Subtler and so much more grown-up than last year's bold graphics, the new linear retro prints look fresh and modern in a family dining room.

Five steps to get the look:

1) Use a Spirograph-inspired circle print fabric on the curtains for a softer take on contemporary style.

2) Go for a fresh feel with zesty lime walls and neutral flooring to create a calm backdrop for the scheme.

3) Choose a chunky oak table for a cosy modern-country look.

4) Mix lime tableware with duck-egg blue and retro-inspired patterned crockery for a relaxed look.

5) Continue the graphic theme with simple yet striking artwork on the walls.
