Do you think there will ever come a day when we’ve just had enough of pattern on pattern? This is a thought I’ve been having more and more lately as I’ve been hitting shops and magazines for décor and style inspiration and continually stumble upon stripes and wax prints and geometrics and plaids. Yes, I do partake (peep this recent find) but it’s a conscious effort to remind myself that pattern, and pattern mixing in particular, are visuals that may be best if consumed in moderation. It’s like chocolate. Chocolate is one of my BFFs, but I have put distance between us because while my taste buds rejoice in it, my booty not so much. What say you? Keep the pattern coming or let’s fall back a bit and add in more solids and neutrals. To each her own. In the meantime, peruse Gwen Stefani’s (love her!) latest editorial in Elle UK.
