Not at Hato HQ. We’re encouraging you to get personal this yuletide with some creative wrapping paper making to share with  your nearest and dearest. Using a mixture of collage and mark-making techniques, you will create 10 sheets of A3 wrapping paper, printed in 2 colours on our risograph printers.

If you are looking for well priced, on trend lighting then you should consider Maison Du Monde.

We spotted this great little paper & metal table lamp, which we think can work in any room, especially in the corner of a living room as a secondary light.

The shape and design gives off a gentle glow with a pattern created from the paper strips.

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.
