We’ve hand-picked the five best rooms with designer rugs from the November edition of Architectural Digest. See a Brazilian home by designer Alberto Pinto, Meg Ryan’s New York loft and a Gothic revival house in the English countryside.
1. English Master Bedroom
Dorset is a county in South West England where Anthony Coote Sykes and his wife, Harriet built a magnificent Gothic house. The master bedroom is dressed with rose-pattern chintz. Even the floral Aubusson rug they selected doesn’t overwhelm the room.
2. English Living Room
We continue in Anthony Coote Sykes and his wife, Harriet’s living room. More floral chintz is on display, but this time a sophisticated blue and white trellis rug is used.
3. New York Front Hall
In the front hall of Meg Ryan’s New York loft, you can see she selected a warm and cozy blue and brown striped flat weave rug. The rug’s earthy tones play well with the custom wooden side bench and cream floral wall coverings.
4. Brazillian Entry Hall
In the entry hall of this historic house in the Brazillian town of Paraty, famous South American designer Alberto Pinto used a Spanish rug with colors of green, gold and black to contrast the blues seen in the antique ceramic platters and plates.
5. Brazillian Entry Hall
In another view of the entry way designed by Alberto Pinto you can see the contrast of the Spanish rug even more with the blue staircase and checkered red and white bench.
