Go bold with the modern abstract trend. Brands are filling the stores with strong, geometric and block colour prints and patterns to bring great design to the home.

Interiors can be clean, white and minimal and you can then introduce this trend in cushions, prints, rugs or bedding to make a statement.

Hunt out great indie designers on sites like Etsy and Trouva, to find unique pieces strong for this trend.

Every so often we come across a truly beautiful diy project and this from We Are Scout is no exception.

To take such a simple idea of printing with leaves and fabric paint and produce such beautiful homeware is very clever

Follow their simple tutorial and get creative. This process will produce modern organic printed fabric – it could be used for a table cloth, curtains, cushions, tea towels – the options are endless.

It would also make a lovely design for a wrapping paper.

We are always looking to discover artists that’s work we admire and we’d love to adorn our walls. The work of Philip O’Dwyer is no exception.

Gorgeous architectural and often brutalist inspiration fills his ink and acrylic pieces.

See more of his work on his website or on his Instagram feed

Bio:

Philip O’Dwyer is a designer and visual artist. Born in 1974 in Dublin, he lives and works in London.

‘My practice uses drawing and painting to explore personal preoccupations with the built human environment. I’m interested in the interaction between an imaginary world of building codes, patterns, and perfect industrial objects and the real world of decay, repair and individual self-expression’.

Back for a second year, Print Club London presents an exhibition of its favourites artists and their works in order to support Help Refugees.

Artists have taken the iconic ‘Choose Love’ slogan, originally created by Katherine Hamnet in the 1980s and each created a one off piece.

It has so far raised over £50,000 for the charity and seen artists such as Sir Anish Kapoor, Alexa Coe, Stanley Donwood, Mustafa Halusi and Noel Fielding contributing artworks to the project. Each piece is available to buy throughout the exhibition, and then later via Print Club London’s online gallery
