Trend alert... Moroccan blue

Give your home a sunny Moroccan vibe
Background wallpaper Morocco Indigo wallpaper from Neo collection, £50 per roll, Prestigious Textiles

Deep inky indigo and bold cobalt are the perfect update for the Moroccan trend, making it a great choice for spring and summer, and giving it a contemporary twist. Team layers of blue with clean white for a fresh scheme that’s eye-catching, yet relaxing. Keep an equal balance of blue to white, making sure there’s enough blue to compensate for how brilliant white can look cold in our limited sunlight.

Once you’ve got the colours sorted, look at design and pattern. Consider intricate Moorish fretwork and ornate hand-painted tiles, as well as Ikat and Batik fabrics and geometric patterns. Layer pattern-on-pattern for an eclectic look, combining different tones and materials. Accessorise with blue glazed ceramics, detailed lanterns and piles of cushions and throws.

About Your Home Magazine

At last we can kiss goodbye to the dark, dreary days of winter and look forward to the lighter, brighter days of spring. Easter comes early this year, so to celebrate we’ve put together some scrummy recipe ideas that are perfect if you’re having family and friends over during the Easter weekend (p.100). And, if you want to make it extra special, why not try your hand at our beautiful Easter craft projects to decorate your dining table too (p.60)? If you’re planning to make the most of the long bank holiday weekend with a spot of decorating, make sure you take a look at our brilliant eight-page spring trends forecast on page 36. We’ve picked the five hottest looks from the high street, so whether you’re drawn to laid-back coastal blues, eye-popping tropical brights or calming candy colours, you’re sure to find some inspiration for your new colour scheme. Sick of waiting for your other half to do the decorating? Then turn to page 66, where we’ll guide you step by step through the basics of tiling. I know the bank holiday is the time of year when many of you are ready to get back out in the garden. So on page 114, you’ll find our suggestions for which plants to include in your beds and borders to guarantee your garden is full of colour all year long – yes, even in winter! Finally, if like me, your pets are important members of your family, then make sure you read our low-down on pet insurance on page 18. Your furry friends will thank you!
