The perennial interior style favourite – florals – is with us in abundance, once again. Look out for trailing flower patterns, oversized blooms and traditional toiles, which can be mixed and matched together for a joyous floribunda fantasy. Keep the scheme contemporary by introducing understated furniture in mid-tone wood and aged metal.

Moving on from schemes inspired by a single region, this trend sees several cultural styles teamed together in a colourful and lively mismatch. Ikat designs combine with Scandi geometrics and bold Mexican hues. This inclusive style is particularly useful for bringing warmth and definition to open-plan spaces.

Look out for furniture and accessories brought into sharp focus with details picked out in vivid colour. These pieces are great for drawing attention to key areas in a contemporary scheme, but be wary of overdoing the effect. The trick is to add them sparingly, against a pale or dark pared-back backdrop, for an element of surprise.

Marble and brass
This exciting juxtaposition of cool, elegant marble with the warmth of bold brass provides an eyecatching focal point in a room. A marble and brass coffee table, for instance, will pull together a living room decorated in soft pastels or shades of grey, providing a degree of contrast without dominating the look.

The trend for geometric patterns and shapes continues but this season a pastel colour palette gives the hard lines a softer look.

The swirling patterns, contrasting textures and glittering metallic highlights of minerals and semi-precious stones are the bedrock of this trend. Seen on everything from wallpaper to rugs and tabletop accessories, the look is perfect for those who want to capture a natural theme – with a touch of bling.

Oversized leaf patterns in rich shades of green will be bursting into life this spring and summer. Give your bedroom a tropical feel with palm print bedlinen set against pale wood furniture and a natural fibre rug. Or simply ring the changes on a living room sofa with fern patterned cushions and framed botanical drawings on the wall.
