Fashion Translation: Pattern Mixing, the boho way.

Whether spring is in full-effect where you live… or you’re buried under a blanket of snow, it’s the perfect time to update your space. One of my favorite fashion trends is still going strong: print mixing. Today I want to share some of my favorite ways to incorporate this fashion-forward look into your home, but with bohemian vibes.

Pattern Mixing

The first look is rather rather bohemian and colorful, don’t you think? Now, this is a look that reminds me of being on vacation. I suggest taking cues from far off places and adding a global touch to your home. Then, make it feel more modern by layering on a touch of geometric. My biggest piece of advice centers around the scale of each pattern: make sure to select prints that are different enough so that they don’t compete visually.

If layering rugs isn’t your speed, perhaps it’s best to try mixing and matching pillows and rugs. I suggest identifying a single color from your patterned rug that really speaks to you and using that to inspire your pillow pattern selection. I also love the idea of adding a suzani rug to pretty much any space for that special, boho look.
