Sisal, special spaces

Sisal works well in so many settings, here a simple sisal rug adds texture and a natural element to the gilded decor

Time and time again I find myself going back to golden accents, I find it always a classic way to liven up my space.

Bedroom, special spaces

Combining prints brings excitement to a room—Set small patterns against large ones, limit your palette, and include one big solid in the scene.

An oversized sisal rug and a few well placed mirrors can make a small space look grand...this room is a perfect example.

This is proof-positive that even a shag rug can look downright elegant in ivory.

This rug is so strong and unique it is the perfect choice for these rounded furniture forms. I just love this combo. The rug looks an awful lot like one of our newest rugs.

Artfully layered rugs leave a lasting impression. Classic sisal provides the perfect neutral background just waiting for color and texture to be layered on top!

These rugs may look delicate but they are anything but that. They are amongst my favorite choices at ThePerfectRug.com where I constantly scour the selections.  I admit I hadn't given them a second glance until I saw a variety of them positioned in the one of the most elegant/cool homes I've ever seen.  Not the photo above, this one is from Better Homes.  I highly recommend you take these into consideration.

We were tickled when Southern Living contacted us about this Foyer Makeover in their December issue.  The entry had good bones to start with and the designer was Tobi Fairley.  The goal was to redesign a room for her client in a cost-effective way, all via mail order. She did this via InBox Interiors a part of her design business that empowers clients to handle the purchasing on their own once she's delivered all the specifications for the room.  Her signature style with your signature ordering skills makes for a great win-win! The rug could be ordered in any size with the border matching her vision for the room. We love the whole room but best of all it has the perfect rug.

Every Christmas tree deserves it's own perfect setting. We like to start from the ground up.  So we've paired these trees, from kitschy to modern with a variety of perfect rugs.  I especially like the white tree paired with the purple shaggy rug. Which is your favorite?
