With many of us stuck in our homes for long stretches, interior trends have become increasingly important.

Expect to say goodbye to white and minimalism; this year is bringing bright hues and bold patterns if the trends from the Sydney Gift Fair in February were anything to go by.

Here are some of the hottest home trends you can expect:

Checkerboard and Gingham

These eye-catching prints are nostalgic - they remind us of a simpler, cosier time.

These checks have had their moment in fashion, and now they're moving into the home.

Home Republic Vintage Washed Linen Check Sheet Separates, from $159.99 for a single set are a great option, as is this Sheridan Shaye Sheet Set, from $100 for a single set.

80s patterns and shapes

Think pastel brights, summery tones, organic patterns and lots of free-form shapes.

This Linen House Shakira Cotton Quilt Cover, $195.95, with its peachy, pastel tones epitomises 80s style.

You could also look at these Muse Chester Feather Cushions, $69.95 each, in a range of ice cream tones.

Curves

Corners are gone!

This year it's all about soft curves and archways.

We love this Sofia Boucle 3 Seat Sofa, $1999 and the matching Sofia Boucle Armchair, $999, from Lounge Lovers.

Zen zones

This year, the home is all about calm.

COVID means we've spent more time there than ever before - often meaning people are crammed in small spaces together.

A zen zone gives people a quiet space to escape - fill it with cushions, candles, crystals and a feeling of calm.

A large cushion like this Muse Asscher Large Oblong Cushion, $119, is a great way to get comfy in a small nook or space.

Pop a couple of candles at a safe distance, such as this Pretty in Pink Glasshouse fragrance, $54.95, and you'll be chilled out in no time.
