Lately, I've been inspired by how fashion bloggers (Le Catch and Lovely Pepa are a few favorites) mix and match patterns. We all know there are no rules in fashion, so the idea of a striped T-shirt worn with a floral skirt, for instance, is beyond chic even in this ever-changing world of style. So why not carry that principle into decorating? I personally go with how home products make me feel, rather than dwelling so much on whether they complement each other in the traditional sense. It's all about what you like, right? So go for a bold paint color on your walls, that zebra print rug, that luxurious faux fur throw...you get the idea.
