Ground spice

Space-defin­ing area rugs that weave colour­ful tales of far­away lands, ex­otic ma­te­ri­als and an­cient cul­tures.

IN­TE­RIOR DE­SIGNER Yas­mine Ghoniem of Amber Road (pic­tured with Belle in­te­rior de­sign editor Lucy Mccabe) says rugs are an im­por­tant ad­di­tion to a scheme. “Rugs in­ject colour, tex­ture, scream per­son­al­ity while help­ing to de­lin­eate zones in open-plan ar­range­ments. It’s my favourite last el­e­ment to source, be­cause it knits a scheme to­gether so well.” Her tips for se­lect­ing a rug? “Go loud and proud! More neu­tral in­te­ri­ors suit a flam­boy­ant area rug, and vice-versa. Your feet will touch it ev­ery day, so splash out. One of the best ways to en­joy a par­tic­u­lar cul­ture is through its tex­tiles. Hand­made is bet­ter. The knot­tier, shag­gier and more un­re­fined, the more I fall in love.” am­ber­road­de­sign.com.au
