No need to use a fabric rug in this outdoor space, given the orange and white-bordered rug painted on the wood deck. The cheery bright color scheme continues with the outdoor dining table and orange and white stools.
This spacious bedroom features an eclectic sitting area with a patterned rug to anchor the space. A detailed white stenciled border adds interest to the room, while a studded dresser offers a glamorous touch.
This transitional nursery uses a large, plush area rug to make a soft play area over tile flooring. Red accents in the rug, along with the bright border add contrast and interest to the predominantly white space.
A rustic console table provides convenient storage and placement for lighting behind the sofa in this living room. A large neutral rug with contrasting border defines the sitting area, while the coat of pale blue on the fireplace adds another layer of color to the neutral space.
A bright white base allows pops of color to bring this space to life. Multicolored fish swim the walls of this aquatic-themed girls' bedroom. A lime-green area rug and turquoise-blue dresser add bold color to the white wainscoting. Pulled from color in the fish-print wallpaper, an aqua border around the white Roman shades allows the window treatment to stand out from the colorful patterned walls.
This elegant yet inviting master bedroom is a treat for restful eyes, as designer Heather McManus dips her brush in tones of gold. The soft-hued area rug, ornate draperies and upholstered furnishings polish the more simple designs of the sleigh bed and nightstand. The star attraction of the space, however, is the softly painted border of the tray ceiling, in a French design, that gives the room depth and drama.
