What better way to keep your feet toasty warm than with a new rug! Socks will work too, so will Uggs, and heated foot spas… Apologies. I digress.
Check out my 7 picks for rockin’ rugs that will be sure to brighten your home all year round:
- Liuwa Rug, By Missoni Home (Available at Spence & Lyda, POA)
This bright chevron rug is for the girl-about-town who isn’t afraid to splurge. This vibrant piece will work well layered with subdued materials and colours. Don’t be afraid to mix prints, especially if working off a monochromatic palette.
- Citta Design, $1,190
Splurge moment – great for lifting a dining or living space. Mix with bright colours and metallic accents for a modern look. And don’t be afraid to throw on some more black for an edgy finish.
- IKEA, $99
For the risk taker – this piece tells a story. It’s the stand out feature of your room. Keep it masculine and ‘country’ with some leather, oak and giant antlers hanging above the fire place. Don’t over do it – nobody likes a theme. Unless of course Dr Quinn Medicine Woman is bringing Keith Urban as her plus one to your dinner party.
- Symmetric Floor Rug, By Freedom, $299
This piece gives you modern shabby chic all year round. Team up with a white coffee table, some fashion books, for your favourite candle and some pink tulips. Throw on a gold skull for good measure.
- St Tropez, by OzDesign Furniture, from $499.00
The epitome of beach side glamour, this soothing piece will lighten your space and broaden your floorboards. This palette works well with teak or walnut furniture. Using bright and white accessories will help open the space, especially if you’re decorating a small room/nook.
- Ikat Links Wool Rug, by West Elm, from $299.00
For the Flamingo with the perfect balance of culture and glamour. It says ‘I like white fabric lounges, champagne and orchids… but I’ve also been trekking through Morocco.’ Transeasonal colours and cool tones make this inviting rug the perfect conversation piece in your home.
- Isabella, by Matt Blatt, $595
For the Flamingo who knows what she wants…but also doesn’t. You want a bright, warm rug that will go with just about anything all year round, but you also want to look like a risk taker. As busy as this rug is, it works in just about any situation – under your dining table, bed, coffee table or desk. It works with a number of materials and is bright enough for summer, but warm enough for winter. It’s your ‘play it safe, by not playing it safe rug’. Ya dig?
