Looking for new textures and hues for your home this spring? Check out how to create a stylish base for your interiors below with our flooring and curtain style guide below. From soft, muted tones to mixing materials and patterns, we round up the best style ideas that are driving the trends this season.

6 flooring style ideas to try

  • Reclaimed, bleached and white or grey wood grains set the tone for your decor, introducing texture, practicality and a Scandinavian simplicity or a breezy, coastal charm.
  • Herringbone flooring brings sophisticated personality into the home in a practical and timeless way.
  • Grey carpet will make a small space feel less cluttered while making a large room feel cosy. Above, Manhattan carpet in Williamsburg.

  • Soft grey is one of the on-trend colours for 2019 interiors and this Dynamic Barrow Oak laminate (above, left) introduces the appeal of aged wood with a layered tonal variation.
  • Love concrete flooring but not on a cold day? Rhino EverCore™ Stone (above, middle) is your walk-easy bathroom solution.
  • Introduce texture and standout good looks with big-weave carpets, like the natural-hued Switzerland Zurich (above, right)

Top flooring trend

Pale wood grain has stepped into the spotlight for flooring as interiors take their cue from our increased awareness of the environment and our need for peace. Warm and soft, this spring trend provides tranquillity when paired with pastels (working just as well to offset darker walls and furnishings too). Because they are subtly patterned, these lighter wood grains sit happily against the new geometrics and other strong patterns that we’re seeing enter interiors this spring. This contrasting pairing will make your home feel modern as we move into a fresh, new season.

Curtain trends for spring

Practicalities aside, there’s good reason to update your drapes and blinds this season: there’s a real treasure trove of fabrics from which to choose. Up-to-the-minute florals (make them blowsy) and art deco-inspired prints are here to invigorate. Think patterns in blush, grey and coral.

Want something with punch? For a splash of sophistication, opt for colour-blocked boldness (warm mustards or purple or a lavish teal). Match or add contrast with cushions and rugs. The neutral palette continues as well with classic beiges, greys and sands in a range of texture to keep the look harmonious.

For a lively injection of colour, opt for spring warmth with sumptuous lengths of curtaining in a dark rose hue.

Curtaining in fresh shades of blush and coral, like this Biella custom fabric, makes a softly, softly addition to colour schemes.

Working with white

Sheer, pale curtains can easily complement the airiness of an all-white room. To avoid a clinical look, match curtains with warm wood flooring and woven pieces to create contrast.

Floral finds

From fashion to interiors, floral bouquets are grabbing the limelight. Make a splash with big blooms in soft pastels and muted shades. Above: Flourish curtaining.
