How to Give Rooms a Young Energy: Use Gold Rugs and Joyful Color

Posted by Abid Ilahi on May 2, 2013 10:16:00 PM

When interior designer Susan Nelson was asked to design the living room in Washington Design Center's prestigious DreamHome, she immediately recalled seeing a gold rug with bright colors that she thought would be perfect for infusing the room with youthful energy, "My goal was to design a pretty living room that would bring a smile to anyone who entered", said Nelson. "The first design decision was to use the Asmara Pamplona gold Savonnerie rug to center the furniture. I just love this geometric, architectural rug and can’t help but smile when I look at all those colors – yellow, green, coral, turquoise, lavender..." Interior designer Christina Murphy a member of House Beautiful's "America's Top 100 Designers," would have agreed.

Phoebe Howard Sun Room Floats on Blue White Geometric Oriental Rug

Posted by Abid Ilahi on Nov 2, 2011 6:56:00 PM

Sun rooms should welcome and relax you and your guests and promote a pleasant social atmosphere for smiles and lively conversation.  But sun rooms can be a challenge when decorating because it is easy to over emphasize the sun and make the room less inviting in the summer. A sunroom with too many warm colors can feel hot in summer and decorators plan for this by using a mix of warm and cool colors.  Phoebe Howard does an amazing job in this sun room by using cool blues and aqua in the larger areas such as the rug and the upholstery and then adding warm accent colors such yellow and orange in the painting.
  • Phoebe Howard begins by laying a cooling and soothing blue and white small scale geometric oriental rug.  This rug can gives the feeling of a refreshing pond to cool your feet while relaxing and enjoying the sun and the garden views outside.
  • Carrying the pond analogy further, aqua cushions on dark wicker sofas and chairs offer a cool place to rest and feel calm.
  • The lighting too is calming, and the blue colors make the room feel cooler on hot days. Tall green plants filter the sunlight and connect the sunroom to the garden.
  • Carrying the pond metaphor further, the coffee table is a small "island" for resting drinks.
  • To bring in just enough warmth, Phoebe Howard chose a still life with yellow, orange and plum tones to warm the color palette just enough.

A room like this allows you to wade slowly into deep serenity while enjoying a wonderful day with friends, or just spend a few quiet hours relaxing.

Contemporary Wool Rugs Inspired by 2000 year old Roman Stone Art

Posted by Abid Ilahi on Apr 27, 2011 8:00:00 AM

A few years ago I was struck by the beauty of a 2000 year old Roman stone street. The stones had irregular shapes, rounded corners and were fitted together to form an organic pattern akin to crocodile skin. In a flash I saw the possibility of creating a great contemporary wool rug with irregular silk lines .
