Elle Decor's 5 Best Rooms with Designer Rugs in December 2016

Posted by Abid Ilahi on Nov 13, 2016 1:06:00 PM

Elle Decor's December 2016 issue seems to be predicting a return to richly colored traditional interiors with gorgeous Aubusson rugs as in the 17th-century Manor House in England designed by Laura Ingrams for a young Baron and his family. This trend is carried through to a magical alpine getaway in St. Moritz, Switzerland by Studio Peregalli. Contemporary design is becoming more luxurious as in the Lee Mindel designed Palm Beach oceanfront. I hope you enjoy my pick of Elle Decor's five best in December.

1. A Stately Home in England 

A blue and rose Axminster carpet inspired by a 17th century Aubusson rug adorns the library of Somerleyton Hall a Jacobean manor in Suffolk, England built in 1610 and transformed to the Italianate style in the mid 1800's. Designer Laura Ingrams has transformed for the young family of the 4th Baron Somerleyton.

5. St. Moritz, Switzerland

An antique Oushak rug conjures up a magical atmosphere in the living room of an Alpine getaway in St. Moritz, Switzerland designed by Studio Peregalli.

 

"Our idea always is, when you come inside, you are in a space that is out of time, not too fashionable, not too trendy, not too connected to a specific period, but a little bit of a dream" Peregalli told Elle Decor

5a. St. Moritz, Switzerland

 The 17th-century Oushak rugin the living room is a fragment taken from a partially worn-out Oushak rug. "They are very delicate, so it is rare to find the right dimension in good condition," Peregalli explained to Elle Decor. The fireplace is 18th-century Austrian porcelain. The embossed-leather paneling originally hung in a German castle. Peregalli had artisans highlight the raised motifs with gold leaf so they glow when mountain sunlight filters into the room.
