I’m a big fan of this flowing geometric-design wallpaper with its Art Deco inspiration – it’s just so right for now! Wonderfully simple and yet so effective, the dark tones and metallic hits are bang on trend. Whether you use it on a feature wall or all over, it’s guaranteed to bring warmth and depth to any room.
Here are some examples:

200 trends predictions by Natalie Pead, head of PR for Next.
My 2009 hot purchase will be this Bruno green floor lamp, Next. The retro trend is really strong on the high street this season and with their oversized dimensions and acid citrus shades, the items in the Bruno Collection are real conversation pieces. The lamp is an inexpensive statement buy for any living space.
