How to Mix Modern Patterns with Bird Prints

Do you love marrying modern designs with classics? Do you love bird prints?

Well, here is an example of classic a heron bird print with hues of blues, grays and greens on an aqua sky blue background. It fits perfectly with this modern abstract lumbar pillow. Let me tell you why.

This lumbar pillow was designed from an abstract painting. It brings out the seamless integration of blue, navy, green, and turquoise, which are reflected in the colors in the Heron master pillow pattern.

I love placing this novelty Heron Bird pillow on a bed, couch or kitchen bench mixed with the abstract “Moderno” lumbar pillow in front of it. It highlights the colors in the Heron design reflecting a perfect blending of two styles: modern with traditional. It’s a perfect match!

Don’t be afraid to mix your patterns. One safe tip is to have a master design, one that stands out with a story to tell. Like our Heron Pillow. Then blend in a smaller pillow with a texture so it enhances the novelty bird pillow and it brings in more colors to the forefront of your lounging area whether it be a bed, couch or bench.
