Rug Decorating Tips

Hey rug lovers!

Since we are starting a New Year, I was thinking about cleaning out the old vibes and bringing in a new look into your homes, cottages, condos, apartments, wherever you live and love.

 

Basically I’d like to introduce everyone to mid-size rugs, and smaller rugs but placed in a unique way in your home.

 

I will show you how to freshen up your homes quickly while maintaining your budget. Say hello to the buzzing trend, Layering!

 

Layering rugs brings a room to life. It's fun adding layers by playing around with neutral colored rugs or pattern rugs in different colors and sizes. It's really all about the imagination, so think outside the box, layered rugs don’t need to be the same shape or lay perfectly on top of each other. You can even try placing one diagonally and create a whole new look.

 

All these rugs are handmade, and can become a beautiful centerpiece in your homes, or sometimes just an accent. But all serve the purpose of cutting down noise and keeping our feet cozy.

 

 

Firstly, maybe layer a Vintage rug on top of a Kilim or Sisal rug can be the perfect addition to any bedroom. This way you can achieve that Shabby-Chic look without too much effort, let your blankets hang over the edges of furniture and throw your gorgeous clothing everywhere.

Secondly, instead of one massive rug in your living space try two medium size rugs to separate the room: working area & lounging area. The key is to choose similar rugs but different lifestyles.

And finally, also my favorite, makes your hallways and/or vestibules pop with a short runner and another longer Persian Runner. These Pieces of Art can make any Hallway Elegant, or brighten any Vestibule. It brings color and richness to anyone’s home.

Want to add a comforting touch to your cozy bedroom or your modern living room? I know what you’re looking for: a Fabulous Shag rug!

These shags are multi functional! You can use them in your bedroom as a romantic art piece, or in your living room as a decorative accent to accentuate your sofa or coffee table. Shag rugs are so comfortable that your kids would love to sit and play on them all day long. You can easily add fun to your kids’ room with these great rugs! It’s time to get shagalicious and give your home a retro look!

 

Shag rugs range in different sizes, shapes, colors, patterns, and prices to complement different home decor aesthetics. Some of my all time favorite shag collections are:

 
Alpaca, Capturing all that is modern; this Moroccan themed shag will add both style and comfort to any room. Designed to be soft underfoot, this rug has a dense, multi yarn pile, perfect for today’s lifestyle. .

Thinking what sets these shag rugs apart from the rest? There are many reasons, but here are just a few topping my list:
 

- Having a soft and plush feel, shag rugs give a warm and inviting ambiance to your home.

- Very durable, insulating and naturally stain resistant, making them excellent for high traffic areas and kid’s rooms.

- Having such an element of style: zing it up to serve as a focal point in a contemporary home decor setting.

- So versatile; shag rugs may be used to add texture and comfort to wood, tile or any other floor type!

- Easy to clean and maintain! 3 simple steps, rake your rug, use a rug pad and vacuum lightly.

 

It’s interesting to note, shags rugs can create such a great vibe. These rugs can easily liven up the ambiance and create a great mood! If you have a small room, choose a shag color similar to the walls and furniture, to make it look more spacious and big. Do the exact reverse, if you’d like to make the room appear smaller and cozier! It’s always a good idea to select a colorful, bold rug with neutral furnishings to balance out.

Rug Decorating Tips

Hey rug lovers!

You layer your clothes, why not your Rugs?

 

The layered rug look is definitely a hot design trend! Mix them, match them, and create your own look.

 

When layering rugs, it is very important to find textures and colors that work in harmony. This will add a unique style to any room.

 

Here are 5 tips to achieving the perfect layered look for your room.

 

 

1) Find a color scheme: Neutral rugs work well as a base because they are easy to mix without overwhelming the room. For example, organic rugs such as sisal, jute or sea grass are excellent choices for a base layer. The objective is to make sure the layered rugs flow on your floor and don’t compete with your furniture. For the layering, I would recommend either a pop of color that balances the room or a neutral tone not to overwhelm the room.
 

 

Rug Decorating Tips

 

Coming Soon: Sisal rug

 

2) Mix Textures: Mixing textures is the key to layered rugs. Hides, for example, are great for layering because they are thin and funky. Layering two types of rugs will add unexpected texture and depth to any room.

 

 

3) Don’t forget proportions: Placing a rug that is too small on top of a very large rug will cause the smaller rug to look out of place. Keep the layering within a ratio of 1 to 1 1/2. The smaller rugs will draw more attention to the room. This is a perfect way to create a focal point that feels complete and cozy.

 

 

4) Play with patterns: Don’t be afraid to mix patterns, just make sure that they are within the same palette of colors. The pattern on pattern concept in a room is genius and works well together because they don’t perfectly match, which makes the room feel strategically undone.

 

5) Play with shapes: Your base rug will most likely be a rectangle, but the top rug doesn’t have to be the same shape. Don't be afraid to play with shapes! Experiment by layering a round rug over a rectangular rug at the center of your living room to create a focal point under your coffee table.

 

Give a new look to your room by adding extra layers; you will be pleasantly surprised.

Rug Decorating Tips

Hey rug lovers!

My favorite season is here! Spring, the season of joy and colors. The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, the bees are buzzing and the weather is so delightful: a perfect reason to spend more time outside.

