As much as we love a neutral home and the calmness that soft neutrals bring to our living spaces, it’s always refreshing to bring in a pop of pattern for a brighter, more modern feel.
If you don’t want color or pattern to overpower the entire look of your room, we feel you. Subtle, but making a small statement is what we’re going for when we’re looking for the perfect patterned pieces to incorporate into our design scheme. Shop our favorite patterned inspo picks for a few ideas on how to refresh your room and make a fresh statement in your home.
A statement rug
A rug is the perfect way to incorporate a little pattern into your room. It doesn’t have to be something so bold or have strong colors to make a big statement. Choose a pattern that compliments the rest of your home. Maybe it’s a subtle oriental rug or maybe it’s black and white stripes. A rug will tie in the rest of your furniture and complete the look, and it’s a great way to add in pattern and texture.

A cute pouf
Additional seating is always a must when it comes to a living room, and a pouf is the fun way to add in a pop of fun pattern and show off your personality. A little contrast never hurt anyone, and starting small is smart so you won’t overpower the rest of the room.
Stuff & layer it
Pillows are a great way of adding a subtle touch of color with pillows. Layer your neutral pillows with patterned pillows to keep it low key, simple, and classic. Pillows make a space look more cohesive and comfortable. Think of them like you do your accesorories. They are the finishing touch to your decor and are easy to change up when you want a new look.
