Still a strong trend, the terrazzo pattern is very popular on a variety of homewares from ceramics to bed linen, and tiling to tableware.

We love it in its traditional location – covering walls and floors. Achieve a great terrazzo look with this wallpaper from Munks & Me.

It even comes with free wallpaper glue and is the preferred paste the wall for application which is much easier for less experienced wallpaperers.

Concrete in interiors is a strong trend and there’s a plethora of homeware that use the effect, material or colour in their design.

Floors and walls in concrete create a beautiful effect for an interior but it’s not always possible to introduce it for walls in a home already built or if the budget isn’t there to completely re lay floor, but with the ever advancing of wallpaper design and quality, you can obtain an effective realistic look for your walls with wallpaper.

We found this gorgeous semi gloss concrete look wallpaper by East Urban Home from Wayfair.

Priced from £66.99 per roll.

The herringbone trend has had a rise in popularity during the last couple of years, although it’s never ever really been out of favour.

It’s a classic look, a design-minded pattern and now this herringbone format has found new places to feature, not just floors and walls in wood or ceramic, but also cupboard fronts, kitchen doors, table tops and the pattern even transfers into fabrics and of course has always been a knitting pattern – thriving at the moment for throws and cushions.
