Pantone is known for always bringing the latest colour trends and it is something to always look forward to it. According to Pantone, colour and design trends for 2020 reveal a fascinating contrast between new and nostalgic approaches to design.
Featured in Prints Charming is a tapestry from Isabelle Torrelle’s collection, “Les Femmes de Delft.” With ironic anachronisms and an eye-catching confrontation between highbrow culture and elements of contemporary pop culture, Isabelle Torrelle’s second Meisterwerke collection takes Flemish Tapestry to new heights. In ‘Les Femmes de Delft’, she once again combines weaving and embroidery in striking panels. Besides muffling sounds, they also offer insightful commentary on our aesthetic history. The fascination for tattoos as an art form is reflected in Prints Charming – the name of the new trend – a cheeky and irreverent colour story where modern-day meets old master featured in PANTONEVIEW home + interiors 2020.
The new trend Prints Charming highlights the growing interest in tattooing as an art form, to the point where patterning in interior textiles can provide inspiration for body art. Showing that inspiration can come from quite unexpected places, the colour palette in Prints Charming refers to a sense of history and tradition, while at the same time introduces a playful co-mingling of traditional themes and modern-day usages.
Fashionable riffs on tattoo motifs show up equally well in fashion and home product, sometimes in noticeable colour and sometimes in minimalist renderings. There’s Popcorn Yellow playfully paired with a pair of floral reds while Bright Cobalt and a ruddy Umber are calmed by a cool mossy Green Bay. The second portion of the palette invites the use of a black and white allover statement introducing a contemporary Jet Black and historically significant Antique White.
Here are some rugs by Brabbu that abide by this trend and will beautify your home, be it the living room, dining room or bedroom, the choice is yours.
Kaiwá is the language spoken by the Guarani-Kaiowás, an indigenous population of Brazil. They live in tropical rainforest areas and are one of the most resilient people in the world.
