9 Reasons You’ll Love This New Watercolor Home Decor Trend
Some home decor trends come and go, while others, like all things watercolor, stick around regardless of season. The colorful, artistic print adds an airy, graceful element to anything it touches — it’s a perfect accent in a boho or preppy home. But the latest take on watercolor home decor is getting an ultra modern twist. Introducing oil slick decor, a color combo that melds vibrant purple, blue and green hues to create a gorgeous, iridescent look — like if watercolor and opal-inspired decor decor had a very goth baby. Scroll through to see nine slick picks that will help you add the futuristic, minimalist decor trend into your home. Pair the pieces with some metallics and lighter hues like pastels for spring, or stick to a more neutral palette to round out your minimalist decor. Either way, you’ll have a super on-trend and shimmery abode.
