Question by IGOTDAGIFT: My decorating style is eclectic but now I’m stumped. Is it acceptable to mix a traditional Persian rug.in the living room with a modern (comptemporary) rug in the adjoining dining room?

Best answer:

Answer by scottaadams
Depends on the modern rug. If it was black and white checkerboard, then no, that would look terrible.

If it is one of the mostly solid tan rugs that are very popular now, then it would be acceptable. There are a lot of modern rug designs that are still very classic.

Decorating a Family Room with Area Rugs

Posted: Jan 31, 2011 |Comments: 0

|

If you think that you can only use area rugs in rooms that have hardwood floors, think again. In reality, these versatile rugs can be used just about anywhere – even in carpeted rooms. Rugs add depth and dimension to an interior design scheme, allowing you to create a customized look with ease. Deciding to use rugs is easy; figuring out precisely how to arrange them is a bit trickier. In this article, we’ll take a look at a few tried-and-true tips for using area rugs in a family room or living room.

Always Use Rug Pads

Rug pads keep area rugs in place while keeping wear and tear to an absolute minimum. Many people are under the impression that pads are only needed in rooms that have hardwood floors; that is not true at all. In fact, rug pads can – and should – be used in carpeted and tiled rooms, as well. Every time pressure is applied to an area rug, as in a footstep, friction occurs between the rug and the floor. Over time, that friction can wear through the bottom of a rug. A quality pad absorbs a lot of that pressure; in turn, friction is reduced and wear and tear is prevented.

Measure the Room

Whether you’re planning to use large rugs or small ones, you should always carefully measure a room before moving ahead with your plans. Measure the overall dimensions of the room first. If you’re going to use small rugs to accent a corner of a large room, measure that corner as well. Different measurements will be needed for things like runners, too, since they need to be arranged in narrow spaces. Keep in mind that you should always allow at least five to eight inches of floor space to show around each edge of a rug to achieve an aesthetically pleasing look.

First, Do a Test Run

Nothing is more aggravating than investing in an area rug, only to discover that it doesn’t fit into your living room like you thought it would. Even if you’re meticulous with your measurements, a rug can look a lot different than you’d envisioned when it’s actually laid down on your family room floor. Instead of wasting a lot of time and money, cut out squares of various sizes from a tarp. Arrange them in your family room to see which sizes work the best. When you’re finished, you’ll know the exact measurements of your ideal area rug.

Basic Ideas for Using Area Rugs

The following suggestions should spark some great ideas for decorating a living room or family room with rugs. Keep them in mind as you make your plans in order to achieve the most stylish and attractive results possible.

Coffee Tables – Rugs look great beneath coffee tables. In this case, size is extremely important. A too-small rug will be swallowed up by the coffee table and will fade away into the background; a too-large rug will overpower the coffee table and look awkward. Try to choose a rug that mimics the shape of the coffee table; for instance, choose a rectangular rug for a rectangular table. The edges of the rug should extend out at least eight inches from the feet of the coffee table. This will produce the most eye-catching results.

Sitting Areas – If you’re decorating a large room, you can use an area rug to define a sitting area. Lay down the rug and arrange the sofas and chairs around it. In effect, it will look like a “mini-room” within the larger living room or family room. For added style, select a rug that contrasts nicely with the flooring and furniture.

Sofas and Chairs – When arranging furniture around an area rug, it’s usually best to have the front legs on the rug and the back ones off of it. This produces the most visually stunning effect. Always use furniture pads on the bottoms of your furniture so that it doesn’t wear holes in your rugs – or scrape up your floors. Remember, too, that you can always rearrange your rugs and your furniture from time to time, which is a great way to keep your interior design scheme looking fresh and new.

Whether you opt for one large rug or for an eclectic array of smaller area rugs, you’re sure to love the stylish visual effects that they bring to your living room or family room.

Area Rugs – the Choice is Vast and Yours

Choosing an area rug is quite a challenge considering the vast sizes, shapes, colors, fabrics, and designs. You must consider the purpose the rug will serve whether it will provide a splash of color/design for a small room or a great deal of color/design for a large space. If you’re fortunate enough to be able to start with a blank palette, then you can choose a rug that pleases you and build the room around its colors and designs.

