Hands down, the quickest and easiest way to transform a space is with an area rug. Since this room is casual, its floors are covered with a wool flat-weave rug, which is easy to care for, lightweight and easy to move around. Anytime you're using area rugs in high-traffic spaces, be sure to invest in a rug pad to ensure it stays in place and eliminates any trip hazards.
Add energy to your outdoor space with an all-season rug designed to stand up to the elements. Inspired by the bright geometric motifs of traditional Mexican tiles, the Talavera Tile Indoor/Outdoor Rug, $79.95 to $599.95, from Plough & Hearth, is made from tough polyester and designed to resist mildew and fading. No need to worry about outdoor traffic: just hose the rug down to clean it.
In the master bathroom, touches of wood everywhere create a warm, rustic feel enhanced by the Oriental rug on the floor and the soft brown countertop and tiles in the shower. The large mirror visually helps to open up the room and raise the ceiling.
