designer Holly Keeling (www.holly keeling.co.uk; 07835 100577) said: “Modern trends for 2012 include a mix of light and comfy designs, so if you have any large mirrors these are in fashion at the moment and can be hung on dark walls to bounce the light around a room and also make it feel more spacious. Repaint tired old mirror frames in a light-coloured paint to bring the room scheme together. “Introduce a wall with some of your


favourite wallpaper to bring some pleasure to a tired part of the room. With such a wealth of beautiful wallpapers at the moment, there is something for everyone, from Clarke & Clarke’s new wallpaper range starting at £34 per roll or the fabulous Little Greene Company’s extensive range of beautiful wallpapers up to £70. Introduce it into an area of the house which you feel has been neglected or needs excitement.”


Mix it up Putting a stripy cushion next to a floral one, or something bold next to something pastel, might be too much for traditionalists, but for the more adventurous it’s all about breaking the rules and mixing it up this season. John Hatch from G&H Interiors of


Honiton (www.gandhinteriors.co.uk; 01404 42063) said: “This spring and summer sees the continuing theme of eclectic mixes of ethnicity and colour combined with layers of plain, pattern and texture. Launches have included those of Osborne & Little, Nina Campbell and Lorca, each collection showcasing texture, layer and colour. “They prove that there’s nothing wrong


with mixing multiple patterns and colours – just keep one of the colours common to all designs, and you have the connection. You’d think it wouldn’t work, but it does. “With the dark days of winter behind


us, there’s an uplifting feel in the interiors world. Bold, bright colour, texture and pattern – all there to make up a richer tapestry in life and to give us cheer and vigour for the year ahead.” Annalisa Patient at DUO Interiors


said: “Fabric prints are still influenced by


The Arden collection from design house Zoffany in association with artist Melissa White is a perfect expression of this season’s nature and heritage themes (available from Sidmouth Design)


Moroccan and Indian styles, but mix them with modern furniture and rich velvets.” Sandra O’Connor at Olivia James


Design said: “Be brave, use a mixture of colours – strong and muted – for great impact. It will make you dream of a summer rose garden.” Holly Keeling said: “Bold ethnic designs


are still strong for the season, mixing geometric bold patterns to create striking schemes, being careful in keeping the colour scheme the same. “A few soft cushions can liven up any


tired home and create an excitement of pattern to your home. Jane Churchill’s range of striking stripes in linen and cottons will make any home stylish.”


Go wild in the country Florals and ‘botanicals’ were major interiors trends last year, and this natural theme continues, encompassing creatures as well. Annalisa Patient at DUO Interiors said: “Animal and bird designs, especially
