ACCESSORISE: Choose a few fresh, new items of soft furnishing, such as cushions and bed throws. Dare to be bold and do not forget that texture can make pattern that bit more exciting.
WOW WALL: If you have a very plain room introduce pattern by papering one wall with a striking wallpaper. By keeping the rest of the room neutral the pattern will stand out, creating a bold effect.
CURTAIN CALL: Refresh your curtains and give them a new lease of life. This doesn't necessarily involve replacing them - you can update your current curtains by adding a deep, patterned border.
BORDERLINE: Take patterns to the next level and combine two. Make your cushions eye catching by creating a deep border around the cushion with one pattern, and choosing another pattern for the main fabric of the cushion.
SUBTLE TOUCH: Patterns can be intricate and subtle, for example, the fine white thread that runs through this particular wallpaper adds texture and creates an understated pattern that continues through the room.
CHOOSE WISELY: When selecting a pattern, keep in mind that you can choose from a wide selection of geometric shapes, florals, striking stripes... let your imagination run wild. For example, add interest to your dining room by covering your chairs in a selection of different patterned materials, create a feature wall in a common area or reflect pattern in an angled mirror.
BOLD BED: Create a feature out of the bed by choosing a bold, geometric pattern for the headboard, this is guaranteed to give your room a striking impact. If you wish to use pattern in a less prominent position, you can replace valances with a bold pattern. For more impact, use the same striking pattern from the headboard and continue it along the base.
ART ATTACK: Get creative with your artwork and use frames to create a bespoke pattern on your walls, whether it be a selection of framed mirrors or a variety of framed prints.
LOOK UP: Take your pattern to the ceiling. Either keep your feature wall flowing onto the ceiling, or do the unexpected and paper the ceiling instead of the walls to make your room memorable.
LOOK DOWN: Take your pattern to the ceiling. Either keep your feature wall flowing onto the ceiling, or do the unexpected and paper the ceiling instead of the walls to make your room memorable.
