by Chronicle Books Staff




The Pattern Book, a follow-up to Chronicle Books' best-selling home-style guide The Color Book, is an innovative and practical tool that takes the worry and frustration out of choosing and combining patterns. With their richness, vibrancy, and texture, patterns can radically change the atmosphere of any room. But picking the right patterns to use can be an intimidating process. Now, with The Pattern Book, choosing pattern combinations is as easy as flipping a page. A three-way, split-page section makes it easy to see what a woven taffeta couch will look like with floral throw pillows, or how well a silk damask-covered chaise will go against a striped wall. The perfect design guide for people of all tastes, The Pattern Book offers a broad range of contemporary and traditional wallpaper and fabric patterns. Each fabric swatch includes full purchasing details and suggestions on where and how to use it. This comprehensive book provides a guide to using patterns, plus examples of classic pattern combinations, professional tips for combining patterns, and a glossary of the various pattern types seen in the book. With its resourceful text and innovative mix-and-match design, The Pattern Book is a simple and fun way to experiment with patterns before taking the plunge.
