Fly the flag for maximalism—bring playful patterns, bold prints and vivid colors into your home with Emily Henson’s new book Be Bold.
Interiors trends for 2018 include strong, saturated color and rich jewel tones. According to Pinterest, statement ceilings are in vogue and statement art is the next big thing, while trend forecasters predict that dramatic textures such as velvet and concrete are making a comeback. In Be Bold, Emily embraces this individual, free-spirited look and shows how to translate it to any home.
In the first section, ‘Decorate like no-one’s watching’, chapters such as ‘More is More, ‘Pattern Riot’, and ‘Paint it Bold’, are brimming with inspiration plus easy ideas to recreate in your own home. In the second half, 'Trailblazers', discover homes with adventurous, spirited styling that will inspire you to decorate with confidence. These are interiors for those who love colour, pattern and adventure.
