Stripes and Pastels for 2014

Upcoming trends for Spring 2014 have been highly debated over the past few months. Interior designers and bloggers have declared that striped patterns and pastel coloured hues are the trends to watch.


Pastel shades are great for brightening up dull spaces and can be used in any sized room as a main or accent. Pastels in particular are ideal for bedrooms, due to their timeless nature and adaptable colour pallets. The Imperial Velvet range in ‘sundance’ and ‘lichen’ is a perfect choice for new parents wanting a gender neutral bedroom which can be used for many years. Velvet carpets are an ideal choice because they exude quality and can immediately add extra softness and comfort to a room. Other notable pastel ranges include our Options 288 and Duchess Elite, both featuring styles which would create chic yet subtle interior. Due to its understated colour, pastels are perfect teamed with brighter accent colours which are great if you want to create statement interiors if you have bolder taste.


Striped carpets are for hallways, bedrooms and living rooms, as they are versatile, stylish and durable. The Carpet Showroom recommends the Holst range for its array of colours, which cheer up a drab space instantaneously. In particular, this carpet works effectively in a living room, when matched with soft cream furnishings and accents of blue. This range is so versatile, it can be used in bedrooms, hallways and dining rooms. As it 100% wool it would truly stand the test of time. For further style tips for stripes decoration click here.
