9 speckled decorative pieces to energize a space

In BOHIn the new On Trend series, we’re asking creators to share their favorite current finds.

Move over, scribble, there’s a new free-spirited trend in town. After two years of being on our best behavior, we’re turning to playful speckled patterns to invigorate a space with texture and whimsy. Whether it’s post-consumer recycled rubber granules, pieces of marble used to create terrazzo, or ceramic and earthenware covered in glazed stains, the speckled markings bring a pop of color and a modernist touch to furniture and household items in abundance ”, explains the designer Keita Turner.

Inspired, we asked Turner and the designers Kellie burke and Ashley DeLapp to share three of their favorite sprinkle pieces and how to use them in a room.

Snow wallpaper by Hygge & West
“We used Hygge & West’s Snow wallpaper in a blue colourway to wrap around the walls of a home office on the top floor of a historic Brooklyn home. The speckled textured pattern is inspired by the appeal of Nordic winters and provides an ambiance of softly falling snowflakes to the interior spaces. It evokes the nostalgia of sitting in front of the window like a child, gazing in wonder at the first snowfall of the season. We love how it showcases the dramatic angles of this attic home office! “

Rose Gold Ceramic Patch Glass Wall Tile by The Tile Shop
“I’m obsessed with this tile! Not only does it have a random metallic design, but the saturated color options are perfect. I would use them to cover a shower. Since this is a square tile, I would install them in a straight stack pattern for a modern look. Seeing them every morning would be a fun way to wake up!

Pollock II Wallpaper by Soicher Marin Studio
“This wallpaper is super whimsical and could be used in any room in the house. The pattern is large enough for impact, but not too heavy for it to take over. I would use it to cover the ceiling of a playroom or all the walls of a powder room.
