Our curated selection of handmade designer rugs is seemingly made for Dulux Colour Forecast 2022.

Every year Dulux forecasts the colours trends that will play out in our homes over the coming year, and after the year that’s been, there’s a deep sense of reconnection and positivity to be found within the inspired palettes. With the amount of time many of us have spent at home, there is this innate desire to be expressive and adventurous while finding a sense of calm and comfort within our homes.

The Dulux Colour Forecast 2022 features three palettes – restore, flourish and wonder – each carefully researched and curated to reflect our state of being as we emerge from a pandemic year. From natural, earthy tones to bold summery hues, the colour forecast delivers in a big way, and we have a beautiful selection of handmade rugs that reflect the three palettes for you to discover.

Give your home an instant injection of colour, pattern, and texture with our range of rugs that reflect the current forecast, because after all, a rug is a great opportunity to freshen up your living space and give it a completely new look and feel.


A colour palette that soothes our senses and provides a reassuring backdrop, the Restore palette is a calming mix of buttercream, pumice, clay, rich forest green, moss and charcoal purple. An earthy undertone that keeps us grounded in all the changes that have been happening around us.

We’ve been so deprived of the natural world that the focus of earth-based colours and tactile experiences plays out in this palette. Sitting beautifully within the Restore palette is our rustique pebbles, the earthy tone, while the white pebble rug provides that authentic tactile experience we’ve all been craving with the natural world.


Where Restore grounds us, Flourish takes us on a world of adventure. It awakens a desire to experience everything that life offers and encourages us to be unapologetically ourselves. The mix of sensual hues such as petrol blue, desert red and dusty rose alongside warm neutrals, and a pop of vintage gold instill both warmth and passion. This sophisticated and worldly palette speaks to our Viscose rugs that come in deep rich colours of maroon and navy. Decadent in look and touch, you can combine these moody hues with warm neutrals for an elegantly stylish look.



As we reconnect with family and friends, there is a real sense of awakening and celebration, and the Wonder palette encompasses this in its entirety. The palette’s playful mix of cornflower blue, lilac, lemon, green quartz, and rose gold evoke joy and optimism of better days ahead. This palette's summery hues and whimsical nature lends itself to our jute rugs, which sits subtly against the surprising display of colours. With the palette comes a sense of nostalgia, memories of carefree days, yet it gently moves us towards a brighter future where we're free to play and imagine.
