Mixing Patterns

As I mention in the book, it's all right to mix patterns and textures if the colors
are similar. In this picture, I have two different stripes and a pattern,
but they're all in the same color family.

Here we've mixed bamboo with a shiny fabric with a wood 
and a black lacquer, but they're all neutrals and they look great.

Things from nature tend to look nice together. These animal prints with the wood
almost seem like they were made for each other 

Again, similar colors tie these together.

It's hard to go wrong with mixing black and white patterns.

Look at how beautifully this grouping brings together giraffe, geometric, and a lily
in black, white, and gray.

Throw pillows are a fun way to mix it up.
