House Beautiful's 5 Best Rooms with Designer Rugs in December 2016

Posted by Abid Ilahi on Nov 29, 2016 12:36:26 PM

House Beautiful's December 2016 issue seems to align with the latest Elle Decor and Veranda in focusing on richly colored traditional interiors adorned by gorgeous oriental rugs. The rugs this time are in gold, green and red and create just the right atmosphere in Charlotte Moss's Manhattan townhouse and in the "reclaimed barn" look of the sophisticated year round getaway in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains designed by architect James Carter and interior designer Jane Hawkins Hoke. I hope you enjoy House Beautiful's five best interiors in December 2016.


1. Living Room, Upper East Side, New York  

In the library of designer Charlotte Moss's upper east side New York townhouse and a cream, green and brown oriental rug complements a tan wallcovering and exuberant prints.



2. Great Room, North Carolina

A natural fiber rug compliments the reclaimed wood ceiling and field stones walls creating a "converted barn" atmosphere in the great room of a newly built year-round retreat in Cashiers in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina designed by architect James Carter and interior designer Jane Hawkins Hoke.

3. Dining Alcove, North Carolina

At the far end of the great room a dining alcove provides an intimate breakfast area in the Cashiers, North Carolina retreat.



4. Dining Room, North Carolina

A pair of red oriental rugs define the dining area and accentuate the feeling of an old house.



5. Sitting Area, North Carolina

A red and green oriental rug pulls together the colors of the upholstery and the foliage visible from double height windows at the far end of the great room in Cashiers, North Carolina.
