From New York shop windows, to the streets of Milan, our favorite stores on-line, and throughout the mall, bright, bold prints with a global-chic vibe have been strutting their stuff in the sun this year! Cultured and fun, these prints make a statement of worldly fashion savvy. This powerful trend has had a liberating effect on our decorating and fashion sense, allowing us to mix styles and prints like never before with confident abandon. Picture a canary yellow African wax fabric pillow, resting on an orchid Moroccan pouf ottoman with a blue chevron pattern throw blanket… gorgeous!
Where once these vivid colors may have been shocking and (gasp!) clashing, now they are invigorating and a la mode. Influenced by global ventures, uniting color and pattern traditions of different cultures, these exotic fashions boast touches of Africana, animal prints, tribal chic patterns and romantic suzani and paisley designs from the Middle East. Peruse the gallery of striking wall art below from WallPops and plan to add some worldly touches to your home decor! Be tempted by shimmering patterns inspired by the golden island sun of Greece in Santorini and Geo Circles, enticing Casbah room panels with an Arabic intrigue, artisanal tree wall art, ethnic Persian textile suzani patterns, distant island prints like Bali, and chic animal print wall decals. Invigorate your walls with an adventurous splash of spicy style!
The Colors of Classic!
Black and white, the ultimate combination for enduring sophistication. As compelling in a modern decor theme as in a vintage style or a country-chic motif, black and white defines classic. There is something intriguingly je ne sais quoi about both black, and white, the only colors who almost defy color at all. White, the color of light that can be broken into all the colors of the spectrum, and black sometimes referred to as the absence of color, are enigmas, and they contrast with each other like no one else.
Using black and white as a decor theme is a fresh and clean approach, truly capable of making a space appear larger. To take advantage of this distinguished duo together, add pops of color for style and warmth. For a modern look, bling-y metallic accents provide a sleek and chic detail. For an inviting, rustic appeal, country blues and yellows are a welcome splash of sass. Even gentle dallops of cream, taupe and brown will bring a personal touch to a black and white room. Below are images from Ink, a Black and White Collection from Brewster Home Fashions, showing a diverse range of rooms from contemporary to traditional.
These rooms are beautiful examples of well done black and white themes. However, to add a black and white element to your existing decor is also an option, one with a lot less commitment and a lot more room for integrating this fresh theme into your already fabulous arrangements. Try painting one wall black, and making it a salon wall to showcase your photos and art with Jonathan Adler for WallPops black and white frame decals. Or dress up a white wall with snazzy black wall art! WallPops is a brilliant solution for adding color and style to white walls. Check out the black and white inspiration below.
