A design book filled with beautiful photography and clear ideas for how to use pattern to decorate your home. If you focus on pattern, from texture and color to furniture and textiles, everything else will fall into place. Pattern is the strongest element in any room. In Living with Pattern, Rebecca Atwood demystifies how to use that element, a design concept that often confounds and confuses, demonstrating how to seamlessly mix and layer prints throughout a house. She covers pattern usage you probably already have, such as on your duvet cover or in the living room rug, and she also reveals the unexpected places you might not have thought to add it: bathroom tiles, an arrangement of book spines in a reading nook, or windowpane gridding in your entryway. This stunning book showcases distinct uses of pattern in homes all over the country to inspire you to realize that an injection of pattern can enliven any space, helping to make it uniquely yours. From the Hardcover edition.

Through the ages, we have learned from ancient cultures that color, pattern, and arrangement of possessions have a profound affect on our mood. Ultimately, the residual effects of a serene environment will overflow into every aspect of your life. Stress seems to be a universal by-product of modern life. But crafting a satisfying environment in your home is one of the most effective ways of minimizing its effects.
