Gone are sterile spaces and in, is the new mood for depth and distinction. In short it’s all about layers, layers and more layers! According to The Cormar Carpet Company layering personalises a look and takes it from utilitarian to special.
“It’s as simple as adding colour, texture, patterns via flooring, throws, curtains, and accessories,” said David Cormack, marketing director at Cormar. “Each layer brings colour and texture to the room but be careful you don’t overdo it – too much layering can look messy so the key is balance.”
Start from the floor and build up, adding personality to the room by playing around with contrasting textures for warmth and interest. A lustrous super soft carpet adds depth to the space and works well with a showcase wall and a knitted pouffe or flat weave chair for a cohesive look.
Cormar’s Sensation Heathers in silvery Riga Surf shade fuses style with durability. It is made from 100% Luxelle, an easy clean polypropylene fibre and comes in a bank of contemporary neutrals.
“Low-key multi-dimensional interiors are causing a stir among homeowners because they’re inviting and welcoming,” said David. “The Swedish term ‘Lagom’ – pronounced ‘lar-gom’ – epitomises this trend for decorating. It’s about removing clutter and creating a space you can relax and unwind in.”
Remember it doesn’t have to be complicated. Put a stamp on your bedroom space by swapping a tired, old carpet with one in a tempting texture that oozes comfort.
Cormar’s Avebury and Malabar 100% wool collections offer four looped designs to experiment with in a base palette of neutral colours including Maddington Mist (Avebury) and Tungsten (Malabar). Team with sumptuous overblankets and ambient lighting to give a cosy ambience. Simple accessories that enhance rather than distract include stacked cushions, appealing artwork, tactile throws and an occasional chair, footstool or small table.
Said David: “Accessories are the perfect layering technique. Use colour and be bold as they’re more interchangeable and affordable when you want a different look. Don’t be afraid to mix things up and experiment with different styles.”
