    Prepare for an exotic burst of flamingoes, palm trees and pineapples to hit the shops with the new tropical trend for summer. Bright zesty colours are going to be everywhere, but for a slightly more subtle variation, you can’t go wrong with this pink metallic-effect pineapple embroidered cushion, £25, Marks & Spencer


    This trend has progressed, with raw materials still order of the day. From rough brick and wire to stone and cement, it’s easy to get that urban loft-living feel in your own home. This cement decorative ampersand, £5, from Wilko, looks as at home on a shelf or windowsill as it does set on the floor for a modern look.

    Scandi Brights

    Pale wood teamed with bright, bold shades and a simplistic design – what’s not to love? Circular coffee and side tables with tapered legs make our top 10 of items you need in your living room, and this Miami occasional table in yellow is a steal at just £29 from Tesco Direct.


    First we fell in love with dip-dye hair and clothes in 2014, but finally the ombre trend has filtered through to furniture and accessories. If you’re looking to give your floor a quick update, then this is a buy you’ll want to be snapping up before it sells out – Ombre rug in duck-egg, £129, Very.


    Geometric shapes have been on trend for a while now, but the latest craze is to team a print that’s been used repeatedly with a neon or bright trim or contrasting piping. If you’re not brave enough to go all out with this trend, then a small accessory like this Zigzag bone frame, £18, from Oliver Bonas, should satisfy your craving.


    If you only get on board with two trends this year, let it be pastels, and even better: pastels teamed with metallics. This cute candle holder incorporates both of these trends, with a mint-coloured base and gleaming copper top – the perfect combo for summer! Jansen + Co candle holder, £23.50, Occa-Home.


    Dark smokey blue is the new black, whether it’s painted on walls, teamed with fresh white for a more Mediterranean look, or used on accessories such as this Plume light, £99, from Made.com. Not only do we love the dark midnight colour, but the bare bulb is a statement in itself. We need this in our lives!
