As part of our big picture trend Voyager covered in our Spring Summer 2011 Home forecast, we think there’ll be a print trend for cityscapes. We’ve seen a mix of urban and rural scenes gracing everything from tea towels to sofas at the shows and expect this to be a key print direction for Spring. To get this trend right, you need to add a crafted, hand-rendered element; so pencil drawings, sketches and doodles work well here. For colours go for classic black and white with a strong pop colour like the tea towel below left, or else mix up bright colours on a white ground.
