Brighten Your Home with Prints and Patterns

Home decor trends follow what fashion designers send down the runway, so it’s no surprise that bold patterns and prints are a current trend. Throw in a touch of Scandi chic, and you’ve got a look to love.

Grey and Blue

Soft greys and blues create a restful, calm environment – just the thing to welcome you home after a tough day. Mixing in natural textures like wood floors, woven baskets, and linen fabric will add depth and interest, while geometric patterns will easily liven things up. Accent with splashes of colour like the Orla Kiely cushions (main pic, from £40 each).

Bold Brights

Take inspiration from traditional Cuban style with bold colours and intricate geometric designs that look fantastic on everything from tiles to cushions. Cuban style is unashamedly bright, and you can bring a touch of tropical sunshine to Dundee by basing your colour scheme around red, yellow, blue or green. Dream sweetly of a paradise island under these tropical print sheets (Kaleidoscope, from £8), or take inspiration from the Cuban flag with this red, blue and white stripe rug (Wayfair £85.99)



Luxurious Metallics

Gold is the perfect way to add the luxe look to your home. You don’t have to spend a fortune for it to feel expensive, with high street stores and even supermarkets adding a touch of gold to their latest home furnishing range. A good tip is to refresh a tired trinket or piece of furniture with gold spray paint. Try gilding old wooden photo frames with sheets of gold leaf for a surprisingly affordable DIY project or, for serious sparkle, why not make a feature wall with metallic wallpaper (£23 per roll, Graham & Brown).

With High Street stores bursting with a fantastic array of homewares, it isn’t just your wardrobe you can make fashionable, but your whole home.
