Trend Alert! Paint Drips & Splatters

Posted on Nov 25, 2015 by

Drip designs and splatter patterns are the latest style statements for a colourful modern home. Everything from upholstery to crockery has received a flecked makeover. Be bold and emblazon a wall with a painterly patterned wallpaper or surprise guests with just a splash of colour. Here are a few of our favourite accessories for Pollock-inspire interiors.

This amazing Abstract wallpaper by Mr Perswall is not for the faint-hearted. But if you’re brave enough to go big, it is certainly the way to embrace the paint drip trend on a larger scale.

Whether in a contemporary home or a warehouse conversion, this Pinch sofa in “graffito” velvet will immediately catch your guests’ eyes. We love the contrast between the sumptuous velvet and irreverent print.
