Go bold with the modern abstract trend. Brands are filling the stores with strong, geometric and block colour prints and patterns to bring great design to the home.

Interiors can be clean, white and minimal and you can then introduce this trend in cushions, prints, rugs or bedding to make a statement.

Hunt out great indie designers on sites like Etsy and Trouva, to find unique pieces strong for this trend.

Add a little colourful boho to a room with this gorgeous geometric fringed rug from Urban Outfitters – down in price from £39 to just £23!

Great for beside the bed or in a door way. These small patterned rugs can also look great layered over larger plain rugs.

home: trend [ stripes ]

Stripes are in and out of favour continually and currently we see them with both a natural feel in linens, natural colours and soft tones, but also in bolder starker contrasting tones that make a statement within an interior.

Not a pattern to clash with varying stripes on different homewares but great clashing with florals or bold block colour prints.

home: trend [ Kilim rugs ]

By definition;
A kilim (Azerbaijani: Kilim کیلیم, Turkish: Kilim, Turkmen: Kilim, Persian: گلیم‎ gelīm) is a flat tapestry-woven carpet or rug traditionally produced in countries of the former Persian Empire, Iran, Azerbaijan, the Balkans and the Turkic countries of Central Asia.

And they grace many a floor because their patterns, designs and colours are so adaptable to different interiors.

They are often very affordable compared to other types of rug so it’s in everyone’s reach to have beautiful statement rugs.

Newer styles have a modern take, a lot more geometric patterns, many bolder block colour layouts, more minimal designs; yet still the traditional patterned styles are still exceedingly popular and can be found across the highstreet and online.
