A friend in the interiors business told me the other day that carpets are making a comeback. It seems that we are over the minimalist phase and that comfort and luxury are top of her clients’ wish lists. Wallpaper has replaced paint in many stylish homes over the past three years, adding some much needed softness to offset the leather and glass we have all embraced in our houses.
I must say that while I love the prettiness of some wallpaper prints and my polished glass and my soft leather furniture, I won’t be chasing the carpet trend anytime soon. For me with small children, I think you just can’t beat the beautifully warm look of a wooden floor and the handiness of just spraying and wiping clean.
What are your thoughts?
