Homeware trends have never been more in the public eye as many people have opened up their private home spheres to their professional lives. The home office has taken on more prominence than usual – visually broadcasting to friends, family and colleagues during periods of lockdown.

Light coloured walls with wooden furniture have proven some of the more popular zoom backgrounds, with houseplants adding a wholesome touch. Bookshelves – a long standing fetish for many already – have received extra attention, with sellers noting a record high in the number of second hand book sales and specialist companies emerging to curate your own shelf to impress collection by the yard. Rattan furniture, tie dye cushions and small clear glasses with dainty dried flowers are just some of the finishing touches to renew your space with a Spring touch.
