Cozy Up: Rug Delight Guide

One of my favorite pieces that really ties the room together is a well-chosen rug.  I was absolutely in heaven on a trip to Morocco when I was able to see each step in the process of their exquisite craftsmanship and explore the souks for incredible finds.  I was in Berber and Beni Ourain heaven!  Here are a few important thoughts when picking the right rug for your cozy space.

Build On Your Palette
Your rug selection is another opportunity to ground your palette with soft luxury.  I like balanced hues that pull the room together and create a snug feeling without appearing small.

Let’s all shout from the roof tops: size matters!  A rug that is too small for a space can create a disjointed appearance and fall flat of that polished look you’re going for. If you’re just dying to use your favorite antique or vintage rug that’s just a bit too small thoughtfully layered rugs can help you pull it off!  Whether you accent it with a solid or layer patterns you can stretch the focus and create something effortlessly beautiful in the process!

Underfoot Feel
Having a soft or plush underfoot feel to your rug is another great way to pull together a cozy feel.  Rugs with a higher pile, wool composition, a soft sheepskin, or that perfectly worn in kilim are just a few great options to treat your feet!

Don’t forget to protect your hardwoods!  The rug pad is almost as crucial as the rug itself because it doesn’t matter how beautiful a rug looks if it’s slipping and sliding and you’re constantly tripping over it!  Check out more rugs we love on our Pinterest Board.

Have a great day,
