The feature wall may have fallen out of favor, but decorative paint effects have not. Adding a block of color to define a study or dining room, for example, is an easy way to add interest to a featureless room – and it’s much faster and cheaper than repainting the whole thing. ‘space. In the image above, a Teal wall has been painted with a block of Midnight Navy, both from Crown, which adds subtle drama.

Likewise, painting window frames in a bold tone that contrasts with the rest of the room is another way to add a splash of color, without committing to a whole new look, and it’s a job that can be done in a day. Even ugly uPVC windows can be given a smart new look with a coat of color – give them a good clean first and use an all surface primer such as Little Greene’s Intelligent ASP.

The images above (center and right) show how a single strip of color can transform a room by highlighting architectural elements. Opt for a contrasting color for impact, such as the thin band of Peanut Shell around the fireplace and the woodwork in a room painted Knoxville Grey, both by Benjamin Moore. Painting bolder stripes in a deeper shade of the wall color (here Cross Stitch and Made With Love, both from Crown) creates a tonal look.

Replace clinical cabinets with comfort kitchens

White is perhaps still the most popular choice when it comes to kitchens; but the minimalistic, handleless kitchen with all the clutter and appliances hidden from view is replaced in the style stakes with a warmer, more natural look – perfect for those who want a more soothing space to make their morning coffee. Think cabinet doors in rich, spicy colors – like in this kitchen (pictured) from Neptune, painted in mustard – and tactile bronze or leather handles.

As for accessories, textiles such as tea towels and chair cushions add more warmth and softness, and artwork or plates hanging on the wall bring personality to what can be a functional room. . For shelves and countertops, to create a reassuring environment of organized clutter (rather than clutter), keep vases, crockery and wooden cutting boards exposed, and hide less pretty things in cupboards and baskets .

Ever since Gwyneth Paltrow revealed her California home earlier this year — complete with a scenic mural in her dining room — the wallpaper mural has had something of a moment.

If getting ready in the morning feels more like a chore than a treat, it's time to upgrade your dressing table.  We think your daily routine will be instantly upgraded with the addition of a sleek new dressing table with storage to fit all your daily essentials.  Styling your dressing table and creating a polished look is also a great way to add personality to your bedroom or dressing room (lucky you).  Vanity mirrors also help brighten your room by reflecting light and adding depth.  What size dressing table should I buy?  If you have a lot of floor space to fill, invest in a large dressing table.  Due to their multi-functional nature, a great design can work for a multitude of uses in addition to being where you get ready in the morning.  A large vanity with storage — especially drawers or concealed shelves — helps keep your bedroom clutter-free.  Small vanities can also be ultra-functional, also serving as small offices and the perfect place to work from home.  To save space, vanity stools can be neatly stored underneath to keep valuable floor space clear.  Alternatively, corner vanities are brilliant space savers, filling in empty corners to make the most of otherwise unused space.  Where should I place a dressing table?  When it comes to choosing a location for your dressing table, light is paramount, both in terms of preparation and in order to maximize the feeling of space in your room.

Designer Claret, which launched in the spring, sells artist-designed murals in bespoke sizes, made to order – as well as printing customers’ own designs; botanical designs are currently in vogue.

Consider framing your mural by creating a frame from decorative moldings such as chair rail, which are cheap to buy at hardware stores and can be painted to blend in with the wall or chosen in a contrasting color.

Anyone with a passing knowledge of Instagram or Pinterest will have noticed that the scalloped edge is the shape of summer. Forget boxy shapes and clean lines: it’s safe to say that it’s no longer hip to be boxy.

The cottagecore movement, with its penchant for pretty pattern, is partly responsible for this microtrend: the scalloped edge of a classic ruffled cushion is replicated on everything from bed linens, table linens and crockery to mirrors. and light fixtures; and if it’s rattan or gingham, so much the better.

Curvecore, as it might be called, also applies to furniture: modern, monolithic sofas and armchairs popular in the 2000s now look decidedly old, while curved sofas and sleek armchairs bring both softness and one-piece style (see the Venus Armchair by Soane Britain, the original design that started the vogue for pretty scalloped back chairs).

Replace TV dinners with maximalist tableware

The tableware trend that accelerated during lockdown is still going strong and has sparked a taste for patterned tablecloths, mixing tableware and colorful glassware. A good tablecloth is the shortest route to an elegant table and an easy way to turn a casual midweek dinner into an event. Plus, if your dining table doubles as a WFH desk during the day, throwing a tablecloth over it at 6 p.m. is a quick way to mark the end of the workday and set a different mood for the evening.

The new Quince Garden collection from Daylesford (pictured), in collaboration with Colefax & Fowler, features beautiful fabrics inspired by ancient botanical art, which would look just as good with plain white crockery as they do with decorative painted plates.

For those who prefer a more understated look, Cultiver, which recently arrived in the UK, has a good range of premium, neutral-coloured European linens.

Replace boring bedrooms with quirky headboards

Calming bedrooms might be all the rage as we try to get sleep habits back on track after the pandemic — but quiet doesn’t have to mean boring. The beauty of an on-trend headboard is that it gives the room a tailored look and, potentially, a pop of pattern – but since it sits behind the pillow, it doesn’t distract the eye when you try to fall asleep.

The latest headboard designs are oversized (a good visual trick to make the bed appear larger and more plush), with a trendy scalloped design (see above) and covered in a floral or botanical pattern.

For a budget option, find a used rattan headboard and spray paint it – or simply paint a headboard shape directly on the wall behind the bed.
