Repeating patterns

Follow our tips on incorporating this trend into your home

More is more. Take this approach with geometric prints by covering multiple items with your chosen material – the sofa and the curtains, for example. If you layer clashing patterns make sure they have a similar colour running through to create a sense of cohesion.

Seventies flair. Recreate the retro look with bold hexagons and sharp triangles in shades of bright orange, mustard yellow, teal and olive green, inspired by the ‘70s revival we saw on the catwalk last year. Add mid-century modern furniture to complete the style.

Subtle statements. Tone the trend down by opting for smaller scale designs or items: furniture with laser cut geometric details are contemporary; choose accessories or accent pieces with pretty, feminine patterns rather than oversized prints; for walls and drapes, a closely-knit repeat in neutral shades will add intrigue without becoming a focal point.
