LISA READ is designer of soft furnishings at M&S
THE BIG NEW TREND
Bold prints, striking monochromes and eyecatching geometrics are key looks this season. Velvet continues to be popular, especially in a beautiful new cobalt blue.
It has to be the glamorous new cobalt velvet Hendrix corner sofa from our collection. The colour works really well against a plain wall, and the soft velvet feels very luxurious.
If you’re looking for an easy update, let your upholstery do the talking – bold prints make a great statement in any room.
Don’t be afraid to pair striking colours together – teal and ochre tones work well next to each other for a fantastically rich, sumptuous feel.
Add plenty of cushions, work with tones of the same colour, and mismatch fabrics and prints for the most up-to-date look.
Make bedtime sumptuous. Bree pendant, £49.50; cushions from £12; throw, £149; Shibori bedset, from £25; all M&S
