Hidden Patterns in the Home

If you're squeamish about busying your home with a lot of pattern, but you like the look of modern wallpapers and fabrics, try hiding prints in unexpected places. Hidden patterns have a special, clandestine appeal. You'll get a little kick every time you open a drawer or cupboard. A few places to hide patterns: • Use patterned wrapping paper or contact paper to line the inside of drawers. • Wallpaper a closet to bring a little oomph to an overlooked spot. • Line the inside of a book or box with patterned paper to make a gift for someone. • Use wallpaper on the inside of a trunk. • On the inside of a kitchen cupboard, use a pattern that coordinates with your dishes for an ultra-lux look.
