Overdyed rugs are created through a multi-step process of bleaching, color saturation and a special drying process. This gives the rugs their amazing bold, deep colors. They are a great way to get the feel of a traditional Oriental rug with a more updated, modern look. Because of their rich colors and unique patterns, they add interest and a more curated feel to a space.
Overdyed rugs work as a great starting point and inspiration for decorating a space. They are becoming extremely popular because of their rich, vibrant colors that create beautiful, bold statements in a room. When decorating with overdyed rugs, it works well to pick the rug first and design the color scheme of the room around it. With the living room I designed below, I used a black overdyed rug as the foundation of the space, and then blended neutrals and other pops of colors to balance the colors in the space.
Invest in furniture pieces you love. I know this can be one of the most expensive parts of a room renovation, but it’s worth the wait and worth the price. Take your time. Having the right furniture is more important that having a lot of furniture. Also, add curated accessories. Gather them during your travels, scour flea markets, collect books about your interests, layer in different textures and shop for unique items you love over time.
