Design aficionados the world over are harking the arrival of the rug trends for 2016 and the “painterly rug” is at the top of that list. Painterly rugs look as if a painting has been created by way of a rug and has a similar effect with mood and movement. The feeling is sophisticated and serene and are either tonal or more neutral with splashes of colour.
Scandinavian design is a huge trend in residential homes and for good reason. The palette is calm and austere with the clever use of soft colours and textures that make even the most formal of Englishman want to flop on the sofa and curl up with a hot cup of cocoa.
