Prints are a cool way to make your space more eye-catching, especially if it’s all-neutral and not bold. But mixing and matching them may be tricky, it’s hard to achieve a cohesive and stylish look, and all those matchy-matchy spaces are too boring. So, how to mix and match prints in a contemporary way to make the space look cool? Here are some ideas.

Use Only One Print

If you have only one print in mind, you can stick only to it skipping all the rest, so your room will look neutral and simple but with a bright touch of this print. It can be incorporated into your décor in many ways including edgy wallpaper, a bright printed sofa, tiles on a kitchen island, a large printed rug or curtains or even pillows – textiles are always the easiest way to rock prints and they are easy to change anytime you get tired of them.

Pair Dramatic Prints With Simpler Ones

Even if you’ve chosen a dramatic and bold print, you can incorporate more of them but the key to a cohesive look is to pair your prints done in the colors that are similar. You may also rock larger printed pieces as dominating ones, and the rest of the prints will be smaller and secondary, it will work in a stylish way, which is very popular right now –  many designers prefer this way.
