Mixing it up...

The great thing about home decor trends right now is anything goes.  Whatever it is you love -- throw it all together - you can make it work.  You can mix eras, trends, high priced, low priced, flea market finds, boutique purchases, prints, textures, patterns.... the list goes on.

So, here are several great examples of mixing patterns.... You may be surprised as to what pairs well together, so even if you do have two printed fabrics that seem like they would never go together, give it a try - you might end up with something imaginative, creative, and perfect for you.

I absolutely love this living room.  The pairing of the printed fabrics against that rug is awesome.  And I am also loving that wicker chair too!  Image via Living Etc.

I am a big fan of this room.  Its brilliant how this room has the black and white polka dot ottomans paired with the yellow and greens.  So random.  and the elephant garden stool - love!  Image via Bazaar of Serendipity from House Beautiful
