We’re looking forward to see what the London Design Festival will bring to bathrooms this year, but the latest was certainly not taken for granted by all the top designers. Each and everyone were grasping at the opportunity to showcase their new collections at any cost. We have scoured the shows to bring you the hot new trends for your bathroom and to show you how to get the latest looks – without blowing your budget on the high street.
Our favourite of this year is the flowery trend of retro; expect to see this for a while as we have been witnessing it everywhere from walls to accessories and even flooring! The wallpaper patterns, inspired by the 1950’s have been officially brought back into the 21st century, some even in shiny metallic finishes – perfect for any bathroom.
First class designers are pairing up the sweet metallic wallpaper with neutral, yet glassy surfaces and burnished hardware. Offer a little pick-me-up to any space of your home…especially the bathroom with this trendy retro botanical design.

Sometimes it’s the little things that mean the most, so if you’re a person who seems to be a believer of this motto, the small retro accessories such as cushions, bowls or rugs are the perfect trend setting feature for your home.

If you like DIYing your own retro trends, this example is rather lovely. A little bit of patience, using
some small plant cut outs, place creatively in frames and mount on the wall, this is an excellent way to introduce natural themes into any room. Combine this with some plants placed in an accent coloured vase, and there you have it, a homemade retro trend in a matter of minutes.
