Mix and match patterns have become increasingly popular over the last several years. Although there was once a time where having everything match perfectly was the cool and trendy thing to do, mixing and matching is now in – and it looks like it’s here to stay. Of course, when mixing and matching patterns, there are still some rules you should follow that will help keep our space from looking tacky and/or overwhelming. According to The Spruce, one of those rules is “When mixing patterns, make sure to choose two or three different types. You might pair stripes with polka dots, or polka dots with florals— just make sure that each pattern is distinct.” There are lots of ways to incorporate mix and match patterns into your living room including accent pillows, rugs, and furniture itself. Once you get the hand of mixing and matching, you’ll definitely love doing it. Here are 10 beautiful living rooms that utilize mix and match patterns.
