Perfect Patterns

18 May

My friend Nichole, from Loom Decor, dropped by with a suitcase full of fabric. Not kidding. She totally pulled her travel gear from the back of her car, rolled right down the sidewalk and unpacked it on the dining room table where we began to weed through it. And I thought to myself, she is better than Santa Claus.  She came with a zillion fabric samples and we starting thinking through window treatments.

Loom is a brand new company launching this summer. The talented ladies who founded Loom have an eye for all things lovely and all things textile. Post coming about Loom–you will want to know these ladies and their company. Top. Notch.

Since my meeting with Nichole I’ve been thinking about mixing patterns. Each of the living room windows has a  different sample/pattern hanging from the corner. I’m living with them, figuring out which pattern I like best.

Here are some images to encourage you in your mixing.

Here’s the bottom line: Do whatever you want. When you get it wrong, you’ll know. If you sit down in the living room and all you can think of is the circus, you might have gotten it wrong. If you think, this is a lot but it works, you’ve probably gotten it right. Make your own rules.

Have a lovely day.
