The Season's Hottest Home Design Trend is the Wake-Up Call We All Need

Out with the blah, in with the whoa.

By Patricia Cunningham

It’s estimated that up to 80 percent of home furnishings are beige. That’s right — we're awash in neutrals, floating in a sea of basic, soothing ourselves into a state of stagnation by playing it safe one too many times — which is why it's so exciting to see what’s on the horizon for home design in the fall: exuberant, vibrant prints! Lots of them! And they’re adorning everything from furniture reimagined in bold fabrics, to hand-painted dinnerware, to eye-popping rugs and linens.

The maximalist trend is taking the home design world by storm. This shift is all about layering pattern and texture and using color in bold, interesting ways. It’s about showing your individuality and personalizing your space by surrounding yourself with things you love. The best part is that you really can’t mess it up, since jarring juxtapositions are what it’s all about. So pair that dramatic rug with trippy wallpaper and then add an in-your-face sofa, some scene-stealing plants, and your vast collection of vintage dog figurines. It’s all good. If you need some inspiration, we’ve rounded up an amazing assortment of some of the most bold and colorful items on the market this season that are sure to provide a stimulating wake-up call to any space. Here’s to doing more with more!
