Having looked at the patterned, spotted, multi-hued glory that is the TRIBAL TREND yesterday, I’m sure you might be wondering how to incorporate this into your home without making it into a mad-house?! I’ve gathered a collection of tip top pieces from my shopping travels that you can incorporate into your decor to add some vibrancy and ethnic-inspired energy in a grown-up, tasteful way.
The bright patterns and colours of the tribal trend look great on a neutral base such as wood floors (especially reclaimed!) and pale walls.
I think this mix would actually work all together in a room! Especially with the neutral colours of the coconut-wood drawer unit and the taupe Patchy rug cooperating with but not fighting the bright pieces, tribal can definitely work as a whole scheme and not just in accents.
On the other hand, you could go a bit braver and choose your larger investment items with an exotic flavour, such as the fabulous Hide chair with digitally programmed stitching embellishments, or the fun interchangeable dining table, both from Mint, below.
And for the final round-up, it’s all about the accessories! For those who don’t want to go all-out, add just a little touch here and there to bring a little zap of energy to your space, even just with a set of dinnerware to bring out when you’re feeling brave!
I’d love to hear your thoughts on these products! What do you love and what would you ‘pass’ on? Would you go for the woven textures and contrasting patterns, but pass on the hodge podge of materials and the endless colour palette? Perhaps you covet the mix of hues but abhor the animal-inspired touches?
Also, do you think the tribal trend is here to stay, or is it nearing it’s expiry date?
