Mixing Patterns

My long time favorite hotel is Austin Texas’ Hotel San Jose. One of the things that has always stood out to me is their mix of patterns used on all of the pillows in the rooms. It’s an amazing contrast to the minimalism around them. Like this, see?

So it got me thinking, it can’t be that hard to whip up some pillow covers, right? And then I remembered that I sold a pattern on Spoonflower, so I have some credits. 🙂 (Note: I would so love to design way more patterns on Spoonflower than I currently have. It’s so fun!)

This fabric combo makes me drool all over, but I really only want to pick about 4 of them. Which 4 would you pick?
