Hot patterns for winter: Black, white and geometric

Hot patterns for winter: Black, white and geometric

Geometric patterns have been very much "in" over the past year or so, and the trend doesn't look like it's going anywhere soon. However, bright, bold chevrons and stripes are giving way this winter to neutral color palettes and thinner, slightly more subtle patterns. There are three great ways to incorporate this latest trend into your home decor, whether you're on a budget or ready to splurge on an entire new room.

Here are our tips for bringing the latest interior design trend into your home:

  • Accent wall: If you're ready to go big with your design, one of the best ways to make a statement is with an accent wall. When done right, especially in a black and white lattice or a more modern, whimsical swirl print, an accent wall adds sophistication in any room. Aim to create a cohesive tableau with your accent wall – the best places for these are behind your bed's headboard or your living room couch.
  • Accessories: Those on a budget will be best served by updating their accessories with a strong pattern. Throw pillows and blankets are the easiest, and can completely freshen a room's look for pennies on the dollar, no matter what your existing design or color scheme.
  • Curtains and draperies: For a chic update to your living or bedroom, nothing is better than hanging patterned custom draperies and valances. Patterned curtains in black and white add visual interest to the sources of light that your eye is naturally drawn to.
