“Pattern is a powerful way to turn up the volume in a room an express your personality,” says Emily Henson, the author of Be Bold: Interiors for the Brave Heart (Ryland Peters and Small, 2018). The room shown here has a Palm Springs/South Beach vibe with a feminine flair. You can replicate this relaxed vintage look by bringing in pattern using a medley of textiles, wallpaper, rugs, upholstery, and sleek but delicate tableware. Don’t be afraid to get a little kitschy with a ruffle-rimmed plate or palm lampshade. To avoid what Henson refers to as “visual chaos” use a pop of solid color from one of the patterns to break up the riot in the room. The emerald green upholstery for the backs of the dining chairs embodies that strategy here. The key to successfully mixing different designs is sticking with the same palette with three or four shades in common. Last, add an edgy framed photograph or an abstract painting to the wall to complete the look.
