Pattern Play

home decorVirginia HartComment


In decorating a new home, I don't really go about things with a plan or theme. I buy what I love and let it work together. Risky? Probably. While I typically gravitate towards things like all-white bedding, I'm having a moment with patterns. Lots and lots of patterns. And I don't care if they technically match as long as I love them. I might have ordered curtains with elephants all over them that will either be fabulous or quickly returned. Sidenote: I bought a hamper this weekend at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and I was so proud that I put it together myself in one try (unlike this project that we had to re-build twice!) that I didn't even realize it was kinda big. Ok, really big. Patrick came home and just stood there staring at it. "You bought an industrial-sized hamper with four-wheel drive?" I hate when he's right, but I was crying I was laughing so hard. So yes, that has already been returned. We'll see about the curtains. Anyway, we also have a couch being delivered soon (words cannot express our excitement) that's a really pretty light grey neutral color which meannns we need fun throw pillows. As much as I want to whip out my sewing machine that surfaced in the move and re-learn how to make my own, I really don't have time for that.  (Sigh. One day, sewing machine, one day!) Good thing there are a ton of fun options out there. Here are some patterns I'm loving lately!