The Black And White Decorating Theme

Edit Article |

Posted: Mar 22, 2007 |Comments: 0

| Views: 3,005 |

Black and white, two simple colors, but what an amazing effect they can have upon the décor of any room. Together, they are dramatic and effectively create a strong impression. You can use the two together, subtly or an in-your-face manner.

Adding just a touch of black to a white-themed room provides a focal point. Everyone will notice immediately and be drawn to the touch of black. It draws the eye to whatever you want seen – that special picture or art object, for example.

A touch of black in a white-themed room, or a touch of white in a black-themed room, can be very dramatic. Place a black rug in a white walled and light furniture room or the converse, and the effect will be, well, dramatic. Add black trim, paint one wall black, use a piece of black furniture or accessorize with black paintings, wall sconces or lighting and see what happens to a pale room.

Black and white, used well together, play off each other’s strengths. The starkness of their placement together creates an elegant and contemporary look. It is fresh and startling, elegant and sophisticated. Black and white can be the perfect color combination.

There are a variety of ways to approach the black and white decorating theme in your home. Start off by considering the floor area. Try changing your floor tiles to a simple “checked” theme of black and white. There are a number of ways to achieve this. Buy and install solid black and solid white tiles in an alternate pattern, buy black tiles with a white border or black tiles bordered by black, or experiment with patterned black and white tiles.

As noted above, hang black-framed or frame black art pieces against a white wall. Combine the two colors within the wall and painting, photograph or print scheme by placing the dark painting or other work, on a white matte surrounded by a black frame and hanging it on a white wall. This will not only highlight the art work and emphasize your walls, but provide a depth to the work so displayed.

In a bedroom or living room, utilize the black white theme in the coverings. Bedspreads, linens, pillows, throw pillows, seat covers and afghans or other coverings can be white or black or both. In any room, the table tops or floor coverings can reflect this decorating theme with class. For romantic or a medieval touch place black metal sconces against a white wall or black candlesticks on a white dresser or table. Both also add a touch of sophistication.

Black and/or white countertops in the kitchen or bathroom can provide a sense of elegance. The use of iron or wicker furniture in black or white in the living room, sunroom or outdoor patio, add a sense of old fashioned grace. Top an iron table with glass. Set upon it white pots holding colourful flowers or black metal containers containing plants of various shades of color. The contrast between the black and white will be heightened by the touch of color.

If you ever want to add drama, elegance and a touch of sophistication to your decorating consider working in the two starkest colors of all – black and white.

Article Source: – Decorating Your Home With Hand Loom Rugs

The appearance and touch of handloom rugs are indeed unique and best suited to decorate homes. When you decide to buy a hand knotted rug, you must bear in mind a few things that impact the value of the rug. The quality of wool is critically important as it adds shine to the rugs.  Rugs made of wool have become increasingly popular for two reasons – they last longer and are able to withstand relatively rough usage.

The weaving process is central to the quality of the rug. The number of knots per square inch is pertinent in determining the quality of the rug. If the knot count is more, then the weave becomes more closely knit but the cost also accordingly goes up. Some of the superior quality rugs have from 400 to 700 knots per square inch whereas most commonplace rugs have on an average 90 to 250 knots per square inch. From these figures, you might as well visualize hoe time-consuming and tedious it is to handcraft these fabulous looking rugs.

The rug is first subjected to a chemical wash and is then rinsed with water to give the rug a thorough cleaning. The chemical wash helps to soften the yarn and provide the rug with a silky feel. The rug is then exposed to the sun to dry. Hand-Woven rugs are usually made by artisans in rural areas. The handloom process will obviously mean two rugs may not be identical and each rug will have some slight variation. All finished handloom rugs are subject to total quality control to ensure durability. These are heavy weight rugs that spread perfectly flat on the floor and will not curl or bunch up like other rugs. Several handloom rugs are also reversible and they have the same high quality and color on both sides. There are a wide range of yoga rugs available in the market and these rugs have enough padding to provide a soft touch and comfortable feeling. They come in different colors and sizes as per the customer’s requirements. Specifically designed, these yoga rugs have absorbent surface and are easily washable.

