The New Florals

"I'm seeing more and more florals inspired by historic botanical books, especially in cotton prints and wallpapers," says interior designer Lori Dennis. "It's like chintz in a new way." This isn't Grandma's floral wallpaper: Think large-scale patterns, vibrant blooms and big, bold hues.

Try a Tribal Print

Tribal prints continue to gain popularity as more and more people crave one-of-kind-items and a connection to the people who make them. Buying handmade textiles not only continues local traditions, but it also brings colors inspired by the artisans' surroundings into your home, like rich reds, blues and yellows, says interior designer Sandra Espinet. "If you add a hand-hewn pillow to a neutral room, boom, you have an amazing space," she says. Or, make a bigger statement with a handwoven tribal rug.
