My friend Julie has been all over the world and her home’s sense of style shows it. Her travels to the Far East have yielded a design sense that embraces quirk – some handmade oriental rugs adorn the floor while adorable cat figurines sit nestled next to antique books and Klimt prints – yet remains elegant and cozy at the same time. It’s an atmosphere I never want to leave and just being there makes you feel like you’ve been transported to someplace unique.
If you’re like most people, you spend the majority of your post-work hours in one of two places: your kitchen or your living room. While the kitchen’s a great place to hang out, nothing beats kicking back on the couch reading your favorite book or getting lost in a movie. And since the living room is such a popular place to congregate, it often falls into a style dead zone.
Looking for a quick and inexpensive way to update your home’s décor? Why not try adding a bit of pattern to your walls, floor, and window treatments?

Believe it or not, you might be able to achieve this with some simple, affordable rugs.
When you purchase rugs, you will find that there are four common concerns that many home owners have. This is especially true if the ones that you have purchased were a large investment. Let’s take a look at the four most common concerns about these floor coverings.
If you have an office where clients visit you, you may want to consider how rugs can actually make your business more credible. Drab offices that are not well decorated – or offices that appear to be decorated cheaply – do not make a good impression on your current or potential clients.
Rugs have been with us for centuries. Because of this, they have actually become an intricate part of our histories, and this is something that everybody ought to know about them. At one time had more than an aesthetic purpose.
