Of course not, well maybe some days, well ok yes I can think of several times something happened I wasn’t expecting. Our day to day lives are full of twists and turns where we have to make quick decisions we can feel confident with and move on. Yep, most days move along very nicely. Until it’s time to decide on purchasing an area rug.
9 ROOMS WHERE THE RIGHT AREA RUG CAN ADD AN IMPACT
Area rugs really have to deliver in so many ways. Not only do they need to be utilitarian, we also want them to be an asset in our homes decor. There are the questions of what size to buy and do we need a pad. Pretty easy to get this info online. Then onto the real life questions of what’s the best choice for pet hair, kid eruptions, happy hour mishaps and maybe even a little pet potty. If we have to allow for any one of these factors what price should we pay “just in case” a disaster happens? Or if we get tired of a piece? All factors for how we really live. Yes we are designers, but we get you on this one!
First, got an empty room? Why not start with an area rug as the basis of your decor? The choices are endless and this is an excellent opportunity to reflect your personality. Perhaps you have an heirloom that has been rolled up because it didn’t feel right with previous furnishings. Love it…get it out and build from it. Ready to purchase an investment piece and start your own legacy heirlooms? Look for a future post where we will feature the source we use most for this caliber of pieces. For now, though, let’s look at suggestions available at Wayfair.com. There truly is a rug for every Perfect LBD…dog poo and all! (If this happens to you, mums the word but we have to deal with it!)
Today on Friday Favorites, we are going to look at some beautiful rooms where the designer, or homeowner, has decided not to use a rug. Because so many of our Digital Design clients ask us to make suggestions for rugs after furnishings are in place, we thought we have some fun and show you what we’d recommend for these rooms. Ready for some….
There are so many ways to use area rugs. Small ones layered over larger ones, large ones in lieu of wall to wall carpet, light colors to brighten dark floors, dark colors to define light floors, bold patterns to make a statement and subtle patterns to work with quiet designs. Rugs are used to define spaces and can be the “Art” in the room on the floor or on the wall.
Choosing the right rugs for your home should be fun! Need someone to run some ideas by…you know who to call.
Thanks for spending a few minutes of your day with us!
