“Another rug” sighed Dave as this one arrived in the post! I do think I may have an actual rug addiction – but in my defence – they are cosy, it’s still winter and this one is particularly on trend and utterly gorgeous.
I have been lusting after a Moroccan-inspired Berber-style rug for some time now. I like to research a trend, or a style, quite a lot before jumping onto it myself. So I realise that I’m a bit late to the party with this one, but hey ho. Here it is. In my home!
I have just bought this gorgeous new one (which is amazingly soft underfoot) from Next. I got the 120cm x 170cm which fits the large space well and cost £90.

It goes perfectly with the ‘greenery’ pieces that I have started to add in. Greenery was identified by Pantone as the colour of 2017. They said:
“It is a refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings. Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate”.
Because Pantone said so, it is therefore incredibly on trend right now. Think green walls, palm tree wallpaper, over-sized plants and cacti and you’ll be there. It’s gorgeous and goes nicely in a modern home like our new-build home, or looks equally as stylish in a period-style home.
Even though I adore all these pieces in our hallway, it is in fact about to get a BIG make-over in a few weeks time, in association with Dulux for a project I am working on with them. It is getting painted and I will be adding in even more new accessories! I am currently deciding which colour to go for. The space is very open, large and light – and so I could go for anything really! Exciting times!
Have you embraced the greenery – or got yourself a Berber style rug yet?
