Boho Runners Done Right

Lately I’ve found myself thinking about all of the long and narrow spaces within the walls of my home that could use a little something before cold weather strikes. Mainly because I don’t want to freeze my toes off walking around on cold nights, but also because those areas are missed opportunities to add even more personality to the decor.

When it comes to rugs my personal preference leans in the bohemian direction. I love the colors and patterns associated with the style, not to mention that those patterns generally help hide marks and stains exceptionally well. I have a space similar to the one above between an island and a wall of cabinets in my kitchen. The small rug I have in place now is perfect for summer, when cool wood floors feel oh-so-good underfoot, but I’d like to add something more for the later months. A runner is the perfect size and some bold color wouldn’t go unnoticed once the outside world goes grey.

There’s a small hallway between the entry into my house and the kitchen that I’d love to layer up. I already have a beautiful rug laid in front of the door, but am entertaining the idea of overlaying a runner that would lead you into the next room directly on top. If ever there’s a time to take advantage of the tiered look it’s this time of year!

I’m out to conquer the common misconception that you can’t place a floor rug on top of wall to wall. That’s right, you can! My upstairs hallway is covered in the stuff, beige no less. A pretty boho runner full of deep tones and pattern is just begging to be put down to liven the space up. It will also make that early morning walk to the shower just a little more interesting!
