Move into Maximalism
The minimalism of past seasons has given some ground to a new “maximalist” style, characterized by layers of pattern, color and texture. In its more casual iteration, it exudes a boho vibe that’s welcoming and lived-in — piles of books, patterned throws, curated accessory collections and gallery walls.
Global and Glamorous
Asian, African and Middle Eastern motifs remain popular, evoking the well-traveled lifestyle.

Traditionalists will be pleased to see the return of small florals as an alternative to contemporary oversize blooms.
Pottery Barn has a dinnerware and glassware collection in vintage prints. And Morris & Co. has introduced updated versions of William Morris’ iconic patterns on its wallpaper.
