3 ways with RUGS

When it comes to floors… I’m a fan of wooden floors throughout a house (one day I will have a hardwood floor!). But there’s nothing like stepping out of a bed onto a softness, or adding colour, pattern, and warmth with rugs. They’re also GREAT for renting when you end up with a sludgy green carpet in your bedroom (hello uni flat). In fact I went through a bit of an obsession with buying little rugs/ throws, and so I’ve put together three ideas to use rugs in the home in slightly different ways.

1 // LAYER UP
Create a laid-back, bohemian vibe with rugs mix and matched and layered over each other. This is also cheaper/ easier way of covering a large surface area than putting down a wall to wall carpet. Stick to rugs in a similar shade/ tone and with all-over patterns.

2 // VINTAGE IN THE KITCHEN
I love the look of vintage mixed with modern. How amazing do these worn vintage carpets look against a more clean polished background? It puts them in the limelight even more than if they were used in a more traditional way. I’d stick to dark colours though, and keep away from the washing up/ cooking area.

3 // ON THE WALL
We stick massive paintings on our walls so why not a gorgeous textured rug to create a cosy and luxurious feel? This idea would look great in the bedroom, perhaps used as a headboard. This is a lovely way to use a rug you might love but you find too bold to use on the floor. Or one that you think is too special to be trodden all over!

    rugs over hardwood are so so so good. i am definitely a hardwood/floor rug kind of person 🙂 i really like the more intricate designs, but the soft fluffy kinds are fun during cold months too!
