Since fashion and home decor have long been kindred spirits, it is no surprise to find the trend du jour, camouflage, popping up in home design. Spring 2013 fashion collections by designers such as Perry Ellis, Michael Kors and Valentino showcased amalgamated wear in many types. Now this classic print has made home decor its new frontier.
Be warned, this tendency isn’t for the faint of heart. Camouflage home decor is daring and in-your-face, therefore pick early on if you’re prepared to live with that much edginess into your home or workplace. If you like this pattern but in tiny doses, then there are a few subtle techniques to integrate it, too.
Jute Interior Design
You can go daring with this tendency by layering it on all your walls. It works well here since the background has grey tones, therefore it doesn’t overwhelm the room. Cheerful dashes of green and yellow appear in art, a seat and a blanket. This room is made for one trendy kid.
Hint: When having background installed is too pricey, then consider stenciling a camouflage pattern on the walls and filling into your design with paint. It’s a look you may reach at a portion of wallpaper’s price.

Lowe’s Home Improvement
Believe it or not, this print functions nicely even if paired with additional patterned prints. This camo beanbag would make a comfy addition to a boys’ room and appears quite at home next to the patterned walls. Why does it work?

Desert Camo Chesterfield
Ready to embrace the warrior soul? Give a camouflage chesterfield sofa center stage within an ecelctic living room.
Hint: This type of statement piece will surely need some balance. Look at a rug in neutral beige for a green camouflage, and a light yellow or green carpet with this desert camo. Liven up either sofa with vivid orange or yellow throw pillows, which can be purchased on the cheap. If a full-blown sofa is simply too much to tolerate, then look at buying camouflage fabric and reupholstering a dining chair or an accent chair to present the trend in a subtler way.
