Trendy Tribes

Summer is now officially here! One of the hottest trends for this Summer is tribal prints; tribal prints are either ethnic-inspired or nature-inspired patterns. As I've mentioned in my blog post about polka dots, bold patterns are very much in style this year. So it comes as no surprise to see tribal prints taking over the runways, clothing stores, fashion magazines, etc. It may also possibly be branching off from last year's green trend (going green is still very much in style, by the way). Well in case you haven't stocked up on enough tribal patterns for the Summer, take a look at my finds below.

I loved the graphic tees... *__*

OH, even though you're more of a fashionista than a room designer, can you help me? :)? I just moved into a new house and I have no idea how to transform my room... (I shared my last room with my brother =.=")

Hi!!
Yep, now I'm totally fine!! No cold either!!
I'm glad you liked my post. I'm happy it relates to you.
Check out my new post! And yea, take Care!!

Tara said...

Dibsy: Sure, I can help you come up with some ideas to design your room. Would you want to do some kind of a theme or do you just want nice colors?

Cursed: I'm glad your cold is gone. :) I'll check out your new post soon. I'm sure it's great.

Mostly just colors...

I got a black and white and hot pink bed, a bright orange desk, khaki colored wooden floor and drawers for my clothes...and my room is currently white.... :X (nothing matches...>.<)

Tara said...

So I'm guessing you're going to want the walls painted a different a color. I would suggest using one of the colors that are already in your room to try to get it matching a little better (I like hot pink, but that's just a personal preference).

You might also want to get a carpet with one of those colors as well to even out the balance a little more (although if you have allergies to dust or anything like that, I wouldn't recommend the carpeting as it can make allergies worse).

Another thing you can do is put up some wallpaper with a pattern. The pattern may contain a few of the colors that are in your room (for example, you can have black and hot pink stripes, black and white polka dots, maybe even a tropical pattern with orange fish or garden pattern with pink, orange, and white flowers, etc.)

It's a little hard for me to know for sure without actually having seen your room though... I'll look into this a little more. I'll do some research online and will look for different wallpaper and carpet samples. Then I'll show them to you and you can tell me if they would go with your room or not. I hope I helped at least a little bit though. Good luck with you new room! :)

What a huge selection of beautiful dresses.!! Well, tribal prints are my all time favorites. That #1 Charlotte Russe Rope Tribal Top is my most favorite.

Tara said...

Hi Citlali! Thank you for reading and commenting on my blog. I'm glad you liked the tribal prints and that top.

Dibsy said...

Thsnks so much! :D I can't paint, so I'll get a wallpaper... -goes off-

Tara said...

Good luck! I hope you can find a nice wallpaper pattern that matches the rest of your room! :)
