The New Traditional: Bold & Exotic
Daring design gives this room a heightened sense of drama.
This year, traditionalists are expressing their inner rebels with a riot of clashing colours and bold patterns. Rich decorating schemes emerge as chinoiserie wallpaper mixes with a camp-style red point blanket to offer appealing tension. Upholstered headboards, still in vogue, get an edgy update with nailhead detailing. Classic lampshades on swing-arm lamps, while still pleated and pretty, swap out more staid shades for exotic brights. Bits of gold detailing throughout add a balancing dose of traditional polish.
