4 mixed prints we dare you to try

Today we’re exploring how mixed prints can modernize even the most traditional country decor themes, and how you don’t have to completely redesign a space in order to transform it.

When it comes to home decor, it’s safe to say we’re in the vintage camp. You won’t find a lot of funky squiggles and abstract geometric shapes here, and if you’re reading this, that’s probably just fine with you. But that doesn’t mean we’re behind the times. Even the most traditional country decor themes can rely on daring elements and boldly coordinated mixed prints.

The key to mixing your prints

  • * One print should be more simple and subtle, and the other print can be a littler rowdier.
  • * Match colors, not prints
  • * Coordinate prints with different size scales
  • * A single stripe, or simply striped pattern can be treated as a solid, or neutral pattern

Here are some ways you can blend patterns and incorporate mixed prints into some of our favorite country decor collections:

Grain Stripe with Summerville

Pewter Valance - SummervillePewter Striped Bedding

The single stripe in our Grain Stripe collection offers a simple design that’s easy to mix with other prints, like a plaid or even a differently patterned stripe. It’s the coordinating color palette that brings it all together.

Blackstone cotton braided rugs with Blackstone cotton valance

Woven Rag RugBlack plaid valance

These two coordinating prints are actually made for each other, so perhaps they’re not really that daring? But the black and tans do make a bold statement, and as mentioned above, the different scales of the plaid patterns are what adds character.

Earth tones are some of the easiest to coordinate because they don’t have to be a perfect match to look good. That’s why country braided rugs are so popular. You have warmth, charm, comfort, and they coordinate well with a variety of country patterns. Just add burlap!

Candlewicking florals + Mineral Stripe

Florals + Stripes = LOVE. This is probably my favorite way to mix prints. You can really get creative and put a modern twist on traditional patterns. And the florals in our Candlewicking collection are subtle and easily coordinate with a variety of earthy tones.

we love to hear from you! How do you mix country decor prints in your spaces?

Candlewicking Valance

History lesson! For those new to this style, it mimics a 19th century American style of embroidery. According to Needlepointers.com, it is believed that candlewicking or whitework (named for the distinctive white thread on white fabric) was conceived by the women traveling westward. Because thread and other sewing materials were very limited, the style made use of the colonial knot, which required less thread, was sturdier and held up to heavy use and washing.
