Making it Bright: 7 Original Ways to Add Ornament to the Interior

We focus on trends, combine different ornaments, and advise how many patterns to add to the interior.

If you want to make the environment more interesting and original with the help of patterns, but don’t know where to start, turn to trends. For example, simple, uncomplicated patterns are especially relevant now: stripes, polka dots, as well as geometric patterns. Plant and floral patterns, which have remained at the peak of fashion for several seasons, have not lost their relevance.

The African style in the interior is gaining popularity and with it ethnic patterns and animalistic, animal prints.

In addition, classic motifs are always in fashion: check, meander, houndstooth, pepita, argyle, and herringbone. By the way, the inclusion of classic patterns in a modern interior is a trendy solution in itself.

2. Taking into account the style of the interior

There is no point in adding current or classic patterns to the environment if they contradict the overall style. Be sure to take into account the chosen style when introducing patterns into the interior. And, for example, in minimalist spaces or interiors in the loft or high-tech style, you can do without ornaments at all.

3. Dosing

Abandoning ornaments and patterns in the environment is a common mistake. But it would be no less erroneous to oversaturate the interior with patterns. What should I do? If you are not sure about your sense of proportion in this matter, add patterns in doses and gradually.

4. Combining the Incongruous

Above, we advise you to rely on the chosen interior style when choosing patterns. But, as you know, rules exist to be broken, and the combination of the incongruous can become a spectacular expressive device, an ironic move, and a highlight of the setting. The main thing is not to get carried away: one or two “inappropriate” patterns will be quite enough to dilute the accuracy of the stylistic solution. (Unless, of course, you’re creating an eclectic or fusion space, in which case you can go wild.)

5. Adding Overlapping Motifs

An easy way to add an ornament (or even several ornaments at once) to the interior and not miss their compatibility is to focus on repetitive, overlapping motifs. Large polka dots go well with small ones, a wide stripe goes well with a narrow one, and a diamond-shaped pattern goes well with argyle.

Floral motifs are almost always perfectly combined with each other. A single color scheme is able to “reconcile” even patterns that are not particularly combined.

6. We use décor

Many people are afraid of patterns and patterns in the interior. And for good reason: this is quite an active technique that may well become boring and boring, lose its relevance, or be inappropriate with a partial change of scenery.

Don’t want to take any chances? Add ornaments with décor, small pieces of furniture, and accessories (which can be easily and inexpensively replaced if desired) and do not involve decoration and large furnishings in this process.

7. We rely on textiles

A quick, simple, not too expensive, and spectacular way to add ornaments to the interior is textile: decorative pillows, curtains, tablecloths, bed linen, bedspreads and plaids, towels, rugs, runners, etc.
