Try: A New Twist on a Classic Pattern
Florals are making a comeback, only they're not the cabbage-rose chintz that covered every curtain and sofa set in the '90s. Expect to see an edgier take, with light florals against a moody black background, says Sheila Schmitz, editor at Houzz.com. Pinterest data supports this too: One of the most popular home décor pins being repinned across the social network is this shot of the print on the sides of a drawer, according to social analytics firm Curalate. The pattern peeks out only when you're rifling for your toothpaste or a rogue hair tie, so you won't get sick of staring at it all day, every day.
