Pattern and print are as necessary to House of Holland as breathing air is to the rest of us. In fact, if you broke Henry in half, he’d probably be multi-coloured right through his middle. Whether you’re a lover of bright and brash and embrace it with all the enthusiasm of a child in a sweet shop, or you swoon from afar but find yourself totally flummoxed as to how your incorporate it into your home, then let us direct you straight to the horse’s mouth. Here is Henry and his definitive guide to embracing print and pattern in your abode.
- Keep the canvas (floors and walls) plain and add a riot of print and pattern through soft furnishings.
Neutral walls, colourful textiles
- Experiment with print and pattern on smaller items like cushions and throws that are less permanent and can be changed more regularly if you get bored.
A bit of neon does you good.
Cast Your Net throw.
- Don’t be afraid to clash and mix your prints. Take inspiration from your wardrobe and dress your home as you’d dress yourself.
