Layered rugs, a hallmark of contemporary design, are a stylish touch in this serene bedroom. The small tulip table tucked beside the bed is a modern accent, in addition to the white globe light. Neutral bed linens and pale gray walls keep the look understated yet inviting.
Global-inspired colorful rugs are layered on top of a woven natural fiber rug for a textured, cozy look. The contemporary white sofa is paired with a variety of patterned pillows, while a large piece of abstract art fills the wall.
Using the neutral sofa and coffee table as a base, the owner can easily switch out pillows, chairs and other accents to make the living room look brand new. A terra cotta vase with branches adds a natural touch to the space that complements the woven area rug below.
Layered rugs give this colorful, eclectic home office a unique look by mixing style and straying from traditional style norms. Stacked wooden boxes on the desk provide extra storage for knickknacks and act as a textural, homemade art piece.
Adding style underfoot is layered area rugs, a combination of natural fiber jute and cowhide. Built-in bookshelves provide storage, while exposed wood beams bring a rustic vibe to the space. A pair of gray chairs makes for an intimate seating area.
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.
Dress cold, bare dorm room floors with indoor-outdoor rugs that are inexpensive and hold up to a lot of traffic and spills. Here, we layered a black polypropylene rug on top of a larger sisal rug to add style and texture to the space. The black rug allows the white table top to pop, while the additional rugs compliment the light gold and turquoise tones of the breakfast tray.
The hanging wicker chair brings a charming outdoor-like element to the indoor design. A fur seat cushion throw adds a soft texture to the chair and compliments the white base of the room. A southwestern patterned rug adds a layer of color over the thick weaved rug below.
