With such an array of patterns available you might not be sure where to start. So here’s an overview of some of the many pattern styles that are available, as well as some inspiration, to help get you started…

Delicate details

Perhaps you want to include a touch of pattern into your scheme without committing too much to a full wall or floor? Try adding in more of a delicate or subtle pattern, this will add interest without too much of a statement look.

This helps to create a contemporary look with a bit more charm and detail. Our Nano collection is perfect for this and offers four ditsy style prints with an urban edge.
