While stark black and white was the color palette of choice last year – think black abstract paintings in the living room and clean white subway tile in the kitchen – this year, pops of pattern are moving in.
What to Know: When selecting a patterned piece, Alex says it's important to consider where it will be hung. "Look for combinations of patterned artwork on a solid-colored wall, or patterned wallpaper with a solid-colored and simple artwork. Contrasting patterns with solid colors ensures the pattern draws the eye and gets the attention."
As far as using patterns elsewhere in the house, Tamara Mack, founder of Tamara Mack Design says, "Add some pizzaz to your kitchen or bath in 2016 with show-stopping patterned tile."
