I’m not one of those designers who thinks components need to be “matchy-matchy” in a space but if one is working in a smaller area it does help to expand the eye when repeating similar shapes and/or patterns. It carries through to the length of a room or brings to mind a reference to an adjacent area. The brain may not be totally aware of what it’s processing; however, there is a familiar comfort level with what’s happening as you travel through from one to the other.
After putting together patterns for a living area, you can imagine my delight when this cookie jar was discovered for the neighboring kitchen! Pure serendipity.
I think we made a ‘wise’ choice. :)
