7 must have patterns for your home!


It looks like bold patterns are in right now and I am loving it! You can use patterns in so many different items. It can be on a rug, wallpaper, lampshade, wall art, cushions etc.

TIP – If you have used a pattern in one room, try not to use it again in another room. You don’t want to look like you are trying to hard !

Have a look at some of the patterns that have caught my eye recently.


Plaid AKA Tartan

The Scottish pattern is proving very popular. I personally love it on bed spreads and cushions. It’s a cosy pattern, very homely. Probably used most during the winter/Christmas period, especially in its traditional green and red version.



Definitely a trend that is here to stay. I love it because I am of African heritage and it screams culture!


Faux Bois

This is a pattern that imitates wood. I love it because of it reminds me of nature and is paired well with earth tones. If you use this pattern, consider using rustic accessories to complete the look.


Ikat patterns

This pattern is as a result of a dyeing technique  that employs a resist dyeing process. It is one of the oldest forms of textile decoration.



The next three are preppy in style and really compliment the summer season. Best used for accent pieces.

Greek key



Chevron (Everyone on Etsy seems to be selling a chevron print accessory these days !)
