Spring is officially here, so our Site Merchandiser Meghan Sawyer has picked the top five trends that artists should keep an eye on and make all their own this season.
Dark Florals + Pops of Color
‘Tis the season for botanical blooming, so it’s no surprise that florals are having a moment. Still, these aren’t your average dainty and delicate buds; they’re boasting bold colors but aren’t afraid of the dark, either.
If you’re open to embracing color, keep an eye on decor that displays it in playful patterns and gives nod to prisms—which, if you remember from science class, is any object that separates white light into the colors of the rainbow. That’s right, the rainbow. Why not? Because its combination of color is a timeless classic, it’s the perfect design element when deciding to go retro.
Shades of Purple
You can’t get more versatile than purple. Ranging from moody to regal, pastel to punchy, incorporating this color into your home decor is bound to set the proper mood for any room.
Let our launch of fanny packs serve as proof that the 90s are in full effect. So if you were a fan of the era’s design elements of neon hues, simple geometric shapes, sunflowers, smiley faces and squiggly lines, you’re in luck.
Embracing the Imperfect
There’s a freedom to art when it rids itself of realism. It leaves room to accept oddities and eccentricities, and that’s no more evident than in abstract art and illustrations that are willing to quite literally—and figuratively—bend the rules.
