Three Steps to Master the Mixing of Patterns

Play with Scale

Patterns blend together if they’re all the same size and look like a smattering of who knows what.  Try picking a small repeating pattern and pairing it with statement large scale pattern. This will help highlight each pattern! We used the Global Tapestry Aquamarine Lotus Accent Plate and the Garnet Dessert Plate to change up the scale!

Pick a Color Scheme

Pick a color scheme and highlight those colors in your table! We used a mix of turquoise, maroon, and gold. Sticking to these colors helped us choose the tablecloth, flowers, and cutlery.  The Global Tapestry Collection includes these colors and we loved using the Aquamarine Lotus Mug and Aquamarine Lotus Dinner Plate to highlight these colors.

Layer Other Elements

We included patterns on the tablecloth, dishes, and napkins so we layered some other elements to break them up! Use a natural placemat with a new texture to create space between the patterned dishes and the patterned tablecloth.  We also used natural foliage of the season on the table to create even more contrast and depth!
