Happy Weekend: Mixing Patterns

I love that feeling when you awake on the weekend with no time pressures, just two whole days stretching out ahead of you to make of what you choose. In fact, us Brits have a three day weekend as Monday is a bank holiday – hurrah! I have a little bit of work to do but I hope to at least take some of Monday off for some baking, reading and relaxing. I also have a stack of new interiors books I’d like to sit down and read. No doubt they will be packed full of inspiring spaces, just like the bedroom seen here. I love how the scheme successfully incorporates multiple patterns without feeling too ‘busy’. This has been achieved by keeping the colour ways from within the same palettes – a good tip should you try to replicate the look at home. What are your weekend plans? I hope you have something fun planned? I’ll be back here tomorrow with some of my favourite links from across the web, so see you then!

    I hope you do get to take a day off, sunshine! As for the patterned pic, above, I love a little pattern mashing myself. Have a great weekend!

    Such an inspiring pic! I love the look of mismatched textiles, especially in a bedroom! Today we're going to the cinema in the evening, I'm really looking forward to it!

    When I have a stack of books to wander through, it's tough to decide if I want it to be rainy so I can stay inside, or gloriously sunny to sit on the patio.
