Mary Veltri:When mixing and matching odd patterns – working with odd numbers is a good rule. Use a minimum of 3. The key is varying scale from small to large. Choosing the large pattern carefully as it will make the strongest statement.”

Kristin Yannaccone: “I love to mix and match patterns in a room.  The best way that I have found to do this is to coordinate the scale and colors in the patterns.  I like to start with a large-scale pattern and add a small and medium pattern to the grouping. Then I make sure the colors in the patterns coordinate and flow from pattern to pattern.  This will create a vignette that is most pleasing to the eye, yet still very interesting.”
