When I was growing up, mixing patterns was an absolute no-no.  Anyone doing that would have been sitting by herself in the cafeteria.  Thankfully, pattern mixing has become a whole new art form . . .

Success with pattern mixing involves the use of color, design compatibility, and pattern scale.  I have found that leaves or flowers mixed with stripes usually works well, and if you're initially a little timid, use a monochromatic color scheme to unify the patterns.  It's fun – give it a try!
