There’s something so refreshing and fun about mixing happy prints. What are happy prints? Well, they’re vibrant, playful and flirty. They make your eyes dance and your rooms shine. And two of my favorites include: chevron and polka dots. They also happen to compliment and enhance each other quite nicely when paired together. They’re complete opposites but they know how to mix, match and transform a space into something magical and special. Let’s take a look at some ideas and inspiration!
1.Chilled Out Nursery.
This lightly-hued nursery feels as relaxed as a rainy day, but with the addition of the two playful prints, it adds a much needed style and pop. They play off each other well while still keep the room subtle and charming.
2. Funky, Frilly Bedroom.
Perfect for a girlish teen or tween with an alternative spirit, again these prints play off each other well while accented the space and style with ease. They add texture and personality while not becoming too overbearing in these softer shades.
3. Traditional Popping Living Room.
Even a traditional, cozy living room can use a bit of eye candy. With just the simple addition of a polka-dot pillow and chevron rug, you’re living room goes from bland to fashion-forward.
4. Dainty, Delicate Accents.
It could be in your home office or in the guest room, use this photo as inspiration to what an accent can do to a space. Even loud, happy prints like these can create a textural, artistic and delicate feel.
5. Flirty, Sassy Dorms.
The smaller patterns helps to create a feminine and youthful style. How perfect is this combination for your very first dorm room?
6. Mid-Mod Living Room.
A living room with a retro, mid-century modern flair, well, it can use a bit of prints to jazz it up too. And yet again, a polka-dotesqe throw pillow and chevron rug works like magic.
7. Happy, Vibrant Nursery.
Set in the right colors and in the right size (the smaller, the louder!), you can easily create a playful, happy and vibrant nursery for your baby girl or baby boy!
8. Sophisticated, French Bedrooms.
The chandelier adds an air of French inspiration but the playfulness of the polka-dots and chevron helps to create more of a personality and personal style. Not to mention the color combination, it’s beautiful!
9. Rusticly Subtle Bedrooms.
The bigger the print, the calmer and more subtle. Dipped in a neutral shade and you’ve got interest and texture without the playful fussiness.
10. Hot Dorm Styles.
A bit retro, a bit modern and a lot of bold choices. We love this classic red, black and white dorm room complete with chevron and polka dot prints making it quite sassy and dramatic.
