Wall To Wall Carpet Styles That Make Great Area Rugs

For many of us, new flooring is simply not always in reach. However, this doesn’t mean you have to neglect your floors. Layering with an area rug is the perfect way to add warmth, dimension and interest to a room, and an easy way to keep your home on trend at a price that won’t break the bank. Our recommendation for finding the perfect area rug? Find a wall to wall (or broadloom) carpet you love, and have it cut and bound to your ideal dimensions. Insider tip: Depending on the size you’re looking for, you may be able to utilize a carpet remnant, saving yourself even more money. We’ve compiled 12 of our favorite wall to wall carpets that would make beautiful, on trend area rugs:

GO GEO

Geometric designs are everywhere in interiors and for good reason. Adding a geometric rug not only adds interest to a design, but is a wonderful way to break up an open concept layout to define an individual room or space. Dip your toe into this trend by opting for a subtle design within a neutral color family.

 

NATURAL FIBERS

Natural textiles and materials continue to make waves in the world of interior design and flooring has not been left behind. We’re seeing an increase in the amount of styles that evoke the look of naturally fibers like jute and sisal. Not only is this design extremely approachable, but it also nurtures a sense of well-being a comfort.

 

MOSAIC MOTIF

Mosaic-style design is one of this year’s top trends in flooring, and what better way to dabble than with an area rug. With so many colors and patterns, the options are endless for a mosaic-style area rug.

 

STRIKING STRIATIONS

Combining organic textural qualities with luxurious, lustrous accents, area rugs are mimicking the natural characteristics of wood and stone, making the perfect pair for rustic hardwood and matte tile flooring. This trending construction is achieved with an increasing use of striations along with blends of beige, gold, gray and taupe fibers.

Art Inspires Home Decor

Beautiful artwork has long been an inspiration in creating striking interiors. From the subject matter to the myriad of color combinations, art can be the perfect inspirational element to get the creative process underway. In this post I share three color and design boards inspired by three of my favorite paintings that illustrate how art can influence home design.

Modern Romance

The muted pastels, smoldering grays and ethereal whites of Sir Henry Raeburn’s famed portraiture “Miss Eleanor Urquhart” along with  Raeburn’s masterful ability to capture the soft, feminine beauty of the subject convey a timeless romantic aesthetic. These features inspired the “Modern Romance” color and design scheme.

Palazzo Posh

Sir Peter Paul Rubens captured the splendor and opulence of aristocratic Italian life during the Renaissance in his renowned portrait of Marchesa Brigida Spinola Doria. The “Palazzo Posh” color and décor scheme was inspired by the shimmering silver, gold and bronze hues of the Marchesa’s gown and the sumptuous velvet ruby red, black onyx and rich mahogany of the interior décor.

 

Copper Decorative Pillow from John Robshaw, Zebra Pillow from Surya, Lana Wall Sconce from Currey & Company, Hand Embroidered Brocade Pillow Cover from Banarsi Designs, Copper Decorative Pillow from John Robshaw, Griffin Charcoal Sofa from Urban Home, Hawthorne Ottoman from Bernhardt, Bravado Mahir Rectangle Rug from Karastan, Chandler Point Hardwood from Carpet One Floor & Home.

Farm Chic

Intense earth-inspired colors express the idyllic, romanticized farm life that Winslow Homer captured in his painting “The Dinner Horn”. The rustic, autumnal colors, and verdant meadow punctuated by the horn-blowers aqua tinged white dress billowing in the wind inspired the color scheme used in the “Farm Chic” décor scheme.
