When first published yesterday, this post was focused entirely on Architectural Digest; however, I learned today that Conde Nast policy limits a blog post to 5 of their images. With sincere apologies to Architectural Digest and my readers, I have replaced several of the images in this post with great new selections from the July issues of Elle Decor, Traditional Home, House Beautiful and Veranda. Here are my picks for the14 best interiors with decorative rugs plus gorgeous gardens, pools, porches and nature views from these leading design magazines.
