Inject rooms with bold colour and pattern.
2011's popular natural linen wakes up in beguiling new shades, like this dark amethyst that ignites the sheets, especially in a neutral space. The colour is even more striking when the organic fabric is left to crinkle, creating depth and shadows. For even more punch, pick up a Navajo rug. Southwestern style is bucking its head again, showing up on rugs and throw pillows. But those who lived through it the first time need not cringe — mixed in with other patterns, these multicoloured designs have enduring appeal, adding a rich North American flavour without being too thematic.
