Interior Design Trends 2020
So a couple of weeks back we introduced you to the biggest interior trends of 2020, now we’re here to show you how to achieve these trends with our show-stopping floor collections.
This week we have - The return of the beige
Over the last decade we've seen a huge rise in the popularity of grey interiors, turning up the blue tones and dialling down the warmer neutrals. Grey became the standard colour of choice in our homes, beige was the forgotten trend, a thing of the past.
However, many of us have come to the realisation that too much grey can be a little hard to live with, its cool and dull tones can create an unwelcoming atmosphere and can be well, downright depressing. People are now u-turning back to the warmer colours and softer neutrals of the 1990's. Beige is making its comeback and it’s stronger than ever. Shaking off its ‘boring’ and ‘dated’ reputation, it's on a mission to prove that beige is anything but bland.
Now this is not to be confused with brown, when we say beige think buttermilk, oatmeal, vanilla, biscuit, eggshell, camel. It covers the spectrum of creamy-warm off-whites to sandy-earthy tones. These warmer based neutral tones will help to create a calm, welcoming and uplifting space.
Create a minimalist beige interior
Sometimes you just can’t beat the basics and keeping your flooring simple and uncomplicated is one way to achieve this trend. However, if you go simple with your flooring you need to go all out with your soft furnishings and wall coverings.
Starting off with a nice, simple budget friendly carpet tile, Nouveau Urban - Sand is perfect for those with smaller budgets at just a teeny tiny £1.89 a pop.

If you’re on the hunt for something a little softer on the toes, Nouveau Home Comforts could be the one for you.

Boho’s influence is one of the main reasons that we are seeing more beige and brown tones in interiors.
