Neutral colors with pops of pink, purple, apricot and yellow and unexpected juxtaposition of contemporary and traditional pieces dominate the 10 best interiors with decorative rugs in the March 2015 Elle Decor. This is one of the best Elle Decor issues in a long time which is why I extended the selection to 10 interiors instead of the usual 5.
The March 2015 Architectural Digest's 9 best interiors with decorative rugs are all about combining traditonal and modern sensibilities to create memorable interiors.
The 7 best interiors with decorative rugs in the January-February 2015 Veranda have one thing in common- they each celebrate traditional style in a fresh new way. John Oetgen mixes modern and traditional to create a smart and cozy North Carolina mountain home, designer Brooke Giannetti and architect husband Steve build a new California farmhouse that is both chic and unfussy and Suzanne Kasler transforms a historic Virginia house into a luxuriously traditional yet clean and modern home.
If you are tired of neutrals and are also unsure of how to introduce color into your next decorating project, you should consider green. Green is safer than most other colors because every color in the rainbow goes with green. If you paint the walls green or start with a green rug it will become much easier to find great coordinating fabrics, furniture and accessories. Today’s 14 gorgeous green rooms show:

A well-chosen decorative rug can set the right feeling tone, comfort level and color palette for a room. But with so many types of rugs in the market, it is hard to know which kind would be best for a room. Today we start a new series of posts to help you become more knowledgeable about rugs and the looks you can create with them. We start with 12 beautiful rooms with 12 different types of rugs - Art Deco, Moroccan, Contemporary, Neoclassical, Cowhide, Floral, Geometric, Bessarabian, Silk, Damask, Dhurrie and Oushak. Later posts will help you distinguish rug quality and feature additional types of decorative rugs.
