Is It Possible To Overdo Printed Pillows?

Pillows are a chance to indulge our wild side in a safe (and soft) way. Just like matching jewelry with an outfit, we can always add and subtract cushions endlessly. But, we often wonder, can one go too overboard mixing prints?
According to Missoni brand ambassador Margherita Maccapani Missoni, the answer is a clear no. Her home in Milan (shot by The Selby) is a fabulous pattern zoo from the wallpaper down to the floor. It's zany and colorful and luxe-looking, somehow all at once. Our main takeaway: Let all the styles — stripes to floral to chevron to Southwestern — play together. Dusty, muted colors in every design pattern just work.
