Mixing Bold Color Palettes - How to Make It Work

Looking to create a space for yourself that is an outstanding example of what a contemporary design style should be? If so, you probably want a design with an eclectic appeal that brings together different patterns and colors to accomplish a beautiful result, making sure it does not end in a chaotic mess isn’t easy and is worthwhile to get the help of a professional interior design team. Our team break it down on the different approaches to achieve such result.

Mix Opposites

A fool-proof way to make patterns and colours work, mixing opposites.

A large floral pattern on one item will work really well with a tiny floral pattern on another one. Navy elements are going to look beautiful and elevated alongside cream decorations.

High contrast decorating can work really well because it creates dynamic interiors. Elegant stuff works really well with more down-to-earth practical elements. Rough and refined patterns will also make each other noticeable.

Duotone Color Schemes with Geometric Patterns

Bold and impressive doesn’t necessarily mean ornate or colourful. In fact, one really modern and impressive execution relies on simple classics – black and white colour scheme and geometric patterns.

A monochromatic room can often look very sterile and cold. True, black and white elements are definitely stylish and sophisticated. Often, however, they lack soul and character.

Bringing geometric patterns to the picture will solve that problem. Choose one anchor and a couple of additional patterned pieces that are less obtrusive and more complementary.

Similar Colours on different focal points

Having different patterns that all have a similar size will make the eye wonder. Your room will lack a clear focal point and that’s a problem. Visual cues are always utilized to direct views towards the most important elements. On the other hand, different patterns executed in different colours will give you a headache each time you enter the room. When pattern is the star, colour should play a supporting role.

A professionally curated colour scheme will make it much easier to work with different shapes and prints. This is probably one of the projects you should put in the capable hands of professionals in order to enjoy freedom and versatility when choosing home décor later on.


Bold interior designs do require a lot of work but the payoff is significant. This is why you should take your time, enjoy the process and have fun picking the different pieces that will work well together. Having trouble approaching the design of your dream home?
