Patterns and Textures: Adding Style and Comfort to Your Home

Patterns can turn your home from dull to delightful, bringing in a whole new vibe. They're like the personality of your place, expressing your style and making rooms more interesting. In this guide, we'll dive into the world of patterns in interior design and show you easy ways to make them work in your home.

Getting to Know Patterns

Patterns are like the different outfits your home can wear. They can be simple or bold, classic or modern. Each one has its own character and can change how a room feels.

Why Patterns Matter

Before we get into the fun part, let's talk about how patterns affect us. Some make us feel calm, like flowers and nature. Others, like stripes or bold prints, can add energy to a room. Knowing this helps the Model Home Furnishings Frisco designers help you choose patterns that match how you want a room to feel.

Easy Ways to Use Patterns in Your Home

  • Start Small with Accessories: You don't need to go big at first. You can easily add patterns with things like throw pillows, rugs, or curtains. It's a small change that can make a big difference.  The Model Home Furnishings showroom is filled with accessories such as these and we’d love to help you find your favorites.
  • Mix and Match: Don't be afraid to mix different patterns. Try combining a floral chair with a striped rug. Mixing things up can make a room more interesting.   When you come visit our Frisco Showroom and Design Center you will see firsthand that we do not shy away from any opportunity to mix things up.  You will never see a “bedroom or a dining set”in our showroom because we believe that it is the mixture of various tones, textures, finishes, etc that elevates the space and takes it from ho-hum average to show stopping.
  • Make a Statement with Wallpaper: Want to make one wall stand out? Use patterned wallpaper or tiles. It's an easy way to add something special to a room.
  • Add Texture: Mix patterns with different textures. A soft blanket on a patterned sofa or a woven rug with a geometric design can make a room feel cozy.  Another element our design team loves to incorporate into any space that needs that extra little something, is layering rugs.  This simple trick adds a ton of warmth, personality, and interest in the room, especially if adding a wall treatment is not a feasible option.  Adding different patterns and textures with a rug, pillow, or accent piece is one of the quickest and easiest ways to elevate any room without spending a fortune.
  • Keep Colors in Mind: Stick to colors that go well together. This helps different patterns look good together and creates a nice overall look.  It’s never relaxing to walk into a space that has no cohesion and makes you feel like you just stepped off the tilt-a-whirl at the county fair.
  • Bold Furniture Choices: If you're feeling bold, get furniture with standout patterns. A colorful chair or couch can be the star of the room.  At Model Home Furnishings Friso we not only have access to the vibrant color options available, but we also carry several custom lines with dynamic hues and patterns, as well as fabulous “One-of-a-kind” options as well.
  • Create Your Own Style: Once you’ve really put some thought into  what you like, our design team can help you find the perfect Custom prints or unique patterns  that will help you make your home feel more like you.


Suggestions on How to Choose Patterns in Different Rooms

  • Living Room: Make your living room cozy by adding patterns with pillows, curtains, or a colorful rug.
  • Bedroom: Get a comfortable and stylish bedroom by using patterned bedding, a cool wall feature or art piece, and a fun shag, fur or high-pile wool rug.  These options will really soften your bedroom and help turn it into your very own private sanctuary.
  • Dining Room: Bring some extra fun to your meals with a patterned tablecloth or add some of the interesting chair options you’ll find at our Frisco furniture showroom.  
  • Home Office: Make your workspace exciting with patterned walls, desk accessories, unique rug or a cool chair.
