Veranda December 2014: 7 Best Holiday Interiors with Decorative Rugs

Veranda’s November-December 2014 issue is full of stunning holiday decor. Here are my picks for the 7 best holiday interiors with decorative rugs.


An antique geometric kilim rug and floral tablecloth create a cozy and festive atmosphere in the dining room of designer Michelle Nussbaumer’s chalet in the Swiss Alps.


Walls covered in moss-green velvet, floral chintz upholstery and a yellow stool pop on a textured white geometric rug creating the atmosphere of a woodland in the living room of a London townhouse designed by Veere Grenney.


A white corner sofa and white geometric rug create a modern vibe in the living room even though it has several traditional pieces.


A red banquette, coral-pattern pillows and a 19th-century Chinese Coromandel screen anchored by a leopard rug create the atmosphere of a Venetian Palazzo in a 1000 square-foot Manhattan penthouse designed by Hutton Wilkinson, a protégé of Tony Duquette.


Walls and sofa covered in emerald-green velvet are anchored by a gold leopard rug creating a jewel-box like atmosphere in the Hutton Wilkinson designed drawing room. The sofa serves as seating for a dining table covered in a blue malachite fabric favored by Tony Duquette.


The ceiling beams are covered in a green malachite-pattern cotton fabric which further reinforces the jewel-box look.


An antique black and white striped Turkish kilim rug complements weathered walls and furniture and adds warmth and character to a newly built upstate New York vacation house designed by Selina van der Geest for her family.
