Layer inky-blue wallpapers to add depth and vibrancy – install an art-like focal point by framing one shade.

Explore tonal harmony by using the whole of a palette – from soft, pastel blue to the deepest azure.

Create a subtle, impressionist mood with colourwashed patterns owing across every surface.

Bold black and white brush strokes have a Rothko-like look – stipple ceramics for a similar effect.

Fabrics feature finer lines, swirling in monochrome patterns. Set against a wide-striped floor for contrast.

Introduce pencil-thin geometrics and ink-blot motifs to play with scale and form.

Use reversible colours and prints on a single piece to create a contemporary, op-art design.

Team graphic textiles with faux concrete and graffiti for a streetwise statement.

Keep the urban vibe alive with hand-drawn doodles in vibrant shades. Been there, tagged that...
