Patterns do not only occur on textiles and in nature, they are created in many ways; for example, by stones cemented into a wall, or bricks laid, or buttons on the back of a tufted sofa.

Different patterns are made by the way in which stone or bricks are laid on a floor or a back-splash or a wall. It can also be influenced by the style of mortar or grout.


Different types of stone and brick offer many patterns to choose from, for instance: Smooth Brick, Dragged Face Brick, Textured Brick, Tumbled Brick, Ledgestone, Fieldstone or Random, Square & Rectangle, River Rock or Stream Stone, and more.

Utilizing repetition of pattern is important when it comes to the rhythm, flow, and harmony of a space.  If you have decided on a brick fireplace, consider a subway tile or brick backsplash, or brick flooring. Consider rectangles and stripe patterns in your throw pillows and decorative elements. If you decided to lay brick in a herringbone design consider incorporating zig-zags, chevrons, skewed squares, and other herringbone type patterns for your decorative elements throughout the space. This will help the space flow and feel harmonious and cohesive because you have rhythm and repetition in your patterns throughout each space.
