Sprinkles of spring for interiors

Put your best foot forward with Alternative and discover the latest trends for floors. The new Wool Sprinkle is just right for spring. It is naturally tactile with a sprinkling of colour.  The rose pink shade is perfect for this season’s passion for romantic floral prints ranging from delicate cherry blossoms to big showy blooms.

This mood for soft pink started to flower with The Pantone colour of the year, a blend of two shades – gentle Rose Quartz and the light and airy Serenity. Both join easily with other mid-tones including greens and purples and all shades of yellow and pink.

Mix in brights and silver for more splash and sparkle.  Or add this season’s hottest trend accent shade of Chartreuse  – a delicate but vivid green, and your home will be full of energy.

If springtime calls for softer shades then it welcomes softer surfaces too. Why not liberate your senses and indulge in the pleasure of touch? It’s time not just to bring the refreshing outdoor tones inside but it’s time to feel your floor! Go for wall-to wall wool carpet or Make Me A Rug and layer rugs on top of a wood floor for interest and comfort.

Pink shades and plush surfaces are popular this season but the trend for contemporary craft just keeps on growing. Step out in style with Alternative’s new Wool Crafty, a jaunty trio of subtle patterns in nature’s palette. The hounds tooth canine check creeps off the catwalk and onto our floors. The classy diamond is a fashionably cool geometric and the cross is this season’s natural plaid.

We love wool but combine with silky highlights and you have an even more fashionable floor to sink your toes into. Barefoot Ashtanga Silk is a deliciously luxurious carpet full of softness and warmth that is the ultimate in discreet glamour. It marries the beauty of wool with the lustre of silk rayon.

It not only has that handmade feeling but its design-led natural palette can be dressed up with blush pink, pearly grey and smokey brown to create chic looks for both classic and contemporary schemes.
