Needlepoint Rug, 3 Tips for Decorating with Green, Whites and Yellows

Posted by Abid Ilahi on Jul 14, 2011 4:36:00 PM

When used skillfully, greens, whites and yellows make a room feel soothingly cool in summer and sunny and warm in winter. Today we will gain 3 decorating insights from the work of two interior designers who started with two very different green, white and yellow needlepoint rugs.

Interior Designer Jere Bradwell started with the Bamboo geometric needlepoint rug becuase it's fresh greens, whites and butter yellows harmonize all the whites, green and yellows in the fabrics, furniture and walls. These greens and whites make are soothing and cooling in summer and the yellows make the room feel sunny and warm even on a cloudy winter day. Jere Bradwell, senior designer at European Home Collection, Holicong PA, wrote to Asmara "I am attaching pictures of our morning room from the (2011) Bucks County Designer House that opened last night to a gala preview party. We really got rave reviews from everyone on the green and white room, which is something you don’t see every day. Lots of people commented on the (needlepoint) rug, and many thought it must be a $10,000 rug, so maybe we will be selling it as well".
