Update your home for the season ahead with simple, laid-back pattern
The warm, sun-drenched days of next season still seem a long way off, but you can get a glimpse of the joys of spring by planning a fresh look. Introducing pattern into your room is a quick and simple way to revamp an existing scheme for brighter days. Look out for laid-back patterns that will lend a relaxed rather than busy feel in easy-to-live-with muted colourways.
If your living room has plain walls and seating, why not add a large-format pattern on curtains or blinds? This bold graphic print from Villa Nova is ideal for stepping up the wow factor of a neutral room.
