Splashes of color, fanciful patterns, and attention-grabbing texture are combined to introduce Curated Caravan. Although this trend is highly colorful and design intensive, it can be adjusted to fit any interior style. A chic, bohemian inspired throw over an array of cushions and pillows adds a touch of boldness to the living room while ethnic-inspired tiles and curtains grab the eye and create a focus on intricacy and detail. Not to be confused with ghosts of trends past, Curated Caravan brings us a spirit of wanderlust and carefree design to be sprinkled over current and evolving trends.
At first glance, it seems that this trend is a juxtaposition of every fabric and color ever. But taking a closer, more intentional look, its obvious that that is only partially true. The Curated Caravan look is meant to be a sort of disheveled chic. This comes as a sigh of relief for those of us that can’t quite keep to the Scandinavian aesthetic of one vase on one shelf in one room. Curated Caravan takes inspiration from whimsical illustrations and sinuous fabrics, adds in stark and complementary color schemes, and artfully jumbles them up into a prettily patterned creation. Don’t worry about creating a look that is too spot on; this trend is supposed to be a little ‘off’. Make it yours by adding in your favorite heirlooms and personal touches which go perfectly with this intentionally thrown together look.
If you’re starting from scratch and have chosen Curated Caravan as your muse, you’re in luck! We’ve selected some of our favorite patterns and fabrics from our friends at Guildery to act as your guide. Be careful not to combine too much pattern though lest you run out of things to add to the rest of your home. With this trend its easy to do too little or too much; go with the flow of the colors and patterns you choose and let the rest fall into place.
