There is a delicate art to pattern mixing. When dressing yourself in two different patterns you have to make sure they don't conflict with each other. The patterns need to almost match and be each others ying and yang. For the spring 2013 Vuitton show, Marc Jacobs took the classic check pattern and created a collection of mix-and-match pieces using different sizes of the same standout print.
When dressing your tabletop, the same rules apply. The patterns should be distinctive but should also have some matching characteristics. Recently we took a classic checkered floor and added our fabulous patterned poufs, white leather CoCo Sofas, mirrored coffee tables, and bold pillows in contrasting black and white patterns...
Like Coco Chanel said, the combination of black and white will never go out of style. For your next event, let us create look of patterned perfection using this classic color palette.
You know Coco would approve!
