Start Design Patterns by reading the head first design patterns (Very basic and explains everything perfectly) after this book read the following book

Design patterns:Elements of reusable object-oriented software(Very tough and excellent book)

I strongly second this!

Head First is a excellent introductory book that won't get you asleep. After that, reading GoF Design Pattern will be much enjoyable. And it is the best complement to head first.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
