Decorating with Layered Rugs

One of my favorite looks as of late is layering with rugs. Similar to a sweater over a t-shirt, layering a rug over another rug or carpet brings depth, scale, and unique interest to a space.

My office + family room {see more here}

An eclectic mix of function + color + depth.

The last time I shared this space, the hide rug was the only decorative floor covering in the space on top of the wood.  It was pretty, but the room swallowed it up.  It got lost with everything else going on.  It was too small for the overall scale of the room.  By layering the sisal rug underneath which I got from Natural Area Rugs, the space finally feels grounded.  It looks complete.  The hide is still the focal point of the floor, but the layered sisal rug with midnight blue border underneath provides the appropriate scale for the room.

Meaghan Gizuk recently blogged and raved about our Custom Sisal Runners for her stair. Read her story below.

 

“A sisal stair runner story”

When we moved into our home the main stairs in our home were a huge selling feature and a huge source of grief. I did NOT love the oak hand railing and the massive amounts of oak throughout the house. We have since banished the hand railings with lots and lots of white paint and hand cramps.
The original stair runner was yucky. I realize that makes me sound like a second grader but it was so yucky like kooties. And they were not wiping off. We changed the runner to a cheapo striped style from Home Depot because it was a new house for us and we had bigger fish to fry at the time. The tails in our home, specifically Oliver and Sammy [the cats] love to use our staircase as the Nascar sprint qualifying. At approximately 9pm each night like clockwork for 45 minutes it sounds like it is thundering outside because they are hammering each other up and down the stairs. Needless to say, the cheapo striped runner did not exceed expectations.
I began the hunt for a new stair runner. I went to all the carpet and flooring places in our area, inquiring about a jute/sisal stair runner and had every MAN in those stores tell me I could not put jute or sisal on stairs.

My Staircase is Finished!
