Fresh looks for spring

I've only been to North Yorkshire a handful of times, mostly to the Turkish Baths in Harrogate which I can highly recommend for its ice cold plunge pool and original Victorian tiles, which are stunning and totally on trend!

Our Spring shoot took us just near here, to a beautiful house set in 40 acres of land with plenty of space to create room sets inside and have some fun shooting rugs and fabrics outside too.

Carpets of snowdrops and celandine provided a perfect backdrop for our spring look, making our pink armchair looks oh so pretty amongst the spring flowers.

The Tithe Barn was transformed from wedding venue to Boho living space, with lots of distressed leather furniture, jewel-coloured velvet upholstery and kilim rugs in a riot of rich, earthy colours. Accents of dark wood tied the whole scheme together.

Rugs, fabrics and wallpapers play a really important part, pulling a scheme together and making it sing. Furniture may well be the lead vocal, but its nothing without its backing singers - take a look at these gorgeous samples and tell me they're not worthy of a Brit or two!

Visit the store or go online to find out more about the thousands of carpets, rugs, wallpapers and fabrics we have in stock, with friendly expert staff who can advise, measure, make and fit.
