ADD A HINT OF PRINT

Pattern and colour are making a welcome return to our homes. Here’s how to make them work, whatever your style

Colourful prints are making a comeback everywhere from the coolest boutique hotels to the country’s most stylish homes. Even if you’re more of a minimalist, you can still embrace the trend in a subtle way that won’t overwhelm your interiors. Follow these three easy rules for guaranteed pattern perfection.

1. Choose designs you love. Try classic stripes, simple abstract prints or pattern in a single colour, like the rug shown here.

2. Stick to two or three colours that complement each other, from sunny yellow with sky blue to subtle shades of pink and grey.

3. Get creative: there are plenty of ways to add a pop of print, from cushions to crockery. Patterned bedding or towels will give your bedroom or bathroom an instant refresh, while our vases include beautiful handcrafted pieces that are easy to mix and match. Or why not think of pattern as art for your home and frame a gallery of designs you love – from art prints to wallpaper samples and greetings cards.
