pattern thoughts

Based on this post on Apartment Therapy, I will make one additional thought to everything I've said about using black and white patterns.
From far enough away, a more complex pattern will lose that detail. Very close up, the elements of line and form will capture interest. But that middle ground is where pattern can take on a hypnotic quality. At this scale, the pattern above gives me tunnel vision.

  1. I love black and white, but the wall in this pic totally makes me dizzy. The pillows with polka dots and stripes, though, are totally cool.
