Mix and matching textiles can be a bit overwhelming, and done incorrectly it can make your pillow vignette look like a bit of a mess. But! following a couple steps and keeping in mind tips and tricks can make it super easy and allow you to create a beautiful, cohesive look.
Step one: Establish your color scheme. Every single style doesn’t have to fall into this scheme, but you want to first establish the overall look, theme or tone you’re going for.
Step two: Choose a floral or tapestry style within your color scheme (AKA the star). This is the style we’ll be pairing our other styles with, as it’s usually the “busiest”. Choose this style first so you have a jumping off point.
Step three: choose a coordinating geometric print within your color scheme.
Step four: choose another geometric print on a different scale, or solid style to ground the look. For example, if we chose the Colette for our first geometric, maybe we’d go with Émilie for our second. It’s also important that our geometric style is significantly different than or first we’ve chosen. For example, if we’re using choosing Héloïse, avoid styling with Émilie as they are nearly identical.
One major rule of thumb I have is to avoid using the same patter in a different color. For example, I would say never use the Colette and Simonne in the same vignette.
