Part VIII: Rug + Room
An almost perfectly designed room that’s lacking a rug is akin to an awards show caliber ensemble without the perfect shoes. In other words – a big deal. If you’ve ever come across one in your Pinterest feed or a home decor magazine then you know just what I’m talking about.
This bathroom has got it goin’ on. The vertically stacked rows of subway tiles, a veined marble floor, even a little nook for your bath time necessities. It even has what’s one of the best modern clawfoot tubs I’ve seen yet – just check out those feet! It also makes me nervous to think about stepping out and slipping on that pristine flooring. I’d bring in a smallish rug that doesn’t detract from the overall aesthetic, something with an organic feel that adds to the spa-like experience you’re sure to have in this room.
I’m really into the way this gallery wall was pulled together, with little to no space between the frames. And the color of the flooring and walls is almost an exact match to my own home, so you knowI’m on board with both of those decorating decisions. What I dislike is how interesting the walls are when juxtaposed with that bare floor. Let’s add in a runner with a muted color palette that makes the space feel more well-rounded, drawing your eye up towards the frames on the wall rather than towards the bare floor beneath your feet.
The vibe of this office space is spot on sophisticated. The wood tones partnered with moody blacks and grey let you know that this is where the work gets done, but that maybe this is also where 5 o’clock happy hour occurs. It’s that second part that makes me want to inject something with just a bit of color into the decor, like this area rug with the perfect mid-century colors and a not too serious design.
Now this doing room is F-U-N. Such great natural lighting, and those slanted walls flat-out stunning. (Although that one mismatched chair makes me a little itchy.) I’d like to bring in just a bit more of that dusty pale pink hue in the form of a large floor rug with a minimal pattern for more textural detail.
This looks like a home I could sink right into! Few things are more welcoming than a well-worn leather couch and big dining table – and those high ceilings and beams are to die for. I even like that the walls are bare, but would love to see a little more color in the space. Check out this patterned rug that will most definitely bring some personality and jolt into the picture.
