Keep in mind the scale of your patterns especially  when following the Rule of Three because you do not want your patterns to compete with each other. Instead, go for patterns in three different scales, allowing one,your favourite,  pattern to dominate.

Just a few more tips 

  1. Odd numbers look modern
  2. Even numbers look traditional and adds balance and symmetry, and looks clean and orderly.
  3. Fill matters:  think about fill and how it will affect the appearance.A feather-and-down fill, has a soft and squishy feel, while foam and other synthetic fills are stiffer and much more affordable. Although they are not as luxe as the feather-and-down fill they will hold their shape better.