If you are really a lover of rugs, you will surely appreciate rugs that have a unique blending of traditional designs and with the contemporary tastes that match the different home décor. When you visit a handloom rug dealer, you will be amazed at the collection of rugs that are colorful, in a variety of designs and so appealing to suit various interiors of homes. These rugs are made from cotton or wool and are a perfect mix of aesthetics and utility.

It is indeed unfortunate that the handloom rug making units are under threat of closure as they are encountering stiff competition globally from power loom units. Especially in developing countries, suicides and starvation deaths of handloom workers are being increasingly reported due to unemployment. As a matter of fact, handloom rugs and carpets is an age-old profession practiced by village artisans. Initially the rugs were made out of animal skin to protect men from weather and provide comfort. In subsequent centuries, the rug became a status symbol in most homes. Having at least one handloom rug in one’s home was deemed an asset and hallmark of one’s standing in society.  Extending hospitality to guests was by laying   a red rug to walk on and gifting the best-woven rug.

Decorating Your Home with Antique Rugs & Carpets

October 20, 2010 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Antiques Rugs 


Antiques rugs
by CarpetView

Decorating Your Home with Antique Rugs & CarpetsDecorating your home may seem like an overwhelming task at times, but knowing where to start is key to transforming your living space into a home that makes you smile whenever you walk in. If you ask any of the top designers where they start when planning a room, they’ll tell you that the floor covering will determine the decor of the space. This is because the rug or carpet is often the most expensive item in the room and it is easier to match the other elements of the room to the rug rather than vice versa.

Nowadays designers are rediscovering antique rugs as a method to decorate interiors. Interior decorators find that the colors, the patina, and the charm of antique rugs & carpets far supersede what is available in the commercial market and that antique rugs are always truly unique and one-of-a-kind. In simple terms, antique rugs are the perfect way to set your home apart from the commercialness of mass-produced decor.

So what is an antique rug and why are they perfect decorating tools? The term antique simply means that the rug is at least 80 years old. Like most anything else rugs that were woven to meet the highest standards when they were made are constructed to stand the test of time. Not only will they be useable (granted they were kept in good condition by the owner — naturally most things of high quality are purchased by people who care about the item so many antique rugs are still in great condition today) but they also transform during their lifetime: the dyes will often take on different hues and become more subdued and beautiful over time. One such occurance of this is called an abrash which is a line or multiple lines in the rug that seem to be a different color. This happens when the weaver uses different batches of wool when weaving a single carpet and is often seen in tribal and nomadic rugs since the weaver may have to weave small amounts at a time as materials become available.

Now that you have established the reasons for decorating with antique rugs you may be wondering what kind of rug to choose and how to go about finding an antique rug. If you are using an interior designer to help you decorate, you want to make sure that that person is familiar with antique rugs and knows a good source for antique carpets. If you are decorating by yourself make sure you can find a good dealer you can trust. A good dealer will not only have a large enough selection for you to find the piece you want, but will also make sure you are 100% satisfied with your purchase from them — they will offer to have you see the rugs on approval meaning letting you keep the rug at your home so that you can see how it looks in the space. They will also take rugs in on trade so that if you decide to upgrade the rug you buy from them or are moving and would like to trade-in a rug for a new space, the dealer will take the rug back for credit towards something else. Most of all you have to feel comfortable purchasing the piece at a price you think is fair.

Antique rugs are so versatile in their designs and colors that you are sure to find the perfect piece for your home. If you are looking for a piece to match the decor you already have established it is best to ask the dealer or designer you are working with to put together a selection for you that you think will work based on the size, colors, and design of your room. Otherwise if you are just starting to design your home, choosing the right rug to set the tone of the room will make further decorating much easier. Either way, antique rugs and carpets are the perfect choice when designing the interior of your home.

A New York antique rug dealer since 1980, Nazmiyal has a highly specialized and user-friendly website with an extensive inventory of antique pieces of every type, size, and style. An inventory of this range and quality is based on years of experience and effort in searching out the best pieces from sources all over the world.

Nazmiyal is also a natural magnet that constantly attracts those interested in selling rugs. Even within the bustling New York rug market with its international contacts, Nazmiyal provides a major focal point or nexus, all of which is at the disposal of Nazmiyal’s clients, whether they are dealers, interior designers, or private retail customers. If you want an Oriental carpet, New York is the place to be, and within New York itself, the place to be is Nazmiyal.
