Diamond & Harlequin Patterns to Inspire

Harlequins and diamond patterns are a classic pattern originated in Italy over 400 years ago and it has proven a perennial favorite by easily incorporating into any type of design style. Lately, we’ve been spying an uptick on this gorgeous graphic design paired with Modern Masters products. Its allover design allows for the inclusion of several colors and it has been used successfully in interior design for surfaces such as floors, walls and furniture.

A diamond pattern will instantly add visual impact to any surface. One traditional rule of thumb is that the height of the diamond be twice that of the width while others just think of it as squares set at an angle. It’s important to note to keep the scale of the space in mind when incorporating a harlequin pattern – too small and the design can become too busy while too large doesn’t successfully create the necessary allover impact. Be sure to pin these fantastic projects and keep these creative harlequin project ideas close at hand. Have an inspired day!
