The Most Important Thing to Consider When You Are Creating A Pattern is that it should be unique. It will be the first thing that makes your pattern stand out from the rest. The Second Thing to Consider is the texture of the pattern. You can use a variety of textures, but it’s best to choose one that matches your pattern.

Associate prints and textures:

To bring character to your sets, do not hesitate to associate different prints and textures. In this way, you can create interesting contrasts that will give a touch of originality to your decoration.

You can for example mix a smooth print with a textured pattern or use two colors in contrast, such as pink and white. Do not hesitate to play on the texture to obtain an aged effect: materials like leather, jute canvas or wooden boards are ideal for this. For the contrast to be successful, your pattern must be printed in larger format than that of the bottom and/or on a smaller surface than this (like a wooden board for example).




Play with contrasts and associations:

Contrasts and associations are two essential elements that will help you create unique, original and personal parts. Play on contrasts using different colors for the wall, a different paint for the front door or a different floor covering.

Associations sometimes allow you to play with shapes, materials and colors. They bring relief to your entire interior.
