How to Choose a Pattern - Home Decorating 101
Sure, we have all hearing about patterns, talk about, choose some when buying clothes or accessories for the house, but have you notice that maybe there is one dress that you feel more drawn to? Perhaps the polka dots? Or the striped one? let's talk about more in deep
with so many patterns out there we may get lost in what we feel connected with, and just go with what we think will work, instead of choosing something that is "really you."
let's try to identify what is that, that you like concerning patterns, so you don't feel like changing your closet or your home style every week instead you can feel more identified with the space you live in, or are decorating

First and foremost take a look at your surrounding space, is there any object, wall art, pillow, that you feel are more attracted? Think about your closet, what's your favorite piece or pieces? Maybe even on the accessories that you wear every day and you like the most
A good exercise could be taking a look at your favorite pictures on social media (hilarious but useful) what your favorite photos are?
Do you notice anything comparable among those objects/images that you have selected?
Like I said there is a never-ending list of patterns out there, but if you get to identified the basic shape of what you like, that will help you to go a long way, so here is what you need to pay attention to:
Round shapes (dots)

Animal prints, and florals/organic (nature inspired)
