Spring Trends


Get ready for spring. It's a beautiful season full of hope and the time to revitalise homes once more. Indoors, be inspired by the great British countryside with zesty greens, daffodil yellows and lively pastel shades that look fresh with crisp off-whites. Cheerful florals and botanical patterns abound, and watch out for birds, bunnies and butterflies! It's that time to bring the outdoors in! 

Whether you are looking to start a bigger interior project or a quick-fix accesory with a colourful rug, we have plenty of ideas to give your home a new-season refresh. 

Here’s the Alternative trend edit...

Bright Blue


Blue is the World's favourite colour and spans a myriad of shades. This season the hottest blue is electric, and brings energy and optimism indoors. think of French artist Yves Klein Blue, Lapis Lazuli and Ultramarine.

It is also a colour to have fun with and this vibrant shade pops with red and white. 

Wall Flowers


Patterned wallpapers put a smile on your face. The good news is, natural carpets go well with pretty much any colour and pattern on the walls. Or turn this trend on its head and make the floor or celing the fifth floor?

After all, why should walls have all the fun? 

Savvy Stripes


Side by side or top to toe, fashion loves a stripe and where fashion goes, interiors are sure to follow. 

This spring stripes go bold with block stripes on the catwalk. Mix Margo Selby's clever trio of stripes for a fresh modern look. 

Patch Work


Quilting is set to be the craft of the year, a way of exploring colour and shapes that resonate with the maker.

Thanks to Alternative, you can have this trend on your floor with Quirky Patch, a British wool stair runner and carpet that makes a colourful, crafty and comfortable entrance.  

Natural Wellbeing


Our connection to nature continues and with it a desire for kinder interiors and sustainability that is here to stay.

Design guru, Michelle Ogundehin, takes it a step further and calls it 'Ambient Wellbeing' which is using natural materials and embedding the health-boosting measures into every space.
