Interiors: Say it with a bright print

Interiors: Say it with a bright print

Creating an imaginative and calming space for your newborn or toddler to call their own has never been easier, prints can say it all, says Eleanor Crompton

And at this time of year what could be more calming than spreading a bit of love and peace at home? From rugs, cushions, lighting and prints (all boasting love and peace logos) designers have come up with a plethora of gorgeous goodies for you to lust after. For a supercool spin on the hippy's favourite mantra, think laterally. Motifs such as rainbows and clouds can create an equally calm environment – and that's the way to the land of nod. Zzzzz.

Bright graphic prints are a quick and easy way to pack a punch with words. Share the good times by choosing a positive motto.
