Splatter Patterns Let Loose in Decor

June 10, 2019

The ’80s have been slipping up on us. Trends like colour blocking and neon hues have reemerged from the archives, and paint-splattered products are back with a vengeance. Back in the day, stylish individualists would set themselves apart from splattering paint all over jeans or coats; today we are seeing with this Pollock-inspired trend on everything from art to cloths into iPhone cases. If you’d like a splash some colour in your interior, invite this lively style in.
