Trend Spotlight: Layering Patterns

The modern home will be making a transition this year, from the once-prized minimalism of two-toned, straight-edged rooms to the newly reborn over-the-top combination of multiple patterns layered on top of one another. Take a look at the above room – separately, these pieces would fizzle, but together they absolutely pop. This is a style trend that can easily go awry with too many contrasting patterns, but if you use your designer eye to determine which patterns and shapes would mesh best, you can create a busy, energetic space that is just bursting at the seams with style.
