Our playful Suzy pattern is available in pillow, wallpaper, rug, and curtain form. It’s a delight to decorate with no matter what type of room you’re designing: Suzy shines in powder rooms, primary bedrooms, playrooms, just to name a few spaces. If you’re wondering just how exactly to integrate Suzy into your home, we’re here to help. We turned to two professional designers who share tips on how to make Suzy shine; read on for their suggestions below.
Don’t Be Afraid to Mix Suzy With Other Prints
If multiple prints have caught your eye, there’s no need to be shy. “I love mixing small and large scale prints for the ultimate pattern play,” says designer Nicole Arruda of Nicole Alexandra Design. “I would pair the beautiful Suzy print with a smaller scale geometric pattern like a grid, stripe, or something dotted.”
But mixing small and large scale prints isn’t the only option. “I love the combination of organic patterns like florals or botanicals with a geometric pattern like the Suzy,” Arruda adds. “I find the two contrast beautifully together and create a layered scheme that looks good every time!”
Or Use Suzy With a Solid
Prefer to go the solid route alongside your Suzy? Arruda has tips for that, too. “If the room already has enough pattern and you’re looking to break things up with a solid, I always opt for something textural like a velvet, grasscloth, leather, or a linen,” she explains. “This is a little more understated but equally as interesting and impactful.”
Try Suzy in a Nursery
Designer Taylor Johnson of Taylor Johnson Interiors is a proponent of using incorporating any variation of the Suzy print into a kid’s space. “So many of my clients are asking for help decorating nurseries that can grow with the child,” she explains. “The Suzy fabric in sage is a perfect for curtains in this instance—sweet and soft enough to use in a nursery, but also fun enough to continue to use as the child grows up.” Johnson envisions pairing the fabric with soft neutrals; perhaps boucle. As children get older, go ahead and incorporate some bolder hues alongside Suzy, Johnson says. “For a girls' room, try a Turkish rug and pink or lavender pillows. For a boy’s room, use a slate blue striped or geometric rug and orange accents.”
Remember, you can always order a Suzy sample to evaluate at home. Whether you’re shopping for a rug, wall covering, or curtain fabric, we make it easy to take a close look at colors and patterns before you buy.
