One of my favorite new trends is watercolor prints. They look like they’ve been painted on the fabric and add a sense of artistry to a space that I absolutely adore.
Watercolor prints are seen in everything from high fashion, accessories, to home fashion.
When used in fashion, watercolor patterns have a fresh, young and feminine feel. No wonder Hollywood A-listers are embracing this trend.
When used in bedding, throws and other home goods, watercolor prints provide an understated and soothing elegance, and add a chic effortless feel. Bold, graphic textiles can easily go from sophisticated to kitschy. Balance their bright colors and soft lines with modern pieces to transform a space. Just be careful not to go overboard. As with all trends, use in moderation; a little goes a long way
If your style is modern or contemporary, try a watercolor patterned chair or pillows to add a bit of fluidity to soften up the hard lines of contemporary furnishings, and bring out a daring yet feminine sensibility in your space
Even if your style is traditional, a watercolor pattern used in an unexpected way brings in an element of fun, ease of use and comfort to a space. Of course, you can use this trend in the more classic, familiar way…..a watercolor painting. Or bring out the design dare-devil in you by doing a bold and graphic wall treatment
Why not give this trend a try and give your space a warm, homey feel that will be absolutely elegant. What are your thoughts on the watercolor pattern trend? Leave me a comment.
Now go forth and decorate .
