Keep it simple with two colours.
Take a cue from fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier, who showed nautical stripes on the runway this year, as well as in his collection of furniture for Roche Bobois. His Paravent Screen Bed (bottom) is perfect for an open-concept loft. For an affordable dose of the trend, try a blue and white striped rug like this one from Ikea.
