|Large patterned chair - source - my pinterest board.|
There are tips and techniques available in decorating magazines and online sources - I have plucked just a few of them but they are easy to find by googling "working with large patterns in decorating".
|Love this bright chair - see source above.|
Here's a typical list of suggestions:
Playing with pattern
Mix patterns such as checks with florals or large-scaled patterns with small-scaled patterns.
Not sure when enough is enough? Play it safe! Use three different patterns that contrast in scale but relate in color.
More is more when you confidently mix up to five patterns. To do so, let one large-scaled pattern dominate over one medium-scaled floral and another geometric, and toss in two small-scaled accent patterns (your choice of floral or geometric). Make sure the colors in the large-scaled pattern are repeated in all the others.
Place pattern everywhere! Put the same pattern on the walls, windows, and furnishings. source
|Wow - look at the scale of this one - see source above.|
As with anything, pictures tell the story best - here are some photos from my pinterest boards as well as collages of my prior and current large pattern upholstered piece offerings.
I think you can easily see why bringing in large patterns can really make the space and provide a good basis for other decorating elements.
What's not to love about large patterns!
