1. The return of tie-dye
In a nod to the relaxed styling of the 1970s, we're going to be noticing tie-dyed details creeping into our homes. The more relaxed sister of ombré, tie-dye details - think cushions, curtains, rugs and so on - are perfect for adding some flair to any space.

Over the last three months, there have been over 267,000 searches for tie-dye products on Etsy - groovy, baby.

4. Wallpaper - but not on the walls!

5. Laser-cut shapes
A puzzle-esque print of simple shapes has made terrazzo topple from its top spot; we're swapping smaller patterns for larger, easier-to-define alternatives instead.

6. Walk on the wild side
Animal-inspired prints, patterns and motif are having a moment right now. Always popular with those of us who love OTT patterns and extrovert prints, it's now edging its way into homes across the country.
