    Plain and Simple
    This modern take on the natural look lets you create a warm and calming environment throughout the home with a palette of soft putty hues.

    ‘Moving away from the popular white-on-white trend, these grown up shades of biscuit and clay create an illusion of space, so if you are working in a restricted area this is the one for you', says Fun on the Floor's interiors expert Andrea Maflin. ‘Look for neutral or fine striped carpet and accessorise this look with ice blue and gun metal grey'.

    Eastern Odyssey
    Inject a bold shock of colour into the home with bright sari shades and rich spice tones inspired by Eastern style and culture. The Eastern Odyssey palette incorporates ornate and patterned furniture, with the use of a block coloured carpets and fabric to add calm to a room that could otherwise feel chaotic.

    ‘Have fun with your rooms and don't be afraid to use bold carpet in these hot spicy colours', says Fun on the Floor's trend expert Victoria Redshaw. 'Striking orange and pink jewel shades are the key to pull this diverse look together and carpet provides a foundation for this fabulous eastern look'.

    Magic Garden
    Bring the outdoors in with grassy greens and buttercup yellow shades that make up the beautiful Magic Garden trend. With shades of candy cane pink, sunshine yellow and summer sky you can create a fresh springtime look that will last all year long.

    Fun on the Floor's interiors Expert Andrea Maflin advises: ‘Warm shades of lilac, yellow and pink, used with a fresh spring green are ideal for this pretty vibrant look. A vivid carpet will provide the perfect foundation and add warmth to a room. Just two or three shades from this palette are all you need to create this magical look. Accessorise with vintage prints and fresh flowers'.
