The zest for painterly fabrics and home goods has been gradually gaining steam over the past few seasons and so I wanted to explore the look to see how it could be interpreted for different schemes and tastes. I’ve called the two looks Romantic Touch and Modern Graphic. The former is a traditional (and more widely exercised) use of the painterly effect, with soft brush strokes, delicate colours and feminine florals often at the helm of the designs. The second look, Modern Graphic, is a more contemporary take on the look which sees stronger lines and strokes used across a palette of vibrant neon and acid-like hues. As for Mr. Bazaar’s favourite, well I’m going to opt for Modern Graphic because the broken brush stroke chevron fabric is a stylish take on a tried and tested pattern and the brush stroke pillow has already been ordered for my office! Which take on this trend do you like best, friends?
