While DIY Doctor is at the Ideal Home Show we have been looking around at the trends for next season in the home. Here are the 3 hot tips for interiors:

Floral abundance – mix bright floral fabrics with cushions, rugs and other soft furnishings and set them off with light neutral walls and floors to create a room that is full of style and character.

Sea Breeze – take inspiration from beach-front living with weathered whitewashed wood, and striped fabrics in neutral shades and washed-out blues. Then kick back and relax in this calm environment, perfect antidote to today’s fast pace of living!

Functional fifties –post war interiors were all about pared-down style and streamlined profiles, rediscover this look with blonde wood, teak and rosewood furniture teamed with graphic style prints and Scandinavian ceramics.

Linda Barker is presenting in the ‘How To’ theatre today at 11.30, 1.30 and 3.30, with her own tips for how to transform your interiors incorporating your own style.
