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.
A luxurious rug in the bathroom makes the space extra delightful for bare toes. This modern space keeps the rest of the room's style streamlined with a glass walk-in shower, vessel sink and floating vanity.
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 addition to traditional African patterns, new patterns are being designed by artists and artisans. The Day Rug by AphroChic (https://www.aphrochic.com/) is one such example. The dark blue shade is reflective of indigo design that can be found throughout West Africa, while the pattern is inspired by the designs of the famed ante-bellum, African American craftsman, Thomas Day. The print with a mix of lines and circles feels similar to many of the geometric prints found in traditional indigo print fabrics from the Bamana people of Mali and other West African cultures.
