Let pattern kick-start your room scheme by choosing a retro-inspired carpet or a graphic wallpaper. Go for a Seventies vibe with Carpetright’s Condo design. Team with soft accessories in geometric prints, then wake up the neutral look with hints of dusky rose and flashes of gold. Create a contemporary feel with the striking Modul print from Scion- use the palette of taupe, peach and charcoal to inspire the rest of your scheme.
