The unrelenting fury of winter has postponed thoughts of spring for those of us who live in the north. So it is especially encouraging to see that the March 2014 issues of major interior design magazines have not given up hope and are featuring more rooms with sunny colors. It is also nice to see Veranda Magazine revive from its recent decline. But other publications are not doing as well. Lonny Magazine had emerged from nowhere to promise a new answer to the digital conundrum, but they have had to cut back their publishing frequency. Elle Decor, Traditional Home and House Beautiful have fewer new and exciting rooms. But don't worry, I have compensated by extending coverage to newer more exciting magazines such as Luxe, Florida Design, New York Cottage and Gardens and Connecticut Cottages and Gardens. I hope you will find a stimulating variety in these 19 best interiors with decorative rugs from the March 2014 issues of the best interior design magazines.

Exiled to Paris: Windsors Devise Regal Style with Needlepoint Rugs

Decades before the press became enamored by Princess Diana, there was a romantic British royal couple who had an even more engaging story. It starts with the dashingly handsome Edward VIII, king of the world's most powerful empire. Edward decided to marry Wallis Simpson, a bewitching American divorcée, but British law did not permit such a marriage. Against determined opposition from the Royal Family and the British government, Edward held steadfast and abdicated from the throne of England in a dramatic radio address on December 11, 1936. The young King spoke to a stunned world “I have found it impossible to carry the heavy burden of responsibility and to discharge my duties as King as I would wish to do, without the help and support of the woman I love.” The couple married in France six months later and lived in exile for the rest of their lives, mostly in Paris but also in the Bahamas and New York. With Stephane Boudin of Maison Jansen as adviser and guide, the Duchess set about designing a regal home that mixed French antiques with English needlepoint rugs to remind the Duke of the English palaces he had left behind. She scoured the antique shops of Paris and hired the finest artisans to create the rooms featured below.
