What are the pattern trends for 2017 that we should know about? Greenery and leafy prints are still big, as are contemporary florals. There's also a move towards bespoke patterns that have more of a hand-painted look. A great example is the new Halsted fabric collection with its bright punchy colours and muted greys.
Any rules you can share for playing with pattern? You need to decide how brave you are and work from there. Some people love loads of pattern on everything from the walls, sofa, chairs and cushions to curtains and rugs, while others feel comfortable with the odd cushion and maybe an accent wall with wallpaper. The simple rule for me is that it should all work in harmony.
