Claire Vallis, Harlequin Design Director, on new forecast trends for 2009.
I’m a huge fan of this flowing geometric design wallpaper with its Art Deco inspiration – it’s spot on right now! Wonderfully simple and yet so effective, the dark tones and metallic hits are all the rage. Whether you use it on a wall or anywhere, it is guaranteed to bring warmth and depth to any room.
Here are some examples:
The wallpaper was available from Harlequin, the Hedda pillowcase from IKEA, the silver wave vase from John Lewis and the Chappell rug from Argos.

Stylish and practical natural products will be an important trend this season.

200 trend predictions from Natalie Pead, PR director of Next.
My hot buy in 2009 will be this green floor lamp from Bruno, Next. The retro trend is very strong on the high street this season and with their oversized dimensions and acidic citrus colors, the items in the Bruno collection are real conversation pieces. The lamp is an affordable purchase price for every living space.
