Some stylish ways to use pattern in your home

1Print and repeat

Choose one shape to use all around the room. Here, block rectangles decorate cushions, flooring and ceramics in a mix of soft pastels and bold blue.

2 New perspective

Two wallpapers in different patterns but toning shades create a stunning effect – pale wood furniture stops the look from overwhelming the room

3Draw the line

Combine straight, curved and angular lines with splashes of colour for a graphic look, keeping the background understated.
