From Lonnymag. A small rug can help define an area. In this case, it really draws attention to the funky chunky coffee table. It looks like you can just sit down on that pillow and play a board game. Life, anyone?
From Clover mag. This one, by Rob Southern, helped to separate the desk area from the rest of the room. It's like a little desk island.
I love idea of a layered rug; a smaller one on top of a wall to wall sisal like this one by Phoebe Howard.
Or many different rugs dividing up different seating areas in this large living room by Weissman Fisher via Point Click Home.
How sweet is this lavender room? This is how faded I envision the carpet for my clients. By Phoebe Howard
Here is a bold one with golds, blues, and reds that really unites the room. And this room is so beautiful! By Michael Smith.
James Michael Howard. Okay, so this one is a geometric but it's soft tones are wonderful.
A bold pattern in a faded tonemakes a beautiful statement but doens't take all the attention away from the other amazing parts to this room. Charlotte Moss via Cote de Texas.
I think this one is my favorite. The soft blue/green and cream tones throughout are so lovely. My client's bedroom has many pink tones everywhere so I think a faded pink toned carpet would be beautiful there. Elizabeth Dinkel.
You don't see many oriental or turkish rugs on the blogs. Many are geometic and striped, which are great and I have 2 striped rugs in my apartment, but often times you need a carpet that will bring together a room, not stretch it out. I hope I find the perfect rug for my clients, but I may just go with a simple plain one. A subtle faded carpet would certainly be perfect though. I can't wait to show you how everything comes together--more on their wallpaper soon!
