The Pantone list of 2017s hottest colours is the perfect place to begin for on-trend colour inspiration. This year’s predictions are playful and vivid, igniting the imagination and inspiring a new wave of bold interior choices. These predictions definitely seem to be ringing true in trending colours for a wide range of products, and especially for floor rugs.

The latest releases from Designer Rugs are on the mark with their bright hues, and an ideal way to keep your living, dining or bedroom in vogue. With over 30 years of design history, plus the option to customise size, shape and colour to create the perfect fit, you’ll be sure to find the rug of your dreams in exactly the shade you need!

Here are four rug colours that will give your home an on-trend refresh:

1. Pink Yarrow

Pink Yarrow is definitely the boldest choice of the season, and is sure to lift your spirits and elevate your space. ‘Evelyn’ by Petrina Turner provides a nod to retro crocheted rugs of 70s decor, but with a luxury twist – beautiful New Zealand wool and bamboo is hand carved to provide incredible texture in this contemporary hue.

2. Lapis blue

Energetic, radiant and yet calming, Lapis blue is a rich and majestic option to centre your room around. ‘Powder Room’ by Romance Was Born uses this shade as a base, with pops of whimsical pinks and greens forming the overlayed design. With so many colours to pull out and use as inspiration, this quirky rug is a perfect departure point for an interiors update.

3. Primrose yellow

Bring the sunshine into your home with Primrose Yellow! This joyful, vibrant colour has been paired with subdued greys in ‘Reflector’ by Gavin Harris, creating the effect of the sun streaming through the clouds. This simple, geometric design has subtle diagonal detail, perfect for drawing the eye to certain areas of your room.

4. Flame

An ideal colour for adding warmth to a cool contemporary space, Flame creates a perfect centrepiece for a room, and pairs back well with many complimentary colours and wood tones. Luxury handknot style ‘Malabar’ has a lavish, touchable texture, and contains shimmering silk highlights in copper and orange tones.

Which of these exciting colour trends is your top pick this season? While these trend predictions are bold, they are extremely versatile in their application and can be toned down or amped up to suit your tastes. No matter your choice, a new floor rug is one of the easiest ways to update your space.
