Botanical trends will leave you and your home blooming with joy! Whilst ‘trends’ change and evolve, they do so at different paces – some, just like Floral wallpaper, are popular for years rather than merely a season. If the thought of flower-power wallpaper makes you flinch though, spring 2020 might just be the year you change your tune.
This year we continue to see a diverse range of floral-inspired decor; with prints ranging from wacky jungle themes to softer and prettier designs. Feminine and romantic florals are the epitome of spring, which bring a vibrant and happy feel to your home. Also, this year’s influx of botanical-inspired decor includes a fiesta of colours from bold pinks to blues, oranges and yellows and even metallic large scale versions too.
If the thought of redecorating your house entirely is a bit daunting; instead, why don’t you think about purchasing a beautiful floral Persian rug as an addition into your space. Below are a selection of our favourites:

Since the ‘millennial pink’ rage began - blush has been a favoured colour for all seasons and it has a particular charm in spring. It’s a timeless hue because of its neutrality - but also provides warmth and subtle colour to a space without going over the top.
Taking inspiration from earth minerals and shell clay, this is a colour that evokes reassurance, creating a calming environment; exactly what we need during these uncertain times. However, there are a few rules for mastering this candy colour. Steer clear of anything that reminds you of the barbie pink we are all so familiar with and keep the finish matte. The soft pastel palette works well with other chalky hues, or for a pop of colour with a subtle Persian or Oriental rug. If you want to transform your space into a cosy blush bubble, look for inner fulfilment in the perfect balance of your design scheme. It's just the kind of atmosphere where you can let your inspiration take flight.

Do you want a place in the sun? Let’s travel to Tuscany to start off our week. The first rays of daybreak awaken the appealing rustic flair of the Tuscany trend. Hailing from the shores of the Mediterranean, the Tuscany trend will fill your everyday existence with la dolce vita. Tuscany is a naturally rich land: cypress and olive groves, vineyards, orchards with dozens of the most diverse varieties of trees give the most amazing colours and smells.
Giving your home a Tuscan inspired look begins with a new colour scheme: Warm natural shades, corresponding to the climate of the Mediterranean, are very popular in the interior. Begin with neutral earthy tones, such as; the deep orange of terra-cotta and the light, buttery shade of worn plaster walls. Rich ochre and golden yellow capture the colours of a Tuscan sunflower field, the ripe fruit of a lemon tree and the warm rays of the setting sun. Classic blue reflects the colours of sea and sky while deep burgundy brings to mind a fine wine. We understand how frustrating it is to be isolated at home, but swapping up your colour scheme is a productive way to keep yourself busy in the house over the next few months. So is Italy the one for you?

Are you ready to step into spring? Inspiration is everywhere! Bring some retro fusion into your home; If it’s a classic from a bygone era, it’s big news in the world of interiors right now. Highlighting the diversity of the term retro – from a pastel colour palette to the scalloped shapes of Art Deco, through to 50’s signature furniture styles this trend covers it all.
We love the use of soft, muted pastel colours in spring! Pastel shades are among the most common, and classic colours to brighten your home for the warmer months. Not only do they mimic the outdoors, but they are the perfect way to gradually incorporate colour back into your home after the cold, darker winter months. Pinterest also revealed ‘Geometric patterns’ as a top search term this season, and we can be seeing a lot more of this style to come. Here are some of our favourite pastel toned rugs:
At this time, we all need to make an effort to follow instructions given to us by the government.
