Spring into action with the latest flooring trends.
Snowdrops and daffodils are popping up everywhere, reminding us that Spring is on its way. It’s that glorious time of year when colours outside change from gloomy grey to bright and cheerful and it’s the perfect time of year to take inspiration from the season and celebrate colour at home.
Colour trends for 2017 are looking optimistically brighter than the sedate greys dominating 2016 and this is optimistic news for the flooring industry. We are seeing an explosion of experimental colours and iconic patterns, which are sure to bring us out of our comfort zones and tempt us to try something new and daring.
Alternative Flooring have set the pace this year by teaming up with Liberty Fabrics and creating four stunning designs in a contemporary mix of bright colours based on original designs by William Morris. The new range is a fabulous blend of old and new and introduces a burst of pattern and colour to 2017 flooring trends. We particularly like Flowers of Thorpe, Summer Garden.
If you have a passion for colour and pattern, you might also like Quirky B Geo range, which comes in a modern geometric pattern in vibrant red, damson and soft duck egg blue.
When it comes to stair runners Roger Oates have a vast array of pretty Spring and Summer inspired colours to choose from. Kyoto Blossom and Kobe Blossom as their names suggest are inspired by cherry blossoms and come in bright pastel non-symmetrical stripes to make a beautiful interior statement. These 100% wool, flat-weave carpets are ideal for narrower stairs and can be used as an area carpet too. We also love the Whitman Bright Rose flatweave design, which is a traditional and smart design with a contemporary twist. Inspired by folk embroidery, the stylish herringbone pattern creates detail and texture using a chic edited palette. The ‘Bright Rose’ colour way offers an irresistibly pretty splash of colour to any interior décor.
