Stripes, chevrons, ikat—piling on patterns doesn’t have to be intimidating. Take it from designer Justina Blakeney, who masterfully layers colourful motifs to achieve her trademark bohemian look. “Staying within a certain colour palette lends cohesion,” she says. “If I’m using a green, leafy wallpaper that has gold accents, I’ll look for another pattern with those same tones, like an emerald-green geometric rug, or drapes embroidered with turmeric stitching.” Scroll to shop some of our favourite eye-catching geometric prints and patterns to decorate with.
