This Palm Springs inspired room proves coloured carpet is a winner

Step aside neutrals, this year statement shades are making their mark as the go-to choice for carpets. Here’s how to choose the right hue for your home

Mid-century modern design has stood the test of time in the Southern Californian hotspot of Palm Springs – and this nostalgic nod to its effortless style will hold true in your home, too

If you’re apprehensive about introducing coloured carpet into your home, start with a smaller space such as a walk-in wardrobe or guest bedroom – you’ll soon be hooked. Carpet Court has a comprehensive range of shades that can complement any space or colour scheme, as well as hard flooring options for a cohesive finish. Custom carpet rugs can also be made to fit any space in your home and can easily be swapped out when you change your decor.

Secret style tip

Match a deep wall tone to a softer carpet hue from the same colour family for statement style in your living area.
