First, here is the lounge with the new wall colour.
Tile feature in the fireplace.
Sofas and cushions.
Chair. Can you see where I’m going with this?
All that’s left is carpet. The lighter beige carpet above is a strong contender. It’s a Cormar carpet, 80/20 wool in a colour called Nutkin.
This is the other contender. It’s called Cardinal.
Let’s ignore the cat fur question – I have a new attachment for my vacuum cleaner which should deal with that. We all know what a beige carpet will look like – but what about red?
Here’s a sample of a tasteful, elegant room with red carpet.
And a gorgeous Edwardian interior with red carpet.
Unfortunately red carpet can go wrong too. This looks likes Liberace’s Vegas home.
And a scene from an 80s episode of the The Bold and the Beautiful.
I’d be interested in your views – beige carpet with the red accents I already have, or the cardinal red carpet? Vote in this poll!
