Update your home with the latest tempting palette straight from the catwalk – with a host of tantalising berry shades it’s just the thing for adding a cosy touch ready for autumn!

It’s not surprising that the rich shades of the berry family from raspberry and blackberry to blueberry and mulberry are a perennial favourite when it comes to adding a cosy and welcoming touch in our homes.


With their warm and inviting shades, fruity berry tones are a perfect way of adding a bold splash of colour to our rooms and can be extremely versatile creating a whole variety of luscious decorating schemes.

If you want to be brave, instead of safe neutrals, take the plunge and use berry colours on the floor.  Carpets are available in a wide range of shades and textures so go bold with colour but choose a fibre that is practical for your lifestyle – a luxurious velvet pile is best suited to bedrooms or living rooms with low traffic, whilst a durable twist pile is perfect for a busy family room or hallway.


Tough fibres such as Polypropylene are designed to look like wool but are really hardwearing and come in extremely vivid shades if you are after an intense pop of colour.

Vinyl flooring is a great choice for kitchens and bathrooms with their durable, practical surfaces. Try contrasting a bold Blueberry coloured vinyl against a white gloss kitchen for sleek contemporary cool or making the most of a space in a tiny bathroom by maximising the space with a sleek sheet vinyl in a bright shade of berry red.

Colour wise, the brighter end of the berry spectrum such as raspberry, as well as being a wonderful choice for flooring is also a great accent colour for accessories working with a variety of shades in the colour wheel from greys and blues to greens and browns.

At the other end of the palette deep blueberry and mulberry make a theatrical and dramatic statement and work fantastically well when teamed with deep and sophisticated tones on walls with rich matt shades of coordinating colour.

Inject colour accents around your room with gorgeous blasts of intense berry shades.
When it comes to adding those all-important finishing touches take your time to shop wisely. The accessories are the elements that really pull the look together and make a difference to the scheme adding an extra dimension of colour and texture as well as injecting your personality into the room. This season take your pick from the selection of gorgeous berry buys in fabulous fruity shades.
