Be bold and embrace the beauty of wallpapers that have strong large prints of flowers, shapes and geometric designs.

There are different ways to style the trend and you can choose to be more maximalist or have a clean, minimal style.

To go for a bold look, maximise the clashing strong designs; use various flower prints, various illustrative prints or shape designs to layer up a rich look. Look for sofas, armchairs, soft furnishings that the patterns sit together by colour but have variance in size and design.

Alternatively opt to just have the bold impact of the wallpaper and have far simpler plain accessories and furniture. Pull out a few colours from the wallpaper to have block colours for the sofa and chair or bed linen. Metallic highlights in chair or bed frames, homeware pieces, framed artwork or ceramics can be very effective to add dimension to the room.

You can also create more depth to a room by pulling one colour from the wall paper to use as a solid paint colour on the other walls. Think about papering the largest wall, most likely where the sofa goes, for a more modern look; instead of the more traditional ‘feature wall’ idea of the wall with the chimney breast and fireplace.

Gentle soft palette, bringing the outdoors in and layering botanical patterns but breaking up with stretches of plain pale colours to stop it becoming too busy.

Use light mustards, greens, mauves and white together with botanical pale prints.

This look is calming and beautiful for a bedroom or lounge.

Add to this look with mango wood, rattan or white painted wood furniture. It’s a great idea to search eBay or furniture charity shops for pieces to suit the look, but Urban Outfitters, La Redoute and Maison Du Monde all have vintage style rattan and wood options.

Available across the high street and quite a timeless trend.

This year sees us being more brave with our interiors and particularly our bathrooms.

Bright pattern and imagery has pushed away subtle shades and plain tiling. It’s all about going maxamilist in your bathroom this year.

Wallpaper from westonebathrooms.com

An option that is growing in popularity is wall murals, be it on tiles or wallpaper. Although these can be quite expensive to have made to measure, the effect is dramatic and so worth it. The go to pattern is still florals, which you can understand as they create the drama at the same time bringing a softness to a room.

If you are feeling brave look at painting tiles yourself or getting an artist to commission something special.

An alternative to tiles is waterproof wallpaper which can give you the same tile like effect to look at but it’s much simpler to put up. West One Bathrooms do a beautiful range of wallpapers.

Deeper colour palette, rich tones and the flora abundant in winter, brings all the warmth to an interior for winter.

Using reds, purples and oranges, various sizing of floral patterns and dark woods, this winter floral trend combines a love of maximalism and floral interiors.

Break up the mix of pattern with dark plain walls or plain seating fabrics. Use dark greens, charcoals or reds in wall paint with burnt oranges, rich purple or bark for curtains and throws.
