Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of bohemian ikats, quatrefoil, chevrons and Greek key motifs in home decor. A design trend seems to be growing. I think these prints and patterns are really interesting and are a wonderful way to decorate your home or office. All these fabric patterns are a twist on traditional and modern classics that have been around for a while. I really like all of these geometric prints, but I’m not sure how long they will last in the design world. I hope they will be around for awhile. I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of these trendy prints everywhere, on the runway and in interior design. Here are some inspiring images of these graphic prints below. Why not go bold with these prints?

quatrefoil design rugs
I just love the quatrefroil design on the these rugs sold at Ballard Designs. One thing I’ve noticed with quatrefoil prints is that they’re big in decor but not so much in fashion.

fashion print chevron
Of all these patterns Chevron prints are by far my favorite. They look amazing to wear and fantastic in the home. So whether you decide to wear them or use chevron prints as home accessories, you really can’t go wrong. A great bold print!

design with chevron print
This Chevron print adds lots of visual movement to this space. A good thing about this pattern is that it’s great to use in a small space. It keeps the eye moving and makes spaces appear larger than they are.
