TREND WATCH - Updated Florals

This post is sort of a follow-up to my recent post on Designer's Guild and chintz.  As noted, these fabrics may not be glazed like chintz (give me some poetic license!) but the floral patterns are similar.  I have started to see these designs in my internet research and in magazines.  What's different from the 80's chintz, you ask?  Well, the patterns in these fabrics are a little oversized and they have much more intense colors.  One more great thing these designers have done?  They paired these fabrics with other trendy styles such as geometrics and stripes.

Look how John Loecke mixed the chintz fabric on the seat cushions with the geometric fabric on the rest of the sofa.  This helps update the floral design.  Also, check out the ceiling.  See more about John Loecke HERE.

Designer Meg Braff mixed her floral fabric with geometric carpet, a green leopard print sofa and chinoiserie lamps.  See more about her HERE.

Off course we have to include one of the new Lilly Pulitzer florals, which is updated here by pairing it with painted wood (instead of stained) and a zebra rug.

Here's another Lilly Pulitzer fabric on a sofa paired with a chevron rug and trellis chairs.
