It’s that time of year when our attention is drawn back indoors. And what do we see? Pillows that need tossing, bedding looking awfully tired and dining decor that’s just not appetizing. It’s obvious something needs to be done, but where to start?

Our advice: update your rooms through the introduction of texture and dimension. Layering patterns and colors create interiors with style and sophistication. Read on for tips that will inspire you to transform every room in your house, one pattern at a time.

Liven Up Your Living Space

Rotating your throw pillow collection from season to season is a great way to keep your room looking its best. The trick is to mix small-, medium- and large-scale patterns to keep from looking cluttered.

Bold Bedroom Decor

Have fun with pattern and texture while staying within one or two complementary colors. Layering bedding sets for tone-on-tone style is a great way to create a dream-worthy destination. To avoid pattern clashing, use at least one neutral to keep the look elegant and relaxing.

Keep Your Kids Room Vibrant

Let them express themselves though a playful mix of patterns and textures. Use ruffles, faux furs, embroidery and quilting to add delightful dimension. Decor tip! A pop of metallic gives their room just the right amount of bling!

Dine in Style

Dine in style by weaving together harmonious details in rugs, textiles, furniture and accessories. Let your dining room furniture set the tone for your makeover, adding pieces that play well with that theme.

Decor tip, add multiple light sources to each space! This feature will give your room an added sense of dimension. Pendants, wall sconces and table lamps on dimmer pair beautifully with a touch of candlelight.
