Shop Houzz: Go for Pattern in a Small Space
Accent the Space in Waves of PatternScout for a bold-patterned rug to bring a big dose of pattern into a small space. In a bedroom, the linens lay a canvas for showcasing pattern. Choose contrasting colors and a graphic print, like a chevron stripe. Refine your palette to neutrals and one accent color, so the patterns don’t look loco.
Layer in Subtle Pattern With TextureCreate a cohesive mix of pattern in a small space with a little bold and a lot of subtle layers of texture. Scout a tailored herringbone or tone-on-tone rug for a classic look. On the other end of the style spectrum, bring in textures of petals for a girly bedroom that needs some frills.
The Stars are BrightStars are a classic-yet-modern pattern that’s been popping up in more places than the nursery. In a small space, a pattern of stars feels magical. You can even cast glowing stars on the ceiling with a fancy nightlight.
Fill Walls With Modern PhotographyYou don’t want those walls to stay bare, and there’s more ways than one to wow with pattern. Modern photography prints add colorful texture — and visual interest — to your walls. Enjoy everyday scenes turned into art.
Finish the Space With Clear WinnersMirrored tables and clear crystal lamps create a lightness in small rooms. These picks visually recede in your space, so that your small room doesn’t feel overrun with furniture.
Use Your Wall Space EffectivelyYou won’t regret going for it with a graphic bold pattern in a small room, like a bedroom, dining nook, entry, or bath. Wallpaper in a small space creates an effect that wows, without looking cluttered. Choose a pattern that draws you in — nature themes and geometric prints have a timeless appeal.
