WOW With bold PAT­TERNS

If you’ve fallen for a state­ment wall­pa­per but are afraid to com­mit, com­pro­mise by lim­it­ing pat­tern to just a sin­gle fea­ture wall with ad­ja­cent walls in a ton­ing shade to co-or­di­nate. Large-scale pat­terns can also work well in small spa­ces such as an en suite or cloak­room – be brave and em­brace the look with pat­tern run­ning wall to wall.

Go dark With paint­work

Paint­ing walls a deep, moody hue will add a feel­ing of lux­ury and warmth in a sit­ting room. In­stead of keep­ing with reg­u­lar white-painted wood­work and trims, which can be too much of a sharp con­trast, try paint­ing shelves, book­cases and skirt­ings in the same dark shade so the walls and wood­work blend into one for a seam­less look.

Mix and MATCH TILES

Cre­ate a patch­work-style kitchen splash­back with a mix of tiles in geo and flo­ral pat­terns. Keep to one colour, go mono for an un­der­stated look, or for a more rus­tic mix, try coloured tiles from a co-or­di­nat­ing col­lec­tion. For a bo­hemian vibe, mix it up with a ran­dom as­sort­ment of tiles in dif­fer­ent shapes, sizes and colours – cut costs by look­ing out for dis­counted end-of-line tiles.
