The Latest Interior Trends to Brighten Your Home


Tile Style

Wood effect tiles have become an enduring trend in recent years due to the exceptional quality and variety of texture and choice of colours available. With options to suit every home decor, they can be incorporated in kitchen islands, feature walls and even used in place of a bed headboard.

Ideal for high traffic areas such as hallways, kitchens, bathrooms and conservatories, the main benefits of porcelain are strength and durability. Ragno have several ranges of Italian wood effect porcelain offering an extensive choice of colours. The tiles come in various sizes which can be mixed or laid in a herringbone pattern to add an interesting look to any room. Available from Tubs & Tiles, Ballybrit, Galway,

During the spring and summer months, we like to surround ourselves with bright and fresh colours. As the seasons change, long, dark evenings creep into our home and we find oursleves craving warmth and cosiness. With a few minor changes, you can transform the look and feel of your home instantly.


A new throw on the bed, fluffy blankets and fabric cushions can transform your bedroom into a luxurious and relaxing retreat.


Textured rugs and wool cushions add enough impact to create an instant autumn winter feeling. Go a step further and replace seat covers, curtains or upholstery. Adding metallic or wooden picture frames and paintings can introduce variety and difference also.


Put away your bright summer decorations – they will look even nicer when you retrieve them next year!


Turn your home into a cosy sanctuary and hide away on chilly winter days. Place fluffy blankets on furniture to wrap yourself in when the evenings get colder. Play with fabric, swatch books and magazines and place small lights in dark corners.  Flavour your home with your favourite candle scents. From statement lanterns to super sweet tea lights, they’re the perfect accessory to brighten your new season home.
