The Laidback Life: The Homebody’s Rugs

For instance, a woolen rug incorporated with thick pile gives the most comfort for your feet, and it’s also great if you like running around your house all day. A Moroccan hand-knotted woolen rug is one excellent example. It’s soft, large, and has the combination of neutral tones in a simple diamond pattern that works just about anywhere in your house.

From Rags to Riches: The Socialite’s Rug

Socialites love to throw parties, and throwing parties is not only hard for the host, but it’s also threatening for interiors too. If you accept guest on your house on a frequent basis, be sure to select a rug that’s easy to clean and will stand up to constant footfall.

Most flat-woven rugs are reversible too, which means that if there’s a stain on one side, you can just turn it over and use the other side.

Flat-woven rugs come from cotton or a cotton and wool blend which make them thinner and lighter than woolen rugs, so it won’t require much effort to roll it up and store it under a bed or sofa during the party.

The well-worn look and well-loved feel of an antique rug are the sources of it its charm which suggests a friendly and welcoming house. A faded or aged floral print rug is an elegant and timeless piece that always work well with any country home dining or sitting room. However, if florals are out of your choice, you can go for a Turkish-inspired rug in muted colors which bring the same subtle warmth to your decor scheme.
