5 Rooms Where the Rug Stole the Show
Rugs are the simplest way to turn a room from bland to grand. The humble home item is a coveted design trick for many interior designers because it makes a simple space come alive, and it pulls eclectic pieces together that would otherwise clash. From the dining room to the hallway, bathroom or the entryway, the rug definitely makes the room. Scroll down for a few of our favourite spaces where the rug steals the show.
When you really want a room to speak volumes without saying a word, position a bold black-and-white rug at the entry. This room would otherwise be fairly simple, with only the mint-green door to add interest. But the rug really brings the "wow" factor into frame.
Whoever said one rug was enough clearly haven't seen this über-stylish space. We love the mix of textures. The warmth of the fur hide is counterbalanced perfectly with the rustic natural fiber of the basketweave rug underneath it. This soft and tough mix is definitely a favorite with the MyDomaine team.
Worried about your all-white space being a little too bland? Well, crank up the style dial with a bright-red rug. What a powerful and uplifting welcome home you'll receive with this at your entry. We love the subtle mix of colors; they sit close enough to each other on the spectrum that they're not overwhelming. Bold and tasteful.
We are huge fans of the midcentury modernism aesthetic, but sometimes it can appear very masculine with structural furniture and dark décor. When this happens, add that feminine touch with a colorful rug in a soft texture. It will pull all the pieces together and ground the room, so it doesn't feel so heavy.
This room is absolutely divine. The warm wood tones and neutral color palette are simply a joy to be in. But it can feel a little monotone until you throw a fabulous and fun geometric rug. We love the chic clash of interesting patterns and color, which bring a unique interest to the room. What a great conversation starter!
