BIG ON TEX­TURE

Nat­u­ral tex­tures are a great way to bring the calm of the out­doors to your in­door spa­ces. Get started with a tex­tu­ral car­pet and nat­u­ral floor­ing

Your Home and Garden - - Style Stalker -

NA­TURE’S BEST

Tex­ture is a key trend at the mo­ment, es­pe­cially tex­ture in­spired by na­ture. Nat­u­ral tex­tures re­mind us of the out­doors and are im­por­tant to in­te­grate into the home. Start with light wooden floor­ing, then layer a large car­pet piece such as Dry Mar­tini Shaken from Car­pet Court on top. Try this con­cept in your home­ware too – wo­ven wall hang­ings, bam­boo light shades and wo­ven bas­kets all work well.

CHANGE IT UP

Tired of your bor­ing floor? Try the Scan­dia range of luxe vinyl plank floor­ing from Car­pet Court for an on-trend update. Next, add a warm, tex­tu­ral car­pet piece on top. The beauty of a non-fixed car­pet is that if you want a new colour or just need a change, you can eas­ily select and in­stall a new piece from the Car­pet Court range. This ap­proach is great for adapt­ing to the chang­ing sea­sons, too – put your car­pet down dur­ing win­ter and lift it up in the sum­mer to ex­pose your hard­wood floor­ing.

LAYER IT

Make your car­pet a fea­ture in your space. Choose a tone that com­ple­ments your floor­ing and de­cide how much or how lit­tle of the floor you want to leave ex­posed. Fin­ish off by lay­er­ing your soft fur­nish­ings such as nat­u­ral-coloured linens and throws to cre­ate a cosy and invit­ing space.

Keep it sim­ple - If you are go­ing big on

tex­ture in the bed­room, make sure you bal­ance it out with some light

linens.
