How to work colour and pat­tern like a pro

Real Living (Australia) - - HOMES -

SISÄLLÄ IN­TE­RI­ORS’ LAU­REN LI RE­VEALS HOW TO PLAY WITH PAT­TERN, TONE AND TEX­TURE 1. Show­case your in­di­vid­u­al­ity: “Get­ting to know each mem­ber of the fam­ily and the things they liked was key,” Lau­ren says. 2. Choose a sig­na­ture colour: “In the ‘cac­tus bed­room’, we picked the wall­pa­per first. The blinds are the same green and white.” 3. For­get matchy-matchy: “Don’t choose the same pat­tern in a dif­fer­ent colour – it looks con­trived. But be care­ful about mix­ing too many pat­terns in the one room. It can look a bit crazy!”
