14 Use of Pattern Too much pattern can make a room too busy and uncomfortable.

15 Use of Pattern A room without pattern may be too stark or lacking in character.

16 Use of Pattern Successful pattern combinations feel comfortable.

17 Use of Pattern Incompatible pattern combinations create an uneasy feeling.

18 To achieve a feeling of correctness in combining patterns:
Maintain a consistent mood. Don’t mix formal naturalistic with geometric Evaluate the placement of emphasis and avoid too many patterns in one area. One bold pattern on a large area works better than 2-3 smaller patterns scattered throughout the room. The size of the pattern should correspond to the size of the room and its windows. Small scale patterns are often used in cozy rooms. Large scale patterns for spacious rooms since these make a room appear smaller.

19 Pattern Assignment Create a Pattern Collage Portfolio Page displaying each of the pattern types: Naturalistic/Realistic Conventional/Stylized Abstract Geometric Each sample should be labeled and have a brief definition of the type of pattern it is.
