Print is back in a big way, and can be seen throughout homes in wallpaper designs, curtains and other fabrics. Bold colours with pinks, greens and blacks are being seen in tropical prints and geometric patterns, adding a young, fun vibe to homes.
One great example of these patterns can be seen in this house in Putney, which has a tropical, trendy feel in the dining area.

Textured fabric is also proving popular this year, and has been seen in soft furnishings, fireplaces and lighting, all of which provide an edge to living areas. An easy way to incorporate this trend into your home is by mixing fabrics together i.e. throwing scatter cushions over a velvet sofa or draping wool throws over leather sofas.
The different fabrics used in the bedroom of this stunning apartment in Marylebone seamlessly blend modern décor with traditional surroundings.

Lastly, this season we’ve seen a shift from the white, bright interiors that have been en vogue during the past few years to deeper colours. Popular shades include dark slate, plum and dusky blues and Greenery, the Pantone colour of 2017. Not only can these colours be used to spectacular effect on a feature wall, splashes of these deep shades on cushions, throws and ceramics will add a chic touch to any room.
The use of slate grey in this Victorian living room in Kensington, coupled with the dark blue sofa and strong statement lighting, creates a sophisticated, impactful room.
