I'm usually a pattern phobe, finding it hard to commit to anything other than my beloved streamlined and uncomplicated spaces. But I need a little design spice in my life and after seeing these two dining rooms, I think I'm ready to take the plunge into pattern.
In small, contained doses of course: pattern on some lamps, in a painting, or even with a sheet of wallpaper. I think I can handle that.
As a space that doesn't get used on a daily basis, a formal dining room is the perfect place to experiment with too. Are you listening, future San Francisco home?
