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.

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.

We discovered the amazing printing projects on Finnish photographer Kreetta’s blog Gretchen Gretchen, when browsing the Remodelista blog – and fell in love.

So creative and such simple printing ideas that are so very effective in creating beautiful modern print led patterns.

Create your own fabrics from her tutorials to in turn, make into table cloths, cushions, napkins, or even curtains – the ideas are endless.

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.
