Want to give your place a makeover? These are our fave interior trends that won't look tired by next year.

After spending the last year largely confined to our homes, our Pinterest boards are overflowing with inspo to give our humble abodes a makeover. But like fashion, homewares trends come in and out of vogue, so it's tricky to pick decor that's on-trend but won't date in 12 months. So before you rush out to buy that zebra skin rug and matching curtains, we've rounded up seven homewares trends that we promise you won't loathe by the end of the year.

1. Linen bedding

If there's anything worth investing big bucks in, it's top-notch bedding. Linen is super comfortable and trans-seasonal, so it'll do the job throughout the seasons. Pick up a set in white or oatmeal if you're after a classic look. You can always add a splash of colour with cushions and throws when your chaotic energy is telling you to reinvent your room in a couple of months.

2. Candles

If you're not a huge fan of knick-knacks that collect dust, give your room some character with a cute candle instead. Bright bubbles, sculptural busts and shells are all trending right now. On the plus side, you can always set it alight if you get over it.

3. Funky prints

Good art never goes out of style. These simplistic sketches are super cute and subtle, so they won't clash with your furniture as your style changes. Pick up a print for a cheaper option and swap out the frames if you want to change up the vibe.

4. Coloured glassware

Sculptural yet functional, coloured glassware is a must-have. We mean, decor that can also be used to carry cocktails? We'll take 10. Purple, blue and green glassware is really popular right now but maybe opt for a classic brown or your fave colour if you want something you know you will love forever.

5. Statement mirrors

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who has the best taste of them all? That's right, you do. Irregularly shaped and pond mirrors are really having a moment right now. But if you want something a little less risque, maybe go for an arched or circle mirror that has a better chance of standing the test of time.

6. Ceramic vases

Ceramic vases are an easy way to nail that boho-chic look. Fill them with some dried flowers or leave them as-is for a minimalistic statement piece. Don't know which colour to pick? White, terracotta and other earthy or neutral tones are your safest bet.
