Trend alert: It's face time and we love it

An unglazed terracotta plate entitled 'Visage aux grands yeux' by Pablo Picasso.

There's a trend emerging in decor and we're going to be the ones to call it.

Perhaps the next step in the indie evolution that made hand-crafted goods cool again, the latest decor motif to emerge is the hand-drawn face.

The line drawing style hints at the geometry of the modernists, the simple fluidity of Pablo Picasso's line animals, and the relaxed, humorous expressions often worn by the subjects of Henri Matisse.

Faces (usually female) have been present in art since art began, but this trend also includes paired back versions of the animal kingdom. Rabbits, cats, pandas, koalas, birds and more.

Altogether, it's a motif that pairs well with clean lines and contemporary styling.

WALL HANGINGS

There's so much to love in the share above. Blush and terracotta is the cool kids pairing for using pink this season, and the face in focus personifies the trend.

The absent expression and bright colours of the Face It pillow seem fresh out of a Fauvist painting.
