Think outside the box when it comes to wanting art or pictures on your walls. The design and imagery that are on plates are often works of art and hanging them can create a modern, unique decorative display on a wall.
Plate displays, instead of traditional picture hanging, can give many different looks and follow different trends.
Using floral or vintage style plates can give a country chic look, homely and colourful, with mixing up colours and patterns to look eclectic and retro.
For minimal and monochrome trends try typography based designs or geometric patterned plates.
Or when an interior is all about a specific colour then it’s all about matching that colour; and different patterns, designs and illustrations can look great if they are all in the same colour or a spectrum of shades of the same colour.

A very simple way to freshen up a room and bring a new feel to a space is by using soft furnishings, especially cushions. This can also be an inexpensive way of updating a sofa or chair by changing existing covers. This Summer the big trend is graphic print, and statement imagery. A good place to start is hm.com which has some gorgeous digital and geometric cushions cover from only £3.99. The colour pallete is quite muted with blues, greens and grey. One or two of these designs mixed with some plain cushions works really well. Be more adventurous by clashing geometric with strong imagery like the camera design cushion from violetandpercy.com.
Have some fun when picking cushions, pick one or two illustrated or cartoon options for individual chairs. For a cohesive look in a room try and match colours tonally with the the rest of the room. Maybe pick out a colour you have on a wall or with a rug you already have. Alternatively mix up the colours and prints and go wild.
We all buy and collect items for our homes that we love, but sometimes trying to create a specific style or look through different rooms can be difficult. This year a big trend is to go eclectic and have an ‘anything goes’ moto.
Mix different materials and textures together, old and new, soft nuetral tones with bright pops of colour.
With furniture look at combining a modern unit sat next to something more vintage – mid century style furniture works great.
Pick strong geometric or digital printed cushions or throws and mix with a traditional Egyptian rug.
To achieve this look you don’t have to worry too much about what you are placing where, it’s very much about dressing your rooms without rules.
Mix different chairs around a dining table, this way you get to have all the styles you like on one space, whether plastic, wooden or metal.
[ Use this same thinking when entertaining by mixing different printed plates and bowls so everybody gets a different combination ].
This trend is all about embracing various styles and playing with old and new. Sit industrial next to ornate and rustic next to minimal. Find the balance that works for you. Of course this look isn’t about a cluttered collection of pieces, it’s about cleverly pairing different styles in selected areas of a room.
