Pattern Play: Preppy Floral

  1. I definitely lack confidence when it comes to mixing patterns, so I’m going to pay very close attention to this series!

  2. Kristy Swain says:

    Great new series!! Love it. And, love that you added the navy!

    So bizarre! My rep literally just stopped by to drop off some fabric books and this floral fabric was the first one I saw! Then I decided to take a little web break, and here it is. It’s very darling.

    Love this new series! How about tackling children’s fabric patterns next week?

    Since you have a love of elephants, I’d love to see you tackle a sophisticated elephant print with other textiles to create something fabulous, and not something that looks like a sign-up sheet for a safari trip. I know you can do it! Love what you have done with the above…looks great and the navy makes the entire look! Way to go.

  6. Pretty fabrics. Where did you find them? Also what about the large pieces of furniture like the sofa?

  7. Lori says:

    What a great idea for a new series! It is definitely a daunting task to us non-designers for sure. It is hard to figure out how to put colors and patterns together without being too matchy matchy or clashing. Love this post and I look forward to your future combinations!

    What a great idea for a Pattern Play feature! I’ve fallen in love with this damask print ( for a pair of curtains, but I’m struggling to come up with coordinating patterned fabrics that aren’t matchy-matchy. I would love to see what combinations you could come up with!

    Love this idea! Would love to see an idea around a particular print….I’m trying to design my living room around Van Gogh’s “The Olive Trees”….would love window treatment ideas and floor coverings.

  10. Fun and informative post idea!!! I love mixing patterns, and have no fear of it. But I am struggling with my dining/living area bc they are so open to each other. Can’t decide if I should be designing as one large room? If I have one dominant color and pops of a second color?! I’m just stuck actually. Road trip to Texas Camila?! 😉

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
