Interior design trends have reflected the appearance of exotic prints and patterns on the runway in 2013, and we’re here to show you how to make it work in your luxurious abode. Colorful, rich fabrics are popping up in the upholstery of cozy library chairs, headboards, and plush benches, and many are using similarly patterned wallpapers to spruce up a dull room.
Be careful though—it’s easy to overdo it, so pick one or two pieces to keep it classy. If you’re inspired by Pantone’s Emerald trend, consider incorporating a patterned statement piece that features the color to summon a bohemian vibe. If new furniture feels like too big a step, try incorporating an Indian-inspired rug for a pop of color that is easily removed.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to travel lately but you’re craving international flare, use bright, detailed prints for a great statement in any room. Get inspired by faraway destinations with a unique headboard by John Robshaw that nods to classic Indian architecture or silk-hemp wallpapers by Raoul Textiles.
