Rugs are a quick and easy way to add a punch of life to any room as well as define your living spaces.

Things to remember when buying a rug:

Comfort matters. 

I am a firm believer that homes are meant to be lived in, not just looked at. Pick an area rug that makes your feet smile too. There is no sense in creating a beautiful space for you and your loved ones to enjoy and making it uncomfortable to hang out on. Right?

Pop off. 

Sometimes a playful & bright rug is just what your otherwise ordinary room needs to bring the space to life and add some warmth. And my advice? Go big or go home. Ensure that the rug you pick is large enough and bold enough to define the space you are placing it in. Use it as a way to invite people into a specific place within your home….

Here a few examples of successful and surprising rug choices I’m loving.

Eclectic & Effortless

Practical Tip of the Day: 

You don’t always need to pay big bucks for that huge area rug you think your room can’t live without. Layering smaller, more cost friendly, rugs is an easy way to add the additional square footage you are looking for without breaking the bank. You can also create a look that is unique to you and your home!
