It's Hot Outside! Think Fall With Three Cool Trends We Are Tracking.

Let’s take a break from this summer heat and focus on something a bit cooler, like these fall trends! Fall is by far my favorite season so I am so excited to share a few sneak peaks with you!

1.     Mixing Patterns
The mixing of multiple patterns into one space may be a little overwhelming, but don’t be scared, it’s easier than you think. The trick is to use patterns of different scales that have one or two similar colors in them, which keeps the effect cohesive. Don’t be afraid to be bold!

2.     Mixing Textures
Layers, layers, layers. Mixing different textures together gives your space a more “lived in” feeling. Adding a lightweight throw to your couch or dropping a few burlap pillows onto your plush duvet may just do the trick. Mixing wood, metal, and glass elements really pull a room together.

3.     Color Distortion
Colors are distorted by cutting, breaking, and interfering with the surface of the textiles, creating geometric shapes. Mesh techniques are put into play to emulate architectural structures. Even and smooth surfaces mask the tactility of the textile. The fabrics are generally lightweight, crisp, and cool to the hand. A fabric like this would give any space a nice punch of color and liveliness.
