Layering

I bet you thought I was going to talk about fashion, didn't you???

Ha! I tricked you! Probably because it's been a *VERY* long time since I talked about interiors on this blog...which is a shame really considering I love it so much and I'm pretty sure that was kinda the purpose of starting this blog originally...

Crap happens, right? (c:

Anywho, I have just been so giddy over all the unbelievably excellent patterns getting all moshed together and looking gorgeous. Nothing like a good pattern-kick-to-the-face, hmm? 


Definitely a dope combo going on here, especially with the portrait goodness.

Toile, floral, and zig zag...yes, please!

Yes, I would sleep in a crib to own this room. Is that even a question???

And last, but certainly not least, the Grand Poobah of pattern layering: Miss Jaime Meares herself:

What about you??? Any pattern layering going on that I should know about?

No pattern layering here and this house is in DESPERATE need of it. What is the trick to it? Just buy every fabric that you love and put them together? I've got the mid-winter blues and need some bold colors and patterns to shake things up around here. Thanks for sharing these inspiring images :)

I am obsessed with all of these images! I love layering, and bought new bedding over the weekend. A mix and match of amazing Indian hand block printed bedding and pillows, it is so yummy! Be sure to check out my blog today as I will be posting pictures of it there - all by Kerry Cassill!! Xo

I totally dig the layered look - it's like JCrew meets interiors. I just suck at it :D

I love the look of mixed patterns, but not sure I'm any good at it. I also need the stools in the first pic!

Jenna said...

I'm still struggling to be bold and introduce one pattern, but you've definitely got some great inspiration with those pictures!!

I'm a huge fan of pattern layering, now I just need to get my hubs on board! Love that little girls nursery, hello uterus back flip!

I love pattern layering and am at the point where I find it difficult to use less than three patterns for a room (especially pillows - just can't bring myself to choose just four plain coloured pillows - doesn't happen)! Love these pics xx
