Q: Any thoughts on mixing animal print and florals in the same room? Need interior decorating advice!
I was thinking of adding two animal print chairs to a room with a floral couch. Any thoughts? Thank you.
A: Think about SCALE
That is tough without seeing your choices. You can mix and match florals and prints that agree/ coordinate in color and scale. Scale is important when choosing print furniture. Is the floral a smaller scale and the animal print larger? That will work, if the colors are right. Then make sure your accents aren't loud. Use them to tone it down, if you need to. Maybe your pillows are solid colors and your walls are neutral. -That would work!

A: Mixing Patterns of Fabrics in a Room
Mixing animal print fabrics with other fabric patterns in a room can work very well depending on the fabric. Mixing with a floral pattern can work depending on the sizes of the patterns, the colors of the animal print and florals and the style of the room. It can create a very interesting, eclectic room to mix and match, however, you must be careful to choose colors in the patterns that compliment one another, the colors of the patterns do not have to match, they just need to look good together. If you have a large, bold floral pattern on your sofa then the animal print on your chairs needs to be a similar size and also more bold. If you have a sofa with a lot of detail and small florals two chairs in an animal print will most likely not look good, too much detail , too busy and the eyes lose focus. Then the room will look overwhelming and not balanced.
