Holding patterns... how to create individuality
When it comes to interiors, whether you're a play-it-safer or you crave a minimalist aesthetic, patterns aren't something you'll typically veer towards. They take a certain amount of confidence, as well as a willingness to commit - unless you're prepared to change up your decor as often as you change your mood, of course. The thing is, it's just too easy to default towards that which is plain, and even easier to shy away from strong colours, but the right pattern in your bedroom or living room could be the key to the individuality you're after. For those who balk at the idea of pattern overload, or fear you'll wind up with a house that resembles your dear old aunt Esther's, worry not. Here's how to get it right.
