Multicolored dots traverse Design Legacy’s pillow with exuberant, abstract appeal.
Look to colorful flora and fauna to lend a playful touch to more transitional offerings. Palm leaves and pineapples pack a tropical punch, giving a shout-out to the continuing Havana trend and infused with vivacious pinks and corals, oranges, blues and yellows. Classic stripe and dot patterns enhance the springtime celebration, modernized with bold, bright colors and minimalist interpretation, alongside preppy plaid and check patterns.
On the contemporary side, eloquently simple designs reference nature with unadorned purity. Sustainable, eloquently figured woods boast incredible depth, elevated by the addition of patterned stones such as marble and alabaster. Heavily textured ceramics resemble faux bois or stone, and faux bois patterns also are prominent on other accents this season. Letting the outdoors inside is a recurring theme, reflected in a plentiful showing of terrariums and cloches. The palette is understated and neutral, played out in white, cream, taupe, gray and black, popped by unexpected and welcome bursts of citrusy green.
