Another beautiful photo of a formal living room from Traditional Home. A warm, textured, sisal rug covers whitewashed flooring.
But what if the room's furnishings and design requires the rug to be more bold and adventurous or what if the client fails to accept a natural fiber rug into their home deeming it too uncomfortable?
Well, do not despair! There are definitely very fun and fashionable alternatives to natural rugs...bringing in pattern, style, comfort, and color to a floor near you :)
Layering a few different rugs on top of each other is a very interesting and fun way to present pattern and texture to your room. In this parlor, the designer placed a criss cross print rug underneath a zebra rug that is set on the diagonal.
This is such a Domino room- I love it. Its neutral scheme was inspired by a book of Turkish patterns and the owner's infatuation with florals. This rug provides an earthy element to the room.
I have always had a thing for this study designed by Celerie Kemble. The graphic carpet is very David Hicks-esque!
We've featured this Dallas home on our blog before- the owners definitely don't have to worry about this room being too blah- a large zebra printed rug gives this room all the pattern it needs! Large or small, a zebra printed rug is always a great way to throw a little pattern on the floor.
Horizontal stripes on this rug creates a linear pattern throughout the room- which mixes nicely with the rounded ottoman and circular print pillows.
And...even more stripes! These floor stripes echo the ceiling's linear beams on a smaller scale
Solid and muted hued furniture let the flooring take center stage for once!
