Call on the tribal trend to revamp



Punctuate your interior scheme with head-turning, tribal touches. “This look offers a surprising amount of creative freedom, as it can be intertwined with other styles and trends for a multilayered approach,” explains Nadia McCowan Hill, Wayfair’s Resident Style Advisor. “For example, a tribal wallpaper design is a good background for modern, minimalist furniture.” Don’t be tempted to invest in larger pieces though as it can become too domineering: “It’s most impactful in small quantities, which means you don’t need to spend a lot of money to make a punchy impact.”
