Mistake #5: Treating Different Patterns Equally

If you used them all in the same quantity, the space would feel hectic. Create a visual hierarchy. Traditionally, the larger print would be used in the largest proportion, but that's not always the case. You'll be naturally inclined to choose a smaller pattern for a dining chair and larger pattern for a sofa simply because of the size of the object. Don't be afraid to exaggerate the opposite and go for a big, bold pattern on a dining chair or pillow.
