5 hot new looks for your home

Here’s a snapshot of the very latest decorating trends to give your home a head start. Hot off the press, we’ve got our favourite key looks for this spring, from watery floral prints to tropical brights

Decorate a neutral backdrop by mixing up coastal-themed prints in the same blue and white colourway

Studio G fabric, from the Maritime collection, £14 per m, Clarke & Clarke

Sail away

Embrace the laid-back feel of the beach with a muted colour palette of blues and greys teamed with the natural warmth of woods to create a weathered, coastal feel. Capture the essence of the seaside with a fresh new feel that’s light and airy, reminiscent of relaxed days by the coast. Simply team soft blues with sandy naturals, off-whites and greys to prevent your home looking too clinical. Add plenty of textural elements, such as throws and cushions, to achieve a cosy, welcoming feel. Finally accessorise with salvaged or weathered decorative objects to evoke coastal life.

Top tip

Add seat pads or cushions to your dining chairs, to coordinate with your blue and white scheme, preferably with removable covers that can easily be whipped off and washed.

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!
