If you are searching for the perfect rug this is definitely worth the read. Did I mention that I LOV
As a designer, often a great starting point of decorating a room is the floor. This is because it can be a really good way of establishing your color palette and giving direction to your project. In thinking about how floors are embellished, we need to consider a few factors.
Rugs pull rooms together as they establish a relationship by incorporating the furniture in a particular space. They can draw pieces together resulting in a more conversational pattern. They also define a space by drawing a visible line around all the pieces, both uniting them and/or dividing them from the rest of the room/s. They also show off your style and make a bold statement that sometimes you’d rather your furniture not make. Rugs come in a variety of shapes, sizes, materials, price ranges, styles, and weaves, and while it can be overwhelming when searching for the perfect one, it can also be fun to search for your anchor, because anchor your room it will!
Experts express that a sense of “warmth” is evoked with the addition of a rug, along with the wonderful feel of walking on a softer, more luxurious surface.
From my perspective, selecting and buying a rug, besides the practical aspect, is a lot like buying a piece of art in that it should be a special piece and carefully selected. It should "talk to you", make you feel happy when looking at it, and have a big impact on a space. This does not mean it needs to cost a fortune, it's not about that, it just means that it needs to be very special to you for your own reasons.
Of course there is a time and a place for decorative, colorful rugs such as some of the rugs pictured below, and there is a time too for more subdued subtle rugs, such as when the surroundings dictate that due to a lot of other colorful or decorative things already happening in the space, the rug needs to be more low key. It's a matter of feeling out the space, making your decision based on all these factors, and then you need to love living with it!
