Globally Gratifying

There are a lot of interesting trends arising from the wake of 2013 – and with summer well underway, it makes sense that bright, fun colors and patterns are being used in new and different ways to express interior spaces. This time, patterns and colors are coming from zebra print burlap, tooled metal, persian rugs, and boldly-sewn textiles – pretty much anything that says, “I just returned home from traveling the world.” Animal prints are back in the field of interior design, along with pretty much anything natural, hand-carved, exotic, and interesting. After all, why would nature ever go out of style? Take a look at some of the inspiration for this new and exciting obsession.
