The days are getting crisper and the nights are drawing in.  Whether you love autumn or long for the return of hot sunny days, here are 8 top trends for this season:

1. Mono, greys and stainless steel

This look never really dies, it just moves with the times.  Sleek, modern and minimalist looks for the uber trendy: CF 1101_Moduleo_Black Slate 970 Autumn (002)

2. Natural shades and textures

Stylish creams, beiges and browns coupled with the natural feel of wood or bamboo.  Give your home this classic look with a natural carpet, add some plants and rattan furniture and get back to the elements:

3. Colourful stripes

The bolder the stripe the better seems to be the message of this season. Striped stair carpet has been big for a while, but if you’re really brave, bring some technicolour striped vinyl flooring into your life:

4. Vintage tiles and retro styles

Harking back to yesteryear is nothing new but this season is all about vintage tiles.  The great thing about nowadays is that we can get the look of old fashioned ceramic tiles without the worry of installation or breakages:

Cosy up in autumn with a touch of luxury in your home.  Think rich colours, soft cushions and a deep pile carpet to sink your feet into. Go on, you deserve it:

A gorgeously opulent look, the marble effect can work anywhere in your home.  It was once rejected by many as too cold a choice, especially for floors, but with advances in vinyl and laminate flooring, times have changed:
