Home Style Ideas: Decorating With Rugs


Rugs are one of those items that have the ability to change the entire look of a room. Whether you’re wanting an ultra modern edge with a monochrome rug, a cozy feel with a Turkish patterned rug, a bright and fun look with a pom pom rug, or something in between, there’s a rug to suit every single room in your home.

A black and white patterned rug adds a modern feel to an already sleek room. Patterned rugs work best in monochrome rooms where they act as the feature of the room. Gold accessories add a glamorous touch.

A Turkish style patterned rug exudes a warm and homely feel particularly when combined with wooden furniture and simple, neutral walls. We love how the lighting feature in this room is perfectly positioned above the rug, highlighting it’s gorgeous colours.

Keep things light with a natural toned rug. This style of rug gives a feeling of homely warmth without becoming the focus of the room – perfect for allowing you to accessorise with feature elements such as stand-out vases, furniture and artwork.

Choosing a bold patterned rug works well in an open plan living space as it doesn’t overwhelm the eye. The blue and white tones in this rug are perfectly offset by the wooden furniture and modern lighting.

A monochrome striped rug in the hallway entrance to your home is a great way to give a stylish first impression. Choose a long rug that fits nicely in your hallway or entrance area. Talk about a grand entrance! We love how this rug draws the eye towards the modern art pieces on the wall.

Rugs are not just for interiors either! They just as easily add a classy feature to an outdoor entertaining area. This one in particular, is durable enough to be outside and yet it transforms the area into a cosy outdoor room as compared to a large BBQ area.

Nature meets whimsical in this inspired bedroom. The rug perfectly complements the artistic feature wall, while offering a subtle quirkiness to the room. The black and white soft furnishings complete this gorgeous look.
