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.

Their uncomplicated patterns and palettes accommodate a range of styles. These boldly colored geometric rugs can help to create a stronger statement.

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.
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.

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:

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.
