Ways to use Pattern in your Home & 25 Beautiful Homes Feature!

It is with sheer joy and excitement that I write this post today.

You see, never in my wildest dreams would I imagine that this day would come.

The day when an Interior that I designed would be featured in a National Publication but here it is. I wanted to share with you that our Stamford Brook project has been featured in this months edition of UK Publication 25 Beautiful Homes.

This is a major milestone for our Studio and we are honoured to have been chosen to be featured. I wanted to thank our clients who opened up their home for the shoot and for their generosity in providing the magazine with the story behind their build process.

If you would like to read more about the our design process and to see more of the property, take a look here.

A part of the design of the property we incorporated a mixture of patterns throughout the home, so I thought I’d share some tips on how we used patterns within our latest Stamford Brook project and how you can integrate them into your home.


Choose a Patterned Fabric Sofa 
The Victorian tile pattern of this sofa adds interest in this otherwise white room. We added small patterned details into the room via the wall light shades and the cushions . The rest of the pattern is prominent in the herringbone floor and sofa. Making a room that feels both relaxing and yet interesting.
Mix and Match patterns in your bathroom
In the family bathroom, we used a patchwork tile on the floor that was a subtle colour and then matched the patchwork with a bold green metro tile that was laid in a brickwork style pattern. This combination works well because on it’s own the patchwork pattern would have been overwhelming to the eye, however when paired with a solid colour, the overall scheme feels more balanced.
Create a relaxed and yet interesting bedroom
Although there are a lot of patterns in this bedroom, we were keen to ensure that the room was still a calm oasis. We did this by restricting the number of colours within the scheme to Blue and Grey. This helped to tone down the patterns that existed in the headboard, the panelling and curtains making the space feel both interesting but not chaotic.
Start Small
If you are very nervous about using pattern. Start small by incorporating pattern into really easy to change items such as throw cushions. You will find that after you take the first step, then you will become as addicted as me and begin to incorporate them into all of your furniture, fixtures and fittings.
Have Fun and go for it
And my final piece of advice is to just have fun with it. The most interesting homes are those that go beyond the standard white box and embrace a little personality. Go ahead and introduce pattern into your homes and you won’t regret it. I promise.
