CHEQUERBOARD

Although black-and-white chequered floors are a design classic, the new chequerboard is bolder, brighter and working its way up onto walls.

Chestnut browns and rusty reds lend themselves particularly well to checked kitchen walls ­– and achieving this look is easier than you may think. Annie Sloan’s chalk paints can be used to create a grid design on flooring and tiles without the need to sand, prime or retile.

OPEN SHELVING

Kitchen shelving is now so much more than just rows of wood: think of it as an opportunity to marry storage and aesthetics.

Choose from an array of decorative metal brackets and add a café-style rail underneath with hooks for your favourite saucepans, tea towels and herbs. Then enjoy positioning stacks of crockery, glass jars, vintage finds and pot plants on top for an endlessly versatile display.

WIDE STRIPES

Although delicate pinstripes and ticking will always have their place, the stripe of the moment is big, bold and high-impact, with bright colours on white à la vintage deckchair.

Wide-striped tablecloths and cushions are an easy way to freshen up a space; continuing the motif on wallpaper or painted walls is not for the faint hearted, but the effect can be spectacular – or pair with block-printed florals to soften the look.

Mediterranean-style splatterware will instantly add joie-de-vivre to your dining table. Hot Pottery’s speckled dinnerware is a firm favourite amongst interior aficionados, and the motif is now appearing everywhere from TOAST to Emma Bridgewater.

No need to go all out, though – splatterware or speckled designs look best as shots of colour mixed in with other crockery to create an inviting tablescape.

PASTEL KITCHENS

Swathes of white or neutral cupboards in a kitchen can seem sterile; pastels, on the other hand, reflect light around while injecting a dash of colour and are, understandably, growing in popularity.

Pale pinks, like the, pictured, are warm and inviting, ideal for farmhouse kitchens – or consider feel-good botanical shades such as lichen or sage green.

FOLKSY FEEL

Rich, warm and whimsical: there’s a lot to love about folk style, which is having something of a revival. Look for vibrant shades of blue, terracotta and crimson, geometric trims, naïve floral motifs and rustic pieces in distressed wood.

RUG LAYERING

Rugs instantly add warmth and texture, so what could be cosier than a cluster of rugs draped decadently over each other?

Aim for a cohesive palette of three or four colours in different patterns and sizes for a relaxed eclectic look, or layer a patterned rug onto a plain jute base to create a smart border design.

THE HAND-PAINTED TOUCH

Everyone wants unique, personal interiors, so it’s no surprise that we are starting to see everything from walls to woodwork embellished with intricate painted designs.

Artisans like Tess Newall, Dingley Dell Creative and Chantal Papillon Rankine hand-decorate vintage furniture to create bespoke statement pieces – or opt for ceramics with expressive, painterly motifs and loose brushwork for a colourful wall or dresser display.

TRELLIS WALLPAPER

First conceived by William Morris in 1864 inspired by his courtyard garden, trellis wallpaper is hardly new – but with an increased desire to bring the outside in, this bountiful design is having a resurgence.

Ideally suited to fresher spaces like bathrooms, utility rooms and south-facing bedrooms, fully commit by wrapping wallpaper up around the ceiling, too. Keep to the same palette for furniture and trims, or pick just one additional accent colour to keep the look crisp.
