Mixing patterns, prints, textures and fabrics is all about taking risks. Like I've said before, pairing totally different styles or elements together adds interest and character to a room. You don't necessarily have to make a huge color contrast with your prints. You can go light and subtle. Or you can do the complete opposite, which will add different dimensions and reflect more bustling decor elements! ( I would personally take this route because I like more gutsy and obvious design, which is what most of these images consist of.)
This last image is a quite serene and peaceful combination of prints and fabrics. A great example of subdued mixing. But even with the patterned wood flooring, it adds more depth.
I just can't think of a better way to design a room with a more delivering personality!
