Mixing colors and prints. One of my favorite parts of decorating, truly. I am still refining my skills at this, and I will admit to making several big color/print mistakes around our home; but this remains one of my favorite processes. I love eclectic spaces, mostly for their boldness in colors, prints, and accessories. I am always fascinated when I look at rooms or homes and I see that there definitely is a method to its patterned scheme, and there is a real color story lying there in the midst of the abundance.
Like I said, I am still working on this. At this point, it is difficult for me to really gauge if a color is going to work until I try it on for size. Sometimes I'm wrong about it, sometimes I'm right. But this is an element that I am hoping to become better and better at over time, using both my designer's intuition, and by paying attention to a room's true color story and making good decorating judgments based on what I know to be true.
In the meantime, I am free to dream...
Do you like this design style, or are you more of a neutral decorator?
