Bold colors are striking, but patterns create a sense of energy. Depending on how they are used, they can make a room playful and exciting or calm and tranquil. Patterns add great dimension and comfort to a space. Keep things interesting with an accent chair or ottoman in a dramatic pattern to make a statement. Artworks and rugs are I think the most effective ways to introduce bold color and pattern into a room. I love a bold wallpaper in a small powder room. Mixing and matching patterns is also perfectly acceptable. It might be helpful to start by building upon one bold pattern in a room. Depending on the tone you wish to set, add patterns that either contrast or complement it. To make multiple patterns work together, you need to make sure you are using patterns of different scales. Using too many small patterns will make a space seem very busy. Do not be afraid to use a larger scaled pattern it will make a great statement in any room, and it will add color that speaks for itself. To create a balanced ambiance, choose solid colors in muted tones that play off bolder patterns. A successful mix of patterns in a room will include a variety of scale and a balance between organic and geometric shapes.
Small rooms tend to have small windows too which can make the space feel even tinier than it is. Give the illusion of larger windows by using drapes strategically. Get a rod thats wider than your window by a foot or two on either side. That way, you can open the curtains fully, but give the illusion there is more window behind the rest of the curtains. Also try layering your drapes in different shades to give them a flowy, light look and stick to lighter colours to brighten up the room.
