Bringing the groovy multicoloured vibes of the 1960s, tie-dye is one of the biggest trends for summer 2020. The style brings mesmerising pops of colours and patterns together to give your home accessories an extra bit of character. This isn’t about the fluorescent bold bravura of the 1990s tie-dye – the 2020 incarnation is about being subtle, simple and understated.

Think cushions and throws to create pops of tie-dye around your home. In your living space, try different size cushions with varying colours and patterns – Anthropologie offers a range of tie-dye cushions to create a chic aesthetic.

For a throw, French Connection has a washed-out tie-dye blanket which would look just as good being used outside as it would in, or opt for a dip-dyed effect with this ruby linen throw – this would work well in a room which already uses soft colours.

Subtle style in the bedroom

This bedding from John Lewis & Partners brings a marbling effect to your tie-dye style, combing white and teal to create an understated look. For a more traditional tie-dye look, opt for this coastal-inspired cover set from Catherine Langsfield, which is available on Wayfair.

For something more rich in colour, House of Hampton’s woven tie-dye quilt blends tones of deep blue to create an elegant, sophisticated look.

Artistic accents

Your tie-dye vibes shouldn’t just finish on your soft furnishings. Adding pictures, photos and features to your walls is a stylish way to incorporate this look into your home.

The joy of tie-dye is the choice of colours and patterns which can be created – meaning finding a combination to suit your space is easy.