 

Thinking of an outdoor / terrace makeover? An Outdoor rug is the way to go as it’s a very easy and inexpensive way to add color and style to your outdoor space.

 

Finding the perfect outdoor rug can be a fun experience. Here are some points to consider when looking for the perfect match to your outdoor space. The first thing to keep in mind when looking for an outdoor rug is the size. First, you will need to measure how much space you have to work with. Then, given the variety of patio furniture that is out there, you will have to be sure to find a rug that’s the perfect fit.

 

Let’s not forget, since outdoor rugs are water resistant, you can easily decorate your outdoor space and poolside without any worries. Outdoor rugs are typically woven loose with no pile. This sort of weave not only allows the rug to breathe and dry more quickly than an indoor rug, it also allows water and dirt to pass through the rug reducing the chance of it accumulating mould and mildew.

 

As you know, the Spring/Summer months in fashion and home decor are filled with bright, flashy colors that pop. Having said this, now you’ll start seeing an influx of rugs in fabulous summer colors in a variety of palettes. Decorating your terrace or your back yard with an outdoor rug will add a unique flavor to your outdoor space. With so many selections to choose from, let’s look at my 2 favorite collections:
 
The illusion, available in bold transitional and soft contemporary patterns , will add a breath of freshness to your environment. Perfect indoors and out, the stylish Illusion collection is woven with the softest polypropylene available.

The sapphire, inspired by the ancient Indian art of color meditation, reinvents the allure of Sari silk rugs. A moody palette of dramatic jewel tones and antiqued motifs turn these flat weave masterpieces into a magical and fascinating canvas.

Rug Decorating Tips

Hey rug lovers!

We couldn't be more excited to introduce our second editorial newsletter!

 

As you may know, for nearly a decade, Persian rugs were not available in the marketplace due to the US embargo towards Iran. The good news is the embargo has finally been lifted and we are so excited to be able to offer you these exquisite rugs once again.

 

Worldwide, the most sought after type of rug is the Persian rug and, I have to admit, the most beautiful. Using the most select quality of wool and dyes, Persian handmade rugs can sometimes take years to create. Persian rugs are woven by nomadic tribes, in villages and towns, and even by royal court manufactories. Rug weaving is an integral part of Persian culture which has been handed down from fathers to sons for generations.

 

These masterpieces are woven in different towns such as Tabriz, Bijar, Hamadan, Bakhtiar, Gabbeh, Kashan, Isfahan, Nain and Shiraz, creating a unique set of characteristics depending on the region from where they are made.

 

Decorating your home with a Persian rug can add a unique flare to your space. With so many selections to choose from, let’s delve into the top three:
 
Gabbeh rugs, I would say, are the most well-known handmade rugs with an extra high pile and very simple, but rather stylish design. The uniqueness in the dyes and handspun wool results in a collage of similar hues, giving the Gabbeh rug its typical rich finish. The lustrous soft wool and tribal motifs makes the Gabbeh Persian rug a great decorative piece, in any décor.
Rug Decorating Tips

Gabbeh Rug

 
Tabriz is a city that played an important historical role in reviving the tradition of rug weaving after periods of decline. Rugs woven by tribes of Tabriz are distinguished by their fine wool, bright and complex colors. Nomadic tribes and village weavers often produce rugs with bolder more coarse designs, which are considered to be the most authentic and traditional rugs of Persia.
Rug Decorating Tips

Tabriz Rug

 
Isfahan rugs are famous for their intricate colors and artistic designs rendering them treasured in museums all over the world. With different and delicately executed designs ranging from central medallions to all-over florals using a plethora of vibrant colors, these rugs are known for their fine weave and excellent quality. Isfahan rugs will compliment any type of décor from modern to traditional.

We couldn't be more excited to introduce our first editorial newsletter!

In 2016, let the world into your home.
 

The New Year is always a good excuse to start over, to bring change and positive new habits into your life. Adding a new rug, a few pillows and a couple candles can completely change the atmosphere of your room on a budget!

 

During these cold months, winter might just make you love your home in new and unexpected ways.  Now is the time to add lots of layers to your rooms. This newsletter will highlight rug collections, helping you to choose the best fit for you.
 
The Serapi Rug Collection is very popular right now.  With its strong Persian influence, it’s immediately recognizable. Striking and majestic, these rugs reflect the famous geometric Serapi designs and colours of the older Persian Heriz rugs. These stunning area rugs are magnified by a versatile palette of soft hues and rich tones that blend traditional and modern elements, to embody elegance and sophistication.

Another trend that we see up and coming is reflected in the Ushak Rug Collection.  It's an inspiring blend of classical Turkish Ushak motifs and contemporary styles. Prized for its pastel colours, artistic designs and superior craftsmanship, this rug works well with both traditional and transitional home décors.

Last, but not least, I have to confess, my ultimate favourite is the Gazni Rug Collection.  These fine rugs are handwoven by Uzbek master weavers in Afghanistan with precious hand-spun Gazni wool. The wool is immersed in vegetable dyes until natural, beautiful soft tones are achieved. The transitional geometric style of these rugs work well in both traditional and contemporary décors, adding a distinctive allure and becoming the focus of your room.
