Shades of brown and cream are layered in the decor of this contemporary bedroom making a serene, elegant setting. Instead of rugs or carpeting, the designers chose a dark brown wood floor, a crisp contrast to the white bed and nightstands.
Adding a rug underfoot will not only add softness to a hard-surface floor, but can also help unify your design by visually containing the space. If you already have large area rugs or carpeting in place, no worries—just layer your holiday addition right on top.
A rug from ABC Carpet and Home helps soften the living room's hardwood floors, ensuring that guests feel totally comfortable. Thanks to its geometric print, the rug perfectly complements the pillows and legs of the coffee table.
StudioHue chose to apply a neutral background color--gray--to this little girl's nursery so that the room could be easily changed as she grows. The designers added highlight colors, shapes and fabrics to add interest, such as the white scalloped mobile over an oval crib, geometric shapes painted on the wall and a soft fur area rug atop the carpet.
High-grade nylons combine our favorite factors: durability + stain-resistance + oh-so-cushy. Kelly Sutherland of Connie Vernich Interior Designs says, "Go with a rug that is soft, plush and comfortable on your feet, but that also has stain-resistant qualities. I love a high-grade nylon, for example. For this particular rug, a patterned carpet with great scale was selected. The rug material is very soft underfoot and easy to maintain as it is constructed from a high-grade nylon. The edges were serged in a matching thread to the carpet to provide a high-end traditional rug finish. Don't forget the final touch – a quality rug cushion ensures extra comfort while keeping the rug in good shape for as long as possible."
To make this small(ish) apartment feel bigger during its renovation, the once-sunken floor into the living room was raised to create one seemingly larger, more open space. The carpeted floor was removed and replaced with wood. A comfortable entry unifies the space.

This living room is filled with fabrics that are as practical as they are lovely to look at. The blue armchairs are upholstered in Crypton velvet. The ottoman is leather. And the rug is a custom-cut square of durable carpet.
The old, worn carpeting was removed, and the room now features dark stained hardwood flooring and area rugs. The low windows get new white trim, and the bead board on the walls and ceiling are painted in a muted gray-green.
Layering a faux fur rug over the graphic-patterned carpet brings extra plushness and helps to define the reading nook in this master bedroom. A classic blue-and-white color palette is used in the armchair and Roman shades.
In this spacious second bedroom, soft fabrics gently balance the white textured walls. A gray area rug placed on top of the orange carpet reinforces the room's comfortable nature, while the thorn-like floor lamp strikes a sharp, yet stylish visual contrast.
