In interior design, mixing patterns is one of the more advanced things that you can learn to do. Doing it well can be the difference between designing the room of your dreams and going back to the drawing board. The first thing you'll need to know is this: Patterns don't have to match. I repeat, patterns do not have to match. Like with many elements of decorating they simply have to coordinate with and complement each other, and there are any number of ways for that to happen.
Repurpose Thrift Store Items. Thrift store items have come a long way when it comes to people's perceptions. Second-hand stores are finally being appreciated as wonderful places to find unique and interesting items for your home - and a great find is something worth bragging about! Often it takes a little work on your part as many items require a little upcycling (new hardware, a fresh coat of paint, new upholstery, a little sanding and staining, etc.) but great thrift store finds can save you money and give your home tons of character.
For special accents on upholstered pieces, add ruffles, pleats, buttons, ribbon, or cording. Contrasting colored details incorporate the full range of colors in the room. To achieve a casual look, pieces are often long, large, and horizontal, rather than vertical and tall and petite. Tables are chunky and of a large scale, which gives a comfortable feeling, while providing space for storage and spreading out. This helps to create a restful look.
Ornate frames. Thrift stores, yard sales and discount stores are a great source of ornate frames to be painted to display reproduction postcards and greeting cards in nostalgic designs. Pressed flowers can also be framed and displayed in groups on your walls or on table tops.
