Autumn Glory 


Feel that chill in the air? Autumn is here. Make homes comfort zones. Add warmth with wool and texture. Be cosy with nature’s richer colours. Watch out forwild animal prints, high gloss metallic and a smorgasbord of conker, maple, rust and russet.


Autumn trends your home can wear right now.  


A taste of honey

Dulux Colour of the Year - Spiced Honey


Spiced Honey is Dulux's Colour of the Year for 2019. This warm shade is perfect for autumn with its raw natural tones of amber and rich caramel. It is versatile and timeless, cosy and nourishing.


Alternative Flooring’s Barefoot Taj Rani


Team Spiced Honey with chalky whites for a contemporary feel as shown with our new Barefoot Taj Rani.  Add a little pink to make it fresher.


Boutique hotel 

Alternative Flooring’s Zoffany Boutique - Serpentine Celadon


Alternative’s new Boutique collection created in collaboration with Zoffany, brings five-star luxury carpet to the home. Designs give a nod to the decadent spirit of the 1920s with a sumptuous palette based on jewel-like shades from the Zoffany archive. 


High gloss

Alternative Flooribg’s Faux - Luxx Sheer Narwhal


High-shine fabrics are another fashion trend this autumn along with glossy finishes. Translate this look to floors with our natural sisal metallics in Aluminium, Palladium, Chromium, Titanium, Magnesium and Plutonium. Or go faux with the new Luxx polyester carpets with a more subtle, softer lustre.


Animal print

Alternative Flooring’s Quirky B Zebo


Animal printsare big on the catwalks and expect them to claw their way into interiors. The classic Leopard is now less Bet Lynch and more Out of Africa. A Zebra pattern creates an instant monochrome scheme. Both are statement patterns so best keep the rest of your space tame and pared-down. 


Wild West


Finally, we like to end with a fun tip and this time it’s all things Cowboy and Cowgirl.
