Decor Trend for 2014 - The Peony

Trend predictions in decor were a hot topic last week. I agree with a lot of the trends that are expected to be big this year, but I'm not going to run through them all here.  Instead, I want to present my pick for hot new trend of 2014: peonies. The peony is already a popular flower - fresh peonies are a designer favourite for use in room styling and when creating vignettes. I think that this love for peonies is going to explode in a big way, and that we'll start seeing more fabrics, art and prints that take their inspiration from this beautiful flower.
