It’s time to stop thinking of figs as the forbidden fruit of the interiors' world.

There are few things more decadent than this deep purple hue, both luxurious and stately in its tone, with an undeniable sense of occasion. This could be the autumnal game changer you didn’t even know you needed.

Go bold and use fig-toned carpet or paint to create a rich colour canvas to build on to transform your room – then layer your furniture and decorative accessories in delicate pinks, soft shades of grey or vibrant red tones to complement your fig base and to add a sense of decadence. Texture is also an important element of this trend where velvets, cottons and linens marry beautifully to ignite your senses.

Including fig tones in your décor schemes can be a perfect way to breathe new life into existing colour favourites, such as terracotta, millennial pink, mustard with gold tones, allowing you to easily transition your interiors into the autumn season.

Whether your palette is light and bright or deep and sultry, Carpet Court’s striking Chelsea range of roller, glide or roman blinds in colour ‘Raisin’ would be a perfect way to introduce the fig theme.

If you’re looking for home accessories to add touches of fig into your home, check out the Dolly Rug in Plum from Carpet Court and the Jolie Mauve vase from Myer.
