Today we’re studying the Mandala pattern from our pattern board. This ornate design found on embroidered tribal textiles of Central Asia is the darling of the interior design world.  It instantly conjures balmy nights on an exotic island. Notice how it looks chic when the design is carved on to your medium like the charger above. Feel free to use the Mandala pattern with a limited monochromatic palette or you can pile on bold colors like we did here.  Whether you are styling a party, desserts, or your home, this exotic pattern will bring instant style cred to your look. How have you used the mandala pattern?  We would love to know!
