Large Scale Patterns

September 5, 2022
Bedroom - bedroom idea in Miami

Scale has become an increasing element in fashion, as well as in the home.  We are  enjoying large scale patterns in our art, fabrics as well as our wall paper.  The examples I have chosen also are saturated with color.  The Mater Bedroom wallpaper is from Designer’s Guild, an English fabric house.  We selected this wallpaper to bring summer into the space.  It picks out all of the colors in the rug and was a perfect match with the existing paint.  Lucky us!


If you are looking for an easy update to your home, wallpaper could be an answer.  Just skim coat the walls, a quick primer coat, contact a wall paper hanger and you have a new, fresh background in your space.

Most patterns are large scale, in keeping with many developments that we are seeing in all aspects of design.  Area Environments works with artists, blowing paintings up to full wall size. When purchasing you give them the dimensions of the space and they scale to the project.  They work with an expanding number of artists.  There is always something new to enjoy.  The large peonies and the abstract can be scaled to your wall.


Designer fabric has many options with large scale patterns.  They range from traditional to abstract.  It can be a challenge using a large scale pattern in Upholstery.  This Pierre Frey pattern is a fanciful example of a drapery pattern.
