How to Pick the Best Rugs for Adjacent and Adjoining Rooms

Posted by Abid Ilahi on Nov 19, 2015 2:30:00 AM

Imagine you are leading guests on a tour of your home. As you walk from one room to the next do you see a consistent design aesthetic or do some rooms jump out because they have not yet been updated? If after this tour you decide to freshen the neglected rooms, where would you start? Many decorators start with the rug as it makes it easier to find complementary fabrics, paint colors and accessories. However, choosing a rug raises such questions as- how well matched do rugs in adjoining rooms have to be? Should you even try to match area rugs in adjoining rooms or should they all be different? Are there rules for how to coordinate different area rugs? how do you put oriental rugs in adjoining rooms? how to pick complementing designer rugs for one room? and how to have area rugs in adjoining living and dining rooms? I asked Jackie Ostrander, a highly sought after rug consultant to interior designers in Greenwich, Connecticut, Palm Beach and Naples, Florida to help me answer these questions.

Posted by Abid Ilahi on Apr 18, 2014 8:50:00 PM

A common mistake when designing blue and white rooms in the Hamptons, Nantucket or any other seaside location is to use just blue and white. Confining the color palette to just blue and white can produce a cold and unwelcoming atmosphere. Interior designers have long known that cool colors such as blue and green need to be balanced by warm colors such as beige, yellow, brown, pink etc. The warm colors can be used as accents or in larger areas such as on walls or as accents in blue rugs. The 14 gorgeous rooms by top interior designers show several different ways you can design blue and white rooms that are not only elegant but are also warm and inviting.
