How to Decorate Your Home With Rugs

I'm a firm believer that whether you live in a dorm room, penthouse apartment or country cottage, it's the extra little details that make your house into a home. One really simple way to put your personal stamp of style onto your decor is by using rugs. Here are a few tips on how to decorate with rugs to get you feeling inspired.

Rugs can accent your decor scheme

When choosing rugs for your home, think about how you can use them to accent your existing decor. Consider picking out a pattern or similar hue to ones you have already used in your room design.

Combine a rug with accent furniture

Combining a rug with accent furniture is a quick way to create an interesting feature and is a great way to add detail to your decor. Some good ideas include standing a low table and small chair on a rug at the end of your bed for a charming look, or creating elegance in a large hallway by placing a pedestal table on a round rug.

Use rugs to define a space

If you have open-plan living spaces, for example a kitchen/dining room/lounge, different areas can tend to meld together. Use a large rug as a base to group furniture around – such as your coffee table and armchairs – to create defined spaces for distinct uses.

Add a rug for a cozy feel

Rugs are a great way to make your home feel cozier and are an especially nice addition to wood or tile floors. Rich textures and softly textured weaves have an instantly warming effect. A versatile option is the Bryce Pewter/Gold faux cowhide rug by Loloi Rugs. Its acrylic weave has a luxurious metallic gleam and feels sensational underfoot.
