Now that spring is finally here and summer is just around the corner, many people like to give their home a fresh new look. But you don’t have to spend thousands to do it - remember, one of the quickest and easiest ways to give any room a different look is simply by introducing a new rug.
We’ve decided to take our inspiration from interiors magazines to see what they recommend for the latest looks this season.
My Weekly magazine suggests bringing spring indoors with bright, light stylish touches. It recommends this floral rug which features these lovely large blooms in pastel colours and is available in our Tropics range. Another good idea from the article is to bring some cute bistro sets inside. Many large DIY stores offer pastel coloured table and chair sets at a reasonable price.
Period Ideas magazine is also taking its inspiration from the garden. In a feature about the latest news, inspirational ideas and expert advice on the great outdoors, they have also been inspired by our floral collections. They propose some retail therapy and bringing the outdoors in with a pretty floral home accessory and suggest this floral rug from our Kaleidoscope range will do the trick.
Bright and Beautiful
Our friends over at Cheshire Life magazine says that winter rooms will now feel a little dull and advises freshening them up with a splash of Mediterranean colour. They suggest this Vibrance rug which ‘throws down the gauntlet to spring’. They also advise on introducing some colourful lighting which if you do decide to go bold will complement the colours in this rug.
Meanwhile Making Magazine has been looking at new trends and as we have written about previously, its trend spotter page has gone to town on the painterly fashion that has been seen on the catwalks. Journalist Abi Cox has come up with ideas to translate this trend to the home and has selected our Holograph rug. She also includes some fabulous ‘painterly’ cushions which you can add to complete the look.
So freshen up your house with one of our rugs and then throw in a couple more accessories, from a new light or lamp to new cushions - and before you know it your winter home will be transformed into a space that is perfect for the forthcoming warm and sunny months.
