Explore the global trends

Get into the Rio 2016 spirit with a whistle-stop tour around three major home décor styles

The Rio Olympics kick off on August 5th (come on Team GB!) and we’ve marked the occasion by filling the next few pages with interior inspiration from around the globe. First, we take a trip to Brazil, the host country for this year’s games and somewhere that’s certainly not short on colour confidence. Ikea’s limited edition range definitely gets gold from us. Next, we travel a little closer to home for a look at French country style; we’ve unearthed the best bargains to cheat the style. And finally, we end our journey with a stay in Morocco, a place that has inspired one of the most enduring decorating trends for the last few seasons. Pick up tips on colour schemes, tiles and the low-down on a fabulously affordable supermarket range. Bon voyage!


Totally tropical

Rainforest chic couldn’t be more popular this summer, and H&M is leading the pack with its bird-adorned floral accessories and zingy yellow patterns.

Cushion cover, £3.99, H&M

Coasters, £1.99 for four, H&M

Let it rain

Cushion covers, from £2.99; striped picnic blanket, £14.99; cooler bag, £12.99; lanterns, from £3.99; all H&M

Magical monochrome

For a taste of the trend without the colour commitment, monochrome patterns are the way to go. Amidst Ikea’s Tillfälle collection you’ll find accessories with beautiful curved geometric patterns, which can easily slide into your existing scheme to give it a fun Brazilian twist. The two-sided cushion covers are one of the biggest bargains; they’re just £4 each.

About Homestyle

The sun is shining, the weather is sweet, makes you want to... Decorate every room in the house! (Whilst moving our dancing feet, obviously.) Summer gives us all a fresh burst of energy, so we’ve packed this entire issue with ways to bring in the brightness, whether that’s emulating Nova William’s colour-pop interiors on page 14 (check out the Nova-inspired neon accessories on page 22, too) or de-cluttering from top to bottom, just like Claire Stewart (p.50). And for a 1950s burst of kaleidoscopic cool, flip to page 100 for a beach hut makeover like no other. Got the holiday blues? Hang on to that sunshine feeling with our round-up of the biggest Global trends from three vibrant countries: Brazil, France and Morocco. It also doubles-up as fab Olympic party prep – you’ll find loads of savvy buys for getting the Rio 2016 look. Besides the bold and beautiful interior eye candy, we’ve been digging into what makes our homes healthier places to live. From chemical-free plastics and low-VOC paints and dust-free flooring, HomeStyle’s Abbi has found the best ways to live naturally. And if you’ve spent all your pocket money on ice creams and piña coladas, don’t worry – there are six budget-friendly upcycling projects on page 76 to get stuck into, plus incredible prizes to win on pages 59, 122 and 123. We’ve got our fingers crossed for you.
