Interior designers know how to select pieces that fit the scale of the room — and when it is acceptable to work outside of the scale. Ultimately. there is no right or wrong; if you like the way a piece feels in your space. then it is the right scale for you.Keep the Rule of Three in mind.Design rules seem to be made to be broken. but this classic is certainly worth mentioning.
Don't be afraid to look at some outside-of-the-box sources to find the best buys. Keep an eye out at local antique stores. thrift shops. yard sales and flea markets. You never know what treasures you'll stumble upon (provided they're in sturdy. functional condition. of course!).Once you bring your finds home. all you need is a few coats of paint to tie them together.
Incorporating pattern is another way you can bring together the hodgepodge feeling that sometimes comes with cottage style designs. Historically. floral patterns were very popular. but to make the look more modern. consider using a chevron or geometric pattern.Cottage looks are all about embracing comfort. so you have plenty of opportunities to work pattern into the room through textiles.
The key to that is knowing how to create groupings.There's no definitive rules on this. but in general. designers recommend sticking to odd-numbered groups of items and playing around with arrangements of varying directions and heights. If you find yourself getting stuck. take a moment to search for some design inspiration and pattern your aesthetic after those looks.
