With yearly color trends come another: pattern trends! Last year chevron was all the rage, as well as some Ikat and other globally-inspired prints. Will this be the year of diamonds? We found some fascinating and faceted decor that might be proof of this year's hot new shape and pattern.

Great in a repeating pattern, stupendous in a 2D graphic and gorgeous in a 3D sculpture, diamonds certainly do wow with their versatility. Mix in fun textures, colors and applications and you've got a trend that might have lasting power:
