These include three stunning rooms by Miles Redd in an updated 1901 Victorian house in New Jersey, a luxurious Park Avenue apartment rendered in pale whites and grays by Thomas Pheasant, a classic Atlanta house updated by architect Yong Park and interior designer Melanie Turner. Finally, architect D. Stanley Dixon and interior designer Carolyn Malone evoke the peacefulness of a rustic English country house in a newly built home in Atlanta.

4 Tips for Designing Glamorous Rooms with Pastel Rugs

Posted by Caroline Bell on May 22, 2013 4:55:00 PM

A pale pink Savonnerie rug, bordered by gold latticework and boasting gold medallion motifs, laced through with light blue and sunset gold and filling a room with a rosy glow at the first glance of dawn; a light, golden needlepoint rug strewn through with faded ochre and ancient pale blues, flooding a room with radiant warmth in the middle of a rainy afternoon: the all-encompassing beauty of pastel rugs cannot be overstated. Hues like faded pinks, pale greens, soft yellows, warm ivories and light blues are predominant in a pastel color palette. The beauty of pastel rugs is that they become even more beautiful with age, gracing a room with a sure and graceful presence.
