Use a menagerie of patterns in your bedroom without the circus effect. Vary the scale of patterns and include a pattern that reads as neutral. Although the bedspread is patterned, its black and white color scheme serves as a visual break. It also has the largest pattern, so it dominates, and the smaller patterns on the pillows balance it out. Look for color commonalities between the patterns you use and you'll have a look that's eclectic, yet collected.
