Got Spots? The New Trend for 2015

Animal prints have been popular for decades. Until lately, though, it’s been hard to think of them without envisioning a safari themed bedroom or a zebra and hot pink teen girl’s room.

…until now. If you read my earlier post, you know that I am in the process of painting my bedroom in zebra stripes to mimic Thibaut’s zebra wallpaper:


Indeed, it is hard to keep up with design trends without seeing an animal print of some kind, and of those the most saught-after emerging looks coming out of the animal print gate seems to be spots! The black and white Dalmatian type pattern has come a long way from the days of Cruella DeVille. Thibaut’s Tanzania wallpaper shows us how this pattern can bring an elegant, modern look to any space.



For the less flashy, or those who like the trend but not enough to commit to an entire room, there are a multitude of accessories available in all prints, patterns, and for all budgets.

One of my favorites is Brunschwig & Fils Les Touches fabric.


If black and white isn’t your thing, the B&F fabric also comes in a variety of colors.


If you are really feelin’ the spots trend, Joss & Main is having a sale called “Most Liked Looks” right now featuring a few affordable items.

Nairobi Storage Ottoman- $204.95

Togo Sham- $42.95

Togo Duvet Cover- $195.95

The trend also extends to flooring, like these rugs.



So what do you think? Is the spots trend here to stay? Let me know, and have a happy New Year!
