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.

Vintage florals is a trend to see you through the seasons with its lightness and beauty that doesn’t feel out of place near winter throws, velvet furniture and cosy nights nor out of place with rattan furniture, white walls and natural rugs.

It can be incorporated boldly with whole walls of tiling or wallpaper, clashing layers of cushions or an eclectic gallery wall of prints but also can be done subtly. A simple print on a wall, a feature armchair in a minimal room or random tiles dotted amongst plain on a splash back.

If you love the look of modern patterned wallpapers – dots, arrows, paint daubs, triangles, or Victorian and Moroccan prints – but need a more affordable options, try stencilling.

There’s been a huge rise in modern style stencils available, especially on Etsy, that offer an affordable creative way to achieve great feature designs on a wall without having to use wallpaper.

The advantage is it’s easy to change as you can paint straight over the paint, as opposed to painting over wall paper or stripping the wallpaper!

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.

Definitely one of the strongest colours for the season. With a neutral yet warm feel, a nod to vintage and perfect as a highlight or accompaniment to many other colours, mustard is a great tone to introduce to an interior.

Mustard works well with olive, teak or walnut wood tones. It is a stand out tone to use in a mostly neutral and white interiors. We love it with other colours of the season – rust orange and olive green.

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.
