I am totally hooked on discovering new outdoor furnishings and accents!  I can’t stop searching for pieces that I want to add to my newly furnished patio.  I think that it is unnecessary to have a rug for the size of my little patio, but I have found some gorgeous outdoor rugs that are really inspiring (I just love the color in my pavers too much to cover them up).

Lauren’s Rug Philosophy:

When it comes to interiors, I specify a rug for almost every project I work on… this is because I really feel that a rug defines a space, grounds the furniture in the room, and adds in color and texture.  This same idea can definitely still apply to outdoor spaces as well!

Here are some of the rugs I love!

I posted recently about a collection of some gorgeous grey pillows; a very affordable and easy way to change up your room’s design and color scheme!  One more way to change up the color and texture in a room is the rug!!

A little tip when selecting the right size for the room- the front two legs of all the main pieces of furniture need to be resting on the rug!  This way, the pieces all feel grounded and the space is defined as a seating area, dining area, sleeping area, etc… get it?

A room that either lacks a rug or has one that is too small can have a feeling of chaos, that all the pieces of furniture are just floating around the room.  The majority of the time, you will want an 8’x10′ rug for the space.  See my diagrams below for ideas. 

Here is another collection of some beautiful and hip grey rugs for inspiration! And of course, if you need help designing your own space, contact me!

Brilliant colors like Ruby, Amethyst, Citrine, and Sapphire to make your room sparkle, how could you not fall in love?  Jewel tones are one of my favorite color palettes to work, they are so rich and inviting, and maybe even a little risky.

Not ready to commit to Emerald Green walls just yet?  Using these colors in accents is definitely a way to add a punch to any room…
