Idea Gallery: Area Rugs
I've been on the hunt for an area rug for our living room for...um...well...about 2 years now. Talk about indecisive, right?! I can easily select an area rug for a client but when it comes to my own home, well, it's a whole different story. My husband and I live in a large one bedroom apartment, where the main living area is one big open space. We have our dining area / design library (makes for an interesting combo) and then our living room with a giant sectional, coffee table, etc. What's always bothered me is the "sea" of beige apartment of carpet that dominates the entire space, which is where the need for an area rug comes in. Most people only think of using a rug on hard surface flooring, but you can also use over carpet to define the area as its own space. What are your thoughts on area rugs? Do you prefer pattern, texture, solid...please share! P.S. - be sure to see my list of online rug resources below...
