This trend has been building up momentum over the last year and is set to continue into 2019. Constellations, stars and the Zodiac are not just for astronomists, especially when it comes to the home.

We are seeing prints and motifs on tableware, art and soft furnishings and it’s the type of trend you can have a little nod too with out going overboard.

Invest in a statement wallpaper like Mini Moderns ‘Star-ling’ design or accessorise a sofa with constellation design cushions.

Continuing our love of use of a Sharpie marker pen – we found an array of ideas from Ideas.com to get creative with patterns and wording on plates.

This would be great for Christmas place settings to use festive imagery as inspiration, words like ‘Noel’, ‘twinkle twinkle’ or other Christmassy wording or even personalise each plate for each place setting with a name or phrase…
