Bright, fun, decorative and comical;Â these are the words I’d use to describe Kitsch.Â Not for the faint hearted, this is a look that will brighten up any room inÂ the home.Â If you want to create this style but you’re a little scared to commit to a large room then why not have some fun and go for a Kitsch toilet?Â It will be a good talking point when friends come over!
This is going to be a big trend for Spring/Summer 2009.Â Coming straight from the catwalks of Vogue, you can expect to see this filtering through to the Homes and Interiors with bold blocks of colour on cushions, rugs, wallpaper and fabrics.
Nature is going strong with lots of pretty botanical prints featuring birds and butterflies.Â This makes beautiful wallpaper.Â If I was going to introduce this look in my home I would wallpaper one wall, choosing one with no windows so you could see the whole repeat of the pattern; see it as a large piece of wall art rather than wallpaper.Â The wallpaper below is called Isabella from Graham & Browns collection.
Leopard skin, Ankara and Ikat are just a few of the African prints that you will see this year on cushions, tablecloths, bedding and tableware. Team this with a touch of bohemian and you have a cutting edge look.
ALL THAT SHIMMERS…
Anything with a sparkle goes.Â These shimmering accessories in either; gold, bronze or silver would look great in an ultra modern home with clean lines and white walls.
