What does the word ‘patchwork’ bring to mind? Hippie dippie patterns pieced together? Well, kind of… but these days patchwork has a whole new modern meaning. For me, it is all about modern layouts of truly gorgeous miniature prints complete with awesome color combinations and unexpected pairings.
As per usual, I feel like this is a trend that can work in a variety of color palettes, particularly warm and cool palettes. Classic home decor colors of terra cotta, burgundy, plum, and persimmon strike a melodious balance with shades of taupe, chocolate, and olive green. Meanwhile, in the cool color family, I’m loving shades of peacock, turquoise, cobalt, charcoal and ebony all harmoniously living together, side by side.

While this trend is being clearly exhibited in fashion pieces as of late, it is yet another great trend to bring into your home. A modern patchwork rug is the perfect thing to create a comfy, cozy atmosphere in your bedroom — think of an all-white loft/attic space with luxurious textiles, but one really great, statement-making patchwork rug. That is the inspiration, right there!
