Taking inspiration from the landscapes, colours and textures from around the globe can result in a truly show stopping interior scheme.
We look at four of our current favourite colours and themes and how to choose a natural flooring partner.
There is nothing shrinking violet about this bold colour scheme. Choosing a bold coloured paint adds a dramatic foundation to add popping colours in bright pinks and turquoise. It is really worth spending time to source varying textures such as these velvet chairs to add that luxury feel and a variety of texture. Updating this design is really easy with an eclectic mix of accessories that can be rotated to always add interest.
We chose three floors that are all about the texture without distracting from the overall feel. The Sisal Boucle Cumin adds a touch of far flung places and works really well with bright painted furniture. Petra Black Weft adds another dimension with geometric pattern. The paler looks of Coastland Sand are a calming alternative and allows the bright colours to do the talking.

This isn’t a new trend but it is certainly an endearing one. Texture is the key and using plant and earth inspired colours really help provide a natural feel to your design. Using a layering technique with a mixture of textures and plants provides an overall cohesive style. This is a great option for homeowners who love to source an eclectic mix of accessories which can be mix and matched for an added bohemian style.
We took inspiration from our Aurora Coir runners when looking at flooring partners for this theme. The first is the gorgeous coir texture which highlights the natural material element. Secondly, the colours are all inspired by the natural palettes of muds, grasses and sands and the patterns create a mesmerising feature that works well with the eclectic styling of this trend.

We love the endearing use of retro styled furniture and the move for upcycling has seen vintage furniture get dusted off and reused in modern settings. They work particularly well with abstract themes and in this example, we can see how they work with a calming earth inspired palette. A hint for getting inspiration for this palette is to take a look in your own kitchen cupboard. Spices and herbs can provide a great source of colour inspiration and mustard colours in particular have seen a rise in popularity this year. Pair this with smoked paprika, peppercorn blacks and cumin oranges and you can’t go wrong.
We wanted to keep with a calming and light feel, so we turned to our Jute ranges as a perfect flooring partner. Jute has a light and soft texture and works best in places where there are no heavy traffic areas. The three examples below have a slightly different pattern which creates textural interest without overwhelming the overall design theme.

Turn up the temperature with burnt reds and ochre hues with this gorgeous Mexican inspired theme. Choosing a matt finish paint gives the whole look a calming effect and helps prevent it overwhelming the whole look. The use of colour really stands out and partners well with warm dark look woods such as Acacia. Accessories such as clay pots and a simple plant add that natural element, while leathers and grass effect lamp shades can support this theme.
We thought that some of our Satara rugs would look great with this style by adding an extra element of patterns and colours. Rugs are a great way to add instant impact and can be used singularly or grouped to draw attention throughout your room.
