It is hard to imagine how an unattractive space can be utterly transformed until you have seen these before and after photos of the 6 best rooms with designer rugs in the November 2015 Architectural Digest. These gorgeous spaces are a testament to the vision of designers Elissa Cullman, Victoria Hagan and Shawn Henderson working in collaboration with architects John B.

The 15 chic Colorado mountain interiors with decorative rugs avoid the clichés of antlers and Navajo rugs. Instead they offer a range of styles ranging from Atelier AM's mid-century modern to David Easton's sophisticated continental flair and Samuel Botero's English Club in the west. I hope you will enjoy the best of the interiors that have appeared over the years in Architectural Digest.

Last month I predicted that Orange Rugs and Coral Rugs will soon become highly fashionable because these colors were a hot new trend in women's fashion for Spring-Summer 2012 on the January and February runway shows in Milan, Paris and New York. When I made that prediction, I had no idea that just a month after appearing on fashion runways these colors would be dominating the offerings at home furnishings retailer Crate and Barrel. I discovered the speed at which trends are jumping from women fashion to home furnishing last Saturday while taling a casual walk through Boston's upscale Chestnut Hill Mall.

“People always ask us how do we begin every project - and I am going to give you an idea that will make this really easy – always, always begin with the living room carpet. If you think about it, the living room carpet is the largest object in the home and that is going to set up the logic and the palette for the rest of your home…” Elissa Cullman in an AD video interview. Ellisa, always on the AD100 list is the go-to designer for Oprah Winfrey and Candice Bergen, to name just two from her celebrity client list.
