Day 124 of 365 Days of a Happy Home!
A rug may be considered an accessory, but it can be the foundation of a gorgeous space. When designing a room, the first conversation I often have clients is about rugs. I think of a rug as a canvas that you layer and build the rest of the room around, and which one you choose can depend on context. For instance, flat-weave rugs often work well in relaxed settings such as mountain or beach houses. Using a high-pile rug immediately adds a luxurious touch. It is also important to keep lifestyle in mind. Children and pets? Color and fabric choice become important decorating decisions. The right rug introduces elements of color, pattern, and scale, but it also makes you feel good in the room. What’s underfoot is essential!
