When considering rugs for areas in your home, ask yourself: Is it a high traffic area? Do you want wool, cotton, or natural fiber underfoot? Is this a big investment or do you plan to replace your rugs every few years to freshen up your home? If the rug is not central to your design scheme, a more neutral rug works perfectly. Looking for the perfect color way? A custom rug may be the answer for you. Cottage style rugs are a core element of any casual, comfortable design solution. Frequently room designs are built around a rug you love. Or the right area rug helps to pull together an existing room.
Before you buy that lamp that you simply MUST have, think about where it will fit in your home. Will your chunky leg table look right with that delicate chandelier? Does the lamp height work with your existing side tables – will it dominate the room or fade into the background? There are so many choices when it comes to lighting, the decision can feel overwhelming. Rules of thumb: for a dining table, the diameter of a hanging fixture should be about 1/3 of the table’s width; for a table lamp, the visual weight of the base should be about 2/3 of the entire lamp.
A room without wall decor is simply unfinished. Almost anything can be considered interesting wall art – you don’t have to limit yourself to pictures, mirrors and/or clocks. Try a mix of your collectibles or favorite dishes to bring warmth and personality to your home. More importantly, wall art doesn’t have to be expensive – but it should be something you love! You can see everything online available for every room and style with all the options and colors to customize your décor.
