Ever come back from a holiday and wish you could recreate the hotel look at home? I’m always seeking design inspiration on my travels, whether it’s five star luxury in Hong Kong, an indie Montauk beach motel or a romantic urban bolthole in Paris.
One of the easiest ways to transform your living space is to keep the foundations simple and add bold accessories such as designer furniture, a statement roman blind from Blinds UK, beautiful artwork or even small trinkets. I recently broke the uniformity of my modern, white living room with a colour-popping armchair that lifts my spirits every time I look at it – a great investment, for sure!
Here are a few interior trends for the home that never go out of style…
I’ve always had fantasies of a boudoir inspired by Marie-Antoinette, but back in the real world, this level of decadence requires a contemporary approach. Toile de Jouy brings an elegant French touch and it can be complemented by plush, light furniture or even a flash of neon to punk it up.

One of my favourite UK seaside hotels, The Gallivant in Camber Sands, is a treasure trove of boho, beachy inspiration. Whether it’s nautical stripes, driftwood furniture or azure-hued textiles, coastal style always feels fresh and makes you dream of sunnier climes and salty air.
Here are a few more ways to get that sea breeze style…
Take inspiration from fashion designers like Erdem and Mary Katrantzou with vivid, painterly florals. The bolder the better and if you need a reference point, have a spin around one of the chic Firmdale Hotels, the Designers Guild store or one of Soho’s many luxury fabric stores.
