Joseph has mastered the knack of mixing patterns and colors to create a finished look. There are a couple of tricks to making checks, plaids, prints and solids work together.

If you are using color to make a statement, go ahead and match or contrast pieces, but take care that the elements you choose share something in common like value (lightness and darkness) or color family (their proximity on the color wheel).
