Simple, stylish and perfectly on trend, Curby have created the nicest, easiest little DIY to make a great scandi table cloth.

The simple cross design in black and white is minimal and perfect for monochrome lovers but could just as easily be translated using other colours to suit your choice.

And the finished printed fabric doesn’t necessarily have to be a table cloth but could be turned into cushions, curtains or napkins!

We have seen a lot of tropical prints over the last year, so this won’t be new to most. But with fresh takes on pattern with a focus on the botanicals and feel good colours, it’s hanging around for a while longer, and a winner in many peoples eyes.

For an instant jungle vibe wallpaper is the place to start, choosing a basic palm leaf pattern or go all out with one with animals as well.

Cushions are also a great way to introduce this trend bringing print and pattern to a plain sofa or chair. Bring some fun to a dining table with palm inspired tablecloth or table runner.
