House Beautiful, September 2017: 5 Best Rooms with Designer Rugs

Posted by Abid Ilahi on Aug 31, 2017 8:46:37 PM

The September 2017 House Beautiful is a celebration of lively color and youthful energy in traditional design and includes designer Sara Gilbane's playful design for her parent's home in Palm Beach and designer Mary McGee's stunning use of color in a Georgian-style house in Wellesley, Massachusetts. As always we zero in is on how designer rugs were used to pull the room into a stylish whole. Here are my picks for the 5 best interiors in the September 2017 House Beautiful.

1. Gold, Yellow, Green and Coral 

In the dining room of her parents Palm Beach home, designer Sara Gilbane chose an abaca rug to add warm color and texture to complement the pink and white tented ceiling and grass cloth covered walls had hand-painted in a vintage Everglades theme. A flamingo colored Murano glass chandelier completes the effect.

In the living room of the Sara Gilbane designed Palm Beach house a blue and white oriental rug with an intricate geometric pattern adds refinement and complements the yellow and blue abstract paintings, melon colored raffia walls and pale blue and pink upholstery.
