Beautiful Area Rugs

Area Rugs1

Add warmth and beauty with an area rug

Area Rugs2Even though rugs are a design element that we walk all over, they are an important part of your interior environment and a perfect addition to create warmth, definition, and beauty in a room.

Rugs make us feel good in so many ways – by making our feet happy as we move around the house and by adding a warm finishing touch that can be playful or sophisticated, modern or traditional.

Beautiful rugs are functional, too.

Area rugs also add function: They are an acoustical damper, keeping noise down from Area Rugs3heavy footsteps and children playing. They also work to square off functional areas of a room; for example, the conversational area of a room and the dining area.

When selecting a rug, take into account the floor under the rug, too. For example, add soft wool to hard wood, smooth silk to rough stone, or thick shag to flat tile.

Area rugs come in so many choices.

Consider the many choices of color, style, price and material when you select a rug, such as:
– Solid colorsArea Rugs4
– Abstract patterns
– Faux animal prints
– Ethnic looks
– Historic Oriental rug designs
– Traditional wool or silk
– Practical cotton or blends
– Avantgarde designs and materials
– Shaggy synthetic fibers

Step on it this season and add a new rug! It will add luxury and depth to your room.

“This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.”

Every year, twice a year, Pantone hosts a secret meeting of representatives from various nations’ color standards groups. After two days of presentations and debate, they choose a color for the following year to be the Pantone Color of the Year. This color is then featured with multiple palettes for all seasons, in all design markets. From fashion to graphic to interior design, Marsala will be finding its way into all of them.

You may love it or hate it,  but Marsala will be an easier color to work with than last year’s Radiant PantoneMarsala2Orchid. With its red-brown deep tone, it is warm and inviting and gives a richness to the space. Whether you use it as an accent to other colors or use it to establish a strong statement, it will give an elegant feel to your room.
