Whether you’re style is pretty in pink or minty fresh, pastels are officially IN. Offering a gentle alternative to some of the brighter shades, pastel colours can add a pop of colour without taking over your space and style. Of course we had to get in on the trend with three new perfectly pastel and exclusive additions to the Dunelm rug family…
Introducing Accra, Durban and Kampala – our trio of new arrivals. With three designs in up to five pastel tones it’s almost impossible to choose a favourite, but we’ll give you a hand. Ranging from the most subtle to striking we have three styles: Accra, a timeless Berber design; Durban, a kaleidoscope of shape and colour; and finally, Kampala, which gives huge geometrics a home.
The subtle sibling of the range, it uses a timeless design with a gentle palette to create a classic, calm focal point on your floor. The Accra follows the ever-popular design style of traditional Beni Ourain rugs with thin lines drawing a simple geometric design over the pile. This design has become increasingly popular in homes recently but it actually dates back hundreds and hundreds of years, when craftsmen would make rugs using only sheep wool with no dyes. This makes our natural toned Accra rug the most faithful of the styles.
Tessellating triangles reach every corner of this contemporary design, using different shades to create an eye-catching pattern that can’t help but be centre of attention in any space. The Durban comes in four on-trend colours: subtle pink, mint, bold blue, and ochre. Balanced out by white and grey shapes, these rugs are paired perfectly with matching home accessories. We love combining the pink Durban design with our Gisela footstool to add some extra ‘feet-up’ comfort.
Go for bold with the Kampala design, where we’ve scaled up our geometrics and added pops of bold accent colours to create something cool and contemporary. You can go big and blue or add some softness with pastel pink and mint shades. Use geometrics throughout your space to tie your room together, combining large-scale geometrics like Kampala with smaller geometrics like our chevron throw, and try it in ochre to add some contrasting colour.
Stylish… and they’re all made to last
We know that modern life can be hectic so this design is built to last. The 100% polypropylene pile of each design is easy to clean with minimal shedding, so it will stand the test of time in the rough and tumble of home life. The 3cm pile is super soft, making it the perfect option for living rooms and bedrooms that need some added comfort underfoot.
