Have you ever looked at a gorgeous room in a magazine
that just made you feel like you wanted to walk right into it
and curl up on the sofa?

Have you ever though about just what is it about that room
that speaks to you when you see it?
Is it the style of the room or the furniture that you notice?
Or the architectural details or maybe the colors that the designer has brought into play?
I have noticed that for me, most of the rooms that I am drawn to the most
have layer upon layer of texture and pattern.

Starting with the rug on the floor
to the fabrics, colors and finish on the furniture
to the accent pillows
and the artwork and ornamentation on the walls.
Mingling together- each of the patterns play a part in the room and how it feels
and you can change the look entirely if something is missing.
Whether they are more bold, colorful and eye catching
or subtle, soft and inviting - layers of texture and pattern in a room are like wearing
a soft cashmere sweater with your favorite jeans and a strand of pearls.
If you chose just one of those elements to wear
and left the others at home
the outfit just wouldn't feel the same.

This room by Traci Zeller is amazing.
I love the color of the wall paper to the soft subtle yellow on the ceiling
to the mix of patterns and crisp white bedding.
I also love that gorgeous rug.
It has a perfect amount of eye catching detail without overwhelming.
It compliments the room perfectly and without that detail and pattern underfoot
something is missing.

It's still a beautiful room but that warmth is toned down a bit.

Of course, some rugs are a little more bold and beautiful
and are definitely a show stopper when you see them in play.
I love the fun touch this colorful rug brings.

and yes, you guessed it,
it definitely wouldn't feel like the same room without it.
traditional patterns and colors are always favorites of mine and they fit perfectly in any style room.
The Bogart is definitely a favorite pattern.
This room is bursting with texture and pattern
The brick wall, the worn floor, the chunky legs on the weathered table
and that gorgeous rug underfoot that makes the room and is the perfect finishing touch.
Whether your taste and style leans more sparse and clean
and modern and you choose a rich, saturated color for your space

Or something that has quiet color and pattern that adds character and charm

Choosing the right rug is key to making your room feel finished.
Think of a rug as another layer of color, pattern, texture
and whether you go with something that pops
or something that blends seamlessly

Adding the perfect rug for your room and lifestyle
is like putting the finishing touch on a painting
or adding jewelry with your little black dress

It simply makes all the difference.
