Trieste Jute Rug

Trieste Jute Rug

After quite a bit of research, I realized that Jute would be my softest option and have the look I wanted. I looked all over the web and at a few stores, and it was a bit of a challenge to find something that fit all the descriptors.

Finally, I found this rug at NaturalAreaRugs.com. It came in just the right size, was just the look I was going for, and with the $50 off coupon code they were running, it came in at $119 with free shipping. The perfect price! I also read great things about the expediency and quality from Natural Area Rugs. So I took the plunge and pressed the button.

And in just a few days, I unrolled our rug, and it was love! The perfect way to warm up the space just in time for the cooler months.

Incorporating different style rugs into interior design

Whether it is placed on hardwood flooring, laminate, carpet, or cork, an area rug can really change the feel of a room, instantly adding coziness, warmth, depth, and texture to a living space. A bold, bright rug can help to liven up a plain room decorated in neutral shades, while a simple, pale rug can work to tone down a room buzzing with color and drama.

Interior designers often use rugs to provide natural borders as well as links between different sections of a room, defining seating areas in large, open-plan kitchen living rooms, for example.

Rugs also have a practical purpose: They help prevent carpet wear and tear in a busy living room where the constant tread of many feet can take its toll.

What type, color and size of rug are best for a room depends not only on the size of the space but also on the dominating interior design style. For example, a shabby chic look, with a vintage country vibe, reclaimed wooden furniture and pretty floral cushions can be completed with a lightly patterned rug in muted shades.

With area rugs available in so many different styles and textures, a bright, contemporary design can help to liven up a modern minimalist look in much the same way as an abstract painting, while playful, quirky designs are ideal, not only for the children’s bedroom but also for those wishing for a look that is bold and unique.

Natural Fiber Rugs come in a wide variety of textures: They can be smooth, rough, woven, flat, or deep-pile. When choosing which texture to go for, consider the flooring it will be placed upon. The rule of opposites creates a greater level of interest: Pair patterned rugs with plain floors, black with white, textured rugs with flat surfaces, etc.

The color and pattern of a rug ought to tie in with the other colors and styles in the room, but whether you opt for low-key tones that will allow the rug to blend in easily or a contrasting, striking color that will make the rug the focal point of the room all depends on the desired effect.

Selecting a bright block of color in a rug can create pleasing contrasts in tone, while a plain rug can help to tone down a bold feature wall or heavily patterned furnishings. Bright colors make any space appear larger and help create a warm, cozy environment, especially during the cold winter months.

Also essential to consider when buying a new rug is the furniture. For example, a bedroom filled with knotty, grainy pine furniture can look even more warm and cozy with a plush, deep pile rug to step onto first thing in the morning.

In the living room, the color and texture of the sofa and its cushions and throws should be matched and complemented in the rug. Even with an intricate pattern, the overall effect remains unified.

When placing an area rug in a room dominated by a chaise sofa, avoid adding too much additional bulkiness to an already full room. In a room with hardwood flooring, position the rug partially underneath the sofa to define a distinct seating area.
