How to Create a Modern Traditional Look with Pattern

Traditional look is back in trend!

If you’re a traditionalist like me, and you’d like to mix up classic designs with a touch of modernism, then this video is for you!

In today’s video, we’ll be talking about using classic patterns and spicing them up by adding a touch of modern designs. Take something classic like a banana leaf that fits into every décor and add in a modern touch by pairing it with a Zambia print. It’s black and white and gives a tribal influence and brings out the black in the leaf print!

The Zambia print comes as a designer lumbar pillow, which sets nicely in front of the banana leaf. It is always a good idea to layer your accent pillows. Usually start with a larger square, and then bring in the rectangle of the lumbar pillow to offset it visually.

If it’s not to your taste, we’ve got a lot of other combination options for you! You can switch it up with a banana leaf print and the leopard print with an accent lumbar pillow of the lemons. This layering style is so fun with those trending lemons! Whichever works best for you.

Make a designer statement by using patterns with textures and modern prints to create a modern traditional look!
