Take a romantic journey with print and patterns this Summer when watercolours take centre stage. Look out for bed linen, rugs, soft furnishings and art prints in gorgeous blended colours.

Structured and modern art is replaced by the relaxing fluidity of watercolour. Mix in framed prints to a picture wall to update a room, or add a rug to a living room to bring a subtle statement.

This trend is great for everyone, go bold with vibrant colours of red, blues, yellows and greens. Keep it more muted with soft tones; a popular choice now is blue and green with everything in between. And even if you are a monochrome fan, you can still have a bit of watercolour in your home.

Last year we saw a lot of floral and tropical prints on soft furnishings and in art, as well as geometric pattern continuing to be a popular choice. This year sees the two prints combined creating a clashing mix of colour, pattern and style.

Larger more bold florals are appearing on wallpapers and bed linens. Layer this up with geometric soft furnishings and accessories.

Cole & Son Ardmore collection
A great place to start is with a statement wallpaper, combined with plain furniture and then accessorized with geo pattern. Fill the walls with art, either more floral or geo inspired. The more it clashes the better.

Brass and copper tones work great when considering smaller pieces of furniture. A glass or marble topped coffee table or side table will help bring this trend together. Its very over the top and works best with darker interiors.

Cole & Son Miami wallpaper
You can go big, or small with this trend. Keep it more subtle on bedding or perhaps a couple of floral cushions on a sofa combined with a geometric rug for example.
