin simply by using throw pillows, area rugs, and blankets. This décor tip is a great way to introduce prints into your home while spicing up the personality in the space. Plus, it gives you the flexibility to switch things up until you find the perfect balance.
  • Stripes and geometric patterns work seamlessly with prints. Consider them your design go-to’s. When in doubt—stripes and geometric patterns won’t let you down.
