What We Are Loving Right Now: Bold Patterns

October 22, 2020

Whether dabbling with a subtle touch or embracing the wild side, bold patterns are a trend that continue to stand the test of time. This month, Country Carpet is exploring the excitement surrounding bold patterns and the best ways to embrace and decorate with this eclectic trend. Read on to see how they can be genuine showstoppers in your home.

What we love about bold patterns

As professionals in the industry, we can’t say enough about using bold patterns in home décor. For starters, they not only offer a professionally designed look but provide a unique and sophisticated feel to your space.

So, what is the key to pulling the look together? The answer is simple: Maintain a balance using coordinating colors and textures. If you have shied away from bold patterns in the past, we encourage you to give them a second look.

Tips for embracing the bold

With the holidays around the corner, now is a great time to switch things up and enhance your home décor with a trendy bold new look. It’s an all-season must-have that will bring comfort and style to your home.

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

  • Choose a design theme—What’s your vision? Whether your design taste is traditionalist, Bohemian chic—or somewhere in between—decorating around your theme will keep the look consistent while showing off your unique taste and personality.
  • Use contrast—Starting off with a neutral backdrop makes it easy to add colorful accents.
  • Choose complimentary accent colors—Too much of the same color can be distracting. Using complimentary colors adds interest and helps tie the look together.
  • Pick patterns—Patterns provide character and offer design versatility. Using textiles—such as blankets, throw pillows and rugs—is an easy and fun way to incorporate patterns in your space.
  • Size and space—Knowing the proportion and scale of the space is key to balancing the look. Small spaces look best with one predominant color, whereas medium-sized rooms can handle more bold colors.
