Hot Trends

What are the latest trends with home carpeting? Are there any popular textures or colors that stand out for 2011?

TN: Color is a big thing in 2011. People are being more adventurous with color in their carpet and using it as a focus in the room. A lot of plums, teals, and other jewel-toned colors have become popular. I suggest keeping most of the room muted with whites and grays if you decide to go with a bright carpet. This will help keep it sophisticated, but still add a pop of fun.
