Suzani prints are the perfect way to bring color home. These 18th-century textiles were traditionally made by brides in Central Asia to present to the groom on their wedding day. Now, three centuries later, they’re adding an exotic touch to modern interiors.
I love these gorgeous embroidered textiles. The traditional moon disk and floral patterns make them versatile enough to be the perfect accent piece in any room.
Who can forget that gorgeous Paul Smith pillow resting on Big and Carrie’s sofa in Sex And The City 2?
That simple yet elegant cushion is a prime example of a watercolor print, one of my favorite new trends. Watercolor prints look like they’ve been painted on the fabric (some may actually have been) and add a sense of artistry to a space that I love.

Our editorial team has loved Jeanine Hays’ blog, Aphrochic, for years, and we bounced with glee when she launched her home decor collection in 2009. We thought it couldn’t get any better…and then she said yes to our invitation to become our Color + Textiles guru.
Jeanine kicks off her weekly column today with insights for layering color, a simple technique for experimenting with palettes until you find one that fits. Come back every Monday for more of Jeanine’s design vision. I hope you’ll love her modern, soulful style as much as we do.
