Playful patterns


Embrace pattern, colour and interesting shapes to liven up your interiors

Bright colour combos and bold geometric shapes are huge trends this year so we’re seeing a fantastic selection of patterns on the market, which is very exciting. I think we can all benefit from a bit of happy energy in our homes and even the most sophisticated of spaces can incorporate a quirky piece or two. Whether it’s a subtle print or a crazy clash of colours, patterned accessories are the perfect way to add a pinch of personality to any space. Here are some of my favourites.
