I believe there can never be enough prints in a room. The mixing, matching and layering of prints is an art form in itself, giving an interior a warm, cozy and collected look. From white, modern spaces that layer on prints with basic furnishings and accessories, to rooms with a mix of patterns that travel from the walls to the floors, here are some of my favorite gorgeous printed rooms that are sure to inspire.

Australian designer Diane Bergeron has a knack for finding amazing textiles and curating a room with them. Here, two chairs in purple ikat upholstery and another in leafy blooms sit across from each other on a black and white rug. The stark white walls and dark wood floors allow the mix of prints and colors to stand together without competing with one another.

HGTV Design Star Emily Henderson has an incredible eye for mixing prints and patterns. This reading nook featuring a tartan covered wall and striped wingback chair shows how a mix of bold patterns can generate beautiful masculine appeal.

And there are so many ways to bring prints home. How about a medallion-patterned rug like this one for your living room? Designer Philip Gorrivan‘s pairing with an unconventional wallcovering in fuchsia makes this space really pop.

Even a mostly monochromatic space can come alive when a variety of prints are brought into an interior. From the sofa, to the wall, to that cute striped lampshade, designer Deborah Buck‘s living room feels fresh and exciting with its variety of prints in a golden hue.

Finally, as seen in HGTV’s Secrets from a Stylist, Emily Henderson captures one of my favorite ways to bring a mix of prints home. The daring metallic wallpaper by Joy Deangdeelert Cho and the Madeline Weinrib rug are equally classic. Together they give this living room a ton of pizazz.

    Personally, I do not care for mixing prints, to me it is not warm and welcoming, rather it proclaims you can't afford matching/coordinating pieces. With so many prints in one room, where do you focus your eyes? Bring in another color or let your artwork take center stage.

    Love the post and completely agree! We're huge Emily Henderson and Kelley Wearstler fans, and thus huge fans of mixing patterns. We tried to map out a guide for people to play with adding patterns on our blog: http://goo.gl/Yog1W

    Pictures/rooms 1 & 2 are OK. I especially like #2. Rooms 3 &4 are awful. I am one who LOVES lots of pattern but not rooms 3 & 4. Room 5 is OK but really too dated for my taste. I prefer rooms that look like they have been put together over time with a timeless appeal. Sorry to be so negative, but that's my opinion. Thanks
