Add luxury to your home with the right decor
Rugs and carpets are not just other interior design accessories but are the must-haves that you shouldn’t compromise with. They give a room, a vibrant and warm touch. Interior designer Samira Chopra shares some tips that will help in achieving a luxurious look at home with rugs and carpets:
Dress up the wall: There is no universal rule that rugs and carpets are only meant for floors. You can deck up the walls by using rugs as wall hangings. It's a great way to add visual interest, and protects them from possible wear and tear in the areas of heavy traffic.
Layering: Don’t worry if you can only afford a small coloured and patterned rug, it can still do wonders. All you have to do is layer it over a larger neutral mat in a contemporary shade. Mixing up patterns with plains and flat weaves with stubby textures create an eclectic style statement to your place.
contrast: If you are planning for heavily patterned wallpaper or upholstery, then it would be better to keep your rug subdued. And, if you are opting for a busily patterned rug then keep minimal ornamentation on your furniture and walls. This contrast will resist overcrowding and will maintain a non-chaotic feel in the house.
Placement: Rugs and carpets don't have to be situated just in your living areas. They can complement any room, from your bedroom to bathroom and even the hallways of your house.
