What Houzz contributors are saying:
2. Make a mood board. Planning a decorating project can be a pleasing and creative endeavor in its own right — plus it’ll help you get the combination of elements right the first time when you’re ready to go ahead with a new design. Gather images that catch your eye in a Houzz ideabook —perhaps ones with an appealing mood, clever feature or the perfect color scheme. Then send away for samples of fabric, tile, paint and wallpaper, and pin them to a board to see how they work together. Try to keep each sample roughly in proportion to the area of the room it will occupy.See how to create and use Houzz ideabooks
Foolproof Plan 2: Same-Scale GeometricsAnother easy way to mix multiple geometric patterns is to choose patterns with a similar thickness to the lines. These pillows use very different patterns, but they all contain thin lines at approximately the same scale. A single pillow in a chunky pattern might look out of place, but since they all share a similar line weight they look coordinated.
