Roll out the red (or pink) carpet this Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is here again, and what better reason to show your home some love. Red and pink are fabulous at any time of year – after the gloom of winter why not inject a little passion into your décor this February?
For as little as a few hundred pounds you could transform any room with a new carpet, helping you achieve a stunning new look while remaining within your budget. Fun on the Floor design expert Andrea Maflin says: “Red is a fantastically vibrant colour but many people are afraid to use it. It can really give a new lease of life to a bedroom or living room. A safer option is to try it in the hall. It’s a very welcoming shade and a great way to make a statement to guests. Go for neutral walls and a few well-chosen, bold accessories to pull this look off confidently.”
Pink is a classically romantic colour which can work in any room of the home. Andrea Maflin says: “If you love the whitewashed look but want to avoid minimalism, then pink is the colour for you. It will really add depth to the space and can be used as a common shade through accessories, walls and floors. A soft pink carpet will bring warmth to the room and fit perfectly with the floral and French vintage trends which are so popular right now.”
