The January and February 2016 issues of Elle Decor and Veranda felt rather dull- too many gray rooms, so in desperation I turned to Pinterest to see which interiors were getting the most love from pinners. Wow! what a revelation this was. Pinners love colorful rooms far more than magazine editors give them credit for. Here are the 7 most pinned interiors with designer rugs in 2015 from Elle Decor. Next week I plan to track down Veranda’s most pinned interiors of 2015.
Artworks by Odilon Redon, Édouard Manet, and Whitney Bedford create pops of color on white walls and echo the cream, pink and purple contemporary designer rug in the breakfast room of actress Megan Mullally’s Hollywood home designed by Ames Ingham.
A white and black striped rug anchors two black Chesterfield sofas. Copper, brown, and mahogany accent pieces pop against white walls and a white lacquered coffered ceiling creates a luminous atmosphere in a Beverley Hills living room designed by Melinda Ritz.
A blue and white designer rug pops against a black lacquered floor and contrast with a brass staircase and green paneled walls in the Kelly Wearstler designed library in a house on Mercer Island, Washington.
An orange-red, yellow and blue Kazak style rug complements two vintage Italian chairs upholstered in orange velvet and an aqua, yellow and orange painting by Virginia Wylie in the Southampton sitting room of Elle Decor contributing editor at large Cynthia Frank.
A white designer rug provides an elegant backdrop for a custom made sofa upholstered in gold velvet, contemporary coffee table, bronze chair, a massive custom light fixture and a painting by Ryan McGinness in the living room of a Manhattan townhouse renovated by architects Leroy Street Studio and interior designer James Aman.
A gray-blue designer rug anchors a blue mid-century modern sofa and red and yellow accent pieces and modern artworks in the Manhattan living room of model Tamzin Greenhill.
A natural fiber rug contrasts with polished dark wood floors and complements orange hand embroidered Mexican bed coverlet, teak bench, red chair and oak and parchment chest of drawers in the master bedroom of a 22,000 square foot ocean front family retreat in the Dominican Republic designed by Juan Montoya.
A black and white Moroccan designer rug anchors a white coffee table, white sofa, cream daybed, black and white plaid upholstered vintage armchairs, and Richard Serra prints. White lacquered ceiling adds a glow and black and dark brown accent pieces provide contrast to the stunning Madrid living room of artist and interior designer Luis Bustamante.
