I seem to be inspired by graphic patterns lately- I love mixing and matching them with solids, stripes, and colors. They give guests something to look at- something interesting. When you mix other coordinating table top items, the look becomes seamless and eclectic even if nothing is technically "matching".
Graphic patterns are also lovely when you have either very few colors (like one or two as in the photo above) or when you're going with a monochromatic theme. It adds a little bit more interest than if you had stayed with just solids.
How about you? What things are you loving right now?
