I'm a very big fan of florals that work to battle the stigma of flowers being effeminate, overly ladlylike patterns; motifs that could only be at home in your granny's parlor. Give me big, bold petals that could carry a loft as easily as a playroom and won't make the men of the house feel their own presence was disregarded when it came to design.
The Ashbury design shown here is just such a candidate. Part of the new Crossroads collection from Karastan, the oversized, stylized blooms are playful and artistic and the rich black backdrop deepens the mood of the piece as well.
Crossroads consists of 20 designs that meld East and West design motifs -- including Suzanis, Sarouks, Ikats, and Geometrics -- in a palette that uses neutrals like black and ivory in contrast with punches of color like a rich red, smoky blue and bottle green.
