Design director of Harlequin, Claire Vallis, new trends for 2009 predictions.

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:

Natural products that are both stylish and practical will be an important trend this season.

Retro Brights

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.

For Spring 2009, we’ll be upholstering some of our more traditional models in bolder, more contemporary fabrics, so expect to see lots of pretty florals in brighter colours, such as pink and yellow.
