A recent survey has highlighted, region by region, what home furnishing styles we are most keen to welcome into our homes and the results might surprise you.

Just because you are a savant of minimalist furniture, it doesn't mean that everybody else in your area has followed suit. In fact, they might all be secret leopard print fanatics behind closed doors! 

From kitchens to bathrooms and everything in between, come and see what your region favours in terms of styling and see if you love it too…

South East—Bright and Bold Colours (19%)

Those in the lower part of the country sure know how to liven up your homes, with bold and colourful schemes. Block colours are go!
