We love when our favorite big-box stores carry legitimate sustainable products. West Elm's handwoven Boucle Rug is made from 100 percent Indian jute, an affordable vegetable fiber that can be spun into durable threads. While we're fond of the trendy slate color, the reversible jute rug is also available in a rainbow of neutral hues.
Vibrant colors, mixed patterns and styles, expressive art and unique accessories give this eclectic sitting room panache! Unique and varying wallpapers break up the neutral wall paint, while plants scattered throughout the room make it feel alive. A room like this is bound to be a guest's favorite.
All-white walls and neutral tufted sofas keep this living space looking clean and new; fun and funky pillows can be changed out frequently or seasonally to reflect the time of year, the holiday or just your mood! Beautiful plants and flowers pop and wow in this neutral space, and the jute rug is easy to maintain.
A jute rug is a simple base for this living room; for a touch of exotic, a zebra rug is layered on top. Layering a smaller rug atop a larger one can be a good strategy in a big room, when you have bold colors or pattern that you don't want to take over the space.
A thin black-and-white striped rug layered over a jute rug works to ground the round coffee table in this small living space. A navy blue velvet sofa with a trio of different patterned pillows pairs with a skinny midcentury modern end table to complete the stylish and sophisticated design.
Throw pillows in blue and yellow liven up this traditional living room’s overall neutral color palette. Designer Kristen Hutchins layered a patterned wool rug over a simpler jute rug, and says the key to layering rugs is making sure the larger, main rug is neutral. "If you start out with a larger, neutral rug as the base, you can add a fun, patterned rug to define just the seating area,” she says.
A mix-and-match dining set anchors this eclectic dining room featured on HGTV's Design Star All Stars. White curtains pair with striped walls, while an understated area rug works with the neutral chairs.
Designer Brian Patrick Flynn says this large area rug that helps anchor the dining room looks like a chunky Nordic sweater, handmade with black and gray jute and wool with eyelash fringe detailing. A premium nonslip rug pad underneath protects the weave and helps extend the life of the rug.
This classic midcentury modern home is decorated floor to ceiling with handmade objects and artisanal details. From textured art to woven jute rugs, organic elements add depth and character throughout the home.
