Styling Secrets and Quick Tips: Layered Rugs

Hi, guys! So I know layering rugs is not a new thing but in case you haven't had a chance to try it or maybe didn't realize it is such a great option for working within a budget or using vintage rugs that are often odd sizes, I thought I'd bring it up again. LAYERED RUGS ARE AWESOME!

  • If you're working with a larger space like a living or dining area, a room size rug can easily break the bank. Instead, try layering a less expensive sisal or jute rug under a smaller size of the kilim of your dreams.
  • Have some vintage rugs that you adore but find they are too odd of a size to fit anywhere? Layer one (or more!) over something cozy and neutral.
  • Mixing colors and patterns can instantly create a high-style feel. Typically I would suggest keeping one of the pieces a bit calmer, but if the rest of your style follows suite, don't be afraid to go bold!

Pillow Talk: Simply Summer

Whether on a porch swing, a back patio, or in your blissful air-conditioning, summer is perfect for grabbing a novel, a tall glass of iced tea, and kicking back for awhile. These throw pillows are some of my favorites for the season! You don't have to give up coziness or texture just because it's summer either! Just be sure to balance heavier knits with bright colors and lighter fabrics.

Pillows are easy to rotate with the seasons. Choose a few neutral ones as your base and then add bolder prints or seasonal styles to liven a space.

As a general rule, pair: 
{1 organic print - floral, leaves/vines, etc} {1 geometric print} {1+ solid or very small scale print}

There are other combinations that will work lovely, but this is a great place to start.
