"A home is meant to be a reflection of the owner's story--it's the one place where we get to create the environment. Pattern is a key element in the process of communicating personality, aspirations, and experiences, adding authenticity and interest. In Living with Pattern, Rebecca Atwood travels room by room throughout the house--the expected main rooms as well as smaller, not-to-be-forgotten spaces like reading nooks and foyers--showing how to use pattern to shape interiors. She includes information on how to create different levels of pattern, how color works, how prints can mix and match, how to enliven elements already in the home, how to craft custom patterned pieces, and more. Above all, Atwood makes clear that pattern can be practical and completely usable. Filled with soft yet stunning photography of genuine homes throughout the country, Living with Pattern is the road map to a rich and layered home"-- Provided by publisher.
