The past few years have been all about the White Bedding, which I still love.  It’s clean, it’s crisp & can go with any style.  But after a few years of all white bedding & all the white beds I did during my hotel design days I am starting to crave some pattern (lots of pattern!)
This great mix of pattern is balanced by color & scale.  The balance comes from the use of the same over-scaled botanical on the headboard & duvet.  There are eight different patterns at work here but they all relate thanks to the overall color palette.

This may be a pattern overload for some (like the hubs) but the fresh mix of the geometric black & white mixed with the modern take of the tangerine & orchid toile take this room to the next level.  Opposites really do attract.
pink and orange
I adore the mix of patterns & textures that Gary Riggs Home was able to accomplish in the next bedroom.  The fresh take on chevron mixed with graphic suzani & geometric prints keeps your eye moving throughout the space. 
Great Mix of Patterns
Apparently I am not over chevrons after all because I am heavily gravitating toward this bedding.  Because here it is again.  This time is is brilliantly paired with Kelly Wearstler’s Bengal Bazaar & the trellis sheeting.  Well done Miss Dayka Robinson!

I’m thinking this bedding might be a good transition away from the white bedding as you still get the clean look with the white background, but you still get the very graphic look.  {btw… it’s available at West Elm & on sale now}
When going for the patterned look my biggest recommendation would be to avoid the 32 piece bed in a bag kit… you all know what I am talking about & we have all bought them.  But next time you are on the hunt feel free to mix things up.  Just like furniture, you don’t have to buy the set!  Feel free to mix up the patterns & it’s OK if everything doesn’t match.  In fact, you will get a more layered look if it doesn’t.  Just try to stay in the same tones.  Great trick for pattern mixing 101.
Love the colours and pattern of this bedding
& if you are still too timid to go all out with this look you can always just do a patterned sheet…  a little peek of a pattern can still make a big impact.  
( & Dayka Robinson Designs did it again!  In a polka dot no less. )
Adore the bedding
Is anyone else planning to be daring in the bedroom this year? With patterns that is… let’s keep those comments clean πŸ™‚
