A key trend to keep an eye out for this year is arches. The rounded shape of an arch softens a space whether it’s from a mirror, a piece of furniture or a doorway.

Unless you happen to live in a Spanish villa or a Moroccan road you may be lacking arches in your architecture, so take inspiration from the many products available to create a calm inviting room.

Mirrors are a great place to start, and the bigger the better. You can also get the arch shape from a curved floor lamp, it’s more subtle but will still draw your eye.

Be bold and create arches on your walls with a printed wallpaper or perhaps using paint to draw out shapes. Whatever your style, you can bring some curve appeal to your home.
