WALL TO WALL
After interminable months dominated by grey clouds, unprecedented snowfall and gale force winds, it is little surprise that we are all welcoming the spring/summer interiors trends with open arms. One glance at glossy magazines and influential Instagram accounts tells us that there will be a handful of themes that stand out this season.
It’s official: not only is wallpaper is making a comeback, it’s set to be a key trend throughout 2021. Much of its resurgence is thought to be attributed to the advancement made in new printing techniques, which allows for a far greater range of finishes.

Furniture especially seems to be following this movement right now, although arguably a vivid teal desk might not suit everyone’s taste and/or décor. Statement fabrics seem to be capitalising on the delightful combination of pinks, greens and blues across the board, from soft furnishings and bedlinen, to wall hangings and rugs. All of which are perfect routes to inject some of this season’s kaleidoscopic feel into your home without having to venture near a pot of paint. Although, if you were so inclined, we would invite you to look no further than Farrow & Ball’s recently released – and quintessentially summery – shade, Citrona .
The ante was just raised on houseplants, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see more than just beautiful work from our
