If you’re wondering to yourself what patterns go well together — well, might we recommend the same pattern, twice? It’s not quite as easy as it sounds, but don’t stress, we’ll guide you through it.
To get a pattern-on-pattern working together without issue, we recommend making sure they’re of different scales. So mini-spots with larger ones; small detailed florals with big, abstract blooms; bold colour-blocked stripes with fine yarn-dyed ones — you get the picture. Playing with different textures as well, for an additional point of contrast, is helpful here.
Bolton, a piece we’ve discussed with its Prince of Wales check, pairs well with… you guessed it, another Prince of Wales check like the Briones throw. The checks are one, of different sizes; two, of different colours and three, they’re noticeably different textures — one a cotton yarn dye, the other 100% wool.
