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.

PER­SONAL FAVOURITE

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.

TOP TIPS

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
