The length of your curtains can drastically change the look of a room and while 'floor length' is the most common advice, 'floor length' can mean anything hovering a few centimetres from the floor to just gently touching or long enough to puddle onto the floor! While there are some practicalities to consider, curtain length mainly comes down to personal style. What's your favourite look? Play, Ideas, Sheer Curtains, Linen Curtains, Tidal

Heritage fabrics are a blast from the past, but not just this century. Fabric houses are going into the history books to reenvisage jacquards, embroideries, and florals for a new era. Wonky dots and other irregular shapes are also featuring in this season's furnishings. Consider how a statement rug could become a focal point. And of course, you can't go wrong with colours that feel refreshing for a spring makeover. Inspiration, Fabric Houses, Fabric Blinds

Our favourite trends coming through this winter include earth coloured tones - the warmer the better, such as pinkish browns and dirty reds. Almost the complete opposite of this is a resurgence of brutalist style design; often characterised by the use of raw or unfinished concrete or other industrial-look surfaces. And natural materials like wood, bamboo and rattan are also still going strong. Others to consider adding to your décor this winter are leather, marble and terracotta. Interiors, Muted Colors

We love seeing some 'old-fashioned' vintage aesthetics and patterns being incorporated into more modern interior designs. From floral patterns, vintage décor, and retro colour schemes, we love them all the more when they're contrasted with modern interiors with geometric shapes, smooth finishes, or muted colours. Floral curtains are an easy way to bring a vintage aesthetic to any room. Canterbury, Floral, Camellia, Large Floral Print, Floral Curtains
Vintage aesthetic combined with modern designs? Yes please!

Maximalism is in full swing, and we love the funky patterns and bright colours being brought together in this interior design trend. Maximalism is a broad style but usually focuses on a mix of patterns and colours and textures to stimulate the senses. Maximalist décor can be a collection of eccentric vases, an abundance of pillows and throws, or a blend of mismatched patterns. Anyway you do it, maximalism is pushing minimalism out the door.
