Cozy Bedroom

Soft, cuddly textures may be cozy, but this mix isn’t all fluff. Changing up the scale of the prints—bold stripes and triangles on the pillows plus a fine-lined diamond-pattern throw—keeps things interesting. The secret weapon: pink!

“Each element has the same pretty shade of blush,” says Austin, TX, designer Amy Lutz. The hue also plays off the wall color (Quaint Peche by Sherwin-Williams).

Boho Entry

Yes, you can have six patterns on one bench, in a variety of sizes to boot—Los Angeles designer Natalie Myers did up her own version on a vintage seat from chairish.com.

“I love the boho look of kilims and mud cloth, but I find that adding some more polished styles makes the mix feel modern,” she says. Here, a gold triangle pillow and a gray Otomi one do just that.

Bold Bedroom

How to pull off a wild combo of prints? “I tied everything together with a multicolor floral,” says Oklahoma City, OK, blogger Jennifer Griffin of Dimples and Tangles, who sewed these pillow covers herself.

The blue spots, green palm leaves, and orange-and-pink geometric patterns pick up the flowers’ hues. The finishing touch is her kind of neutral—leopard print, with a bright pom-pom at each corner.

Says Salt Lake City, UT, designer Shea McGee, "The contrast of a lush organic design and graphic ones always works."
