Shares her design of a brownstone in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.

The cream rug used in the central seating area was sourced via Perfect Rug. It is a 9' x 11' Madison in Alabaster with a Serged Border in Off-White.

How did you discover The Perfect Rug?

I discovered the service by sourcing options online, and the combination of quality and value worked perfectly for this project.

What inspired the color?

The deep red rugs in the same room are all from the client's collection and I used them in a layered way. That said, I brought in the neutral rug for the central seating area to differentiate it from the rest of the space. I also felt the bold blue and yellow in the upholstery, and the red in the artwork would really shine against a lighter background. The element that helps to tie all of the rugs together is a repeating diamond pattern - from the large diamonds of the entry rug to the subtle, small scale diamond repeat in the cream rug.

What do the clients say about it?

They love how the rug lightens and brightens the space and allows the bold colors to pop.

How to choose the perfect size bedroom rug

April 19th, 2016

Many people feel challenged when trying to determine the perfect size rug for your bedroom. Well it is much easier than you think with these helpful tips! And ordering a custom size is the perfect solution.

Frame Your Bed

The area rug should extend 36" or so all around the bed. An alternative solution is to just have it extend on the sides leaving the foot of the bed on the floor, this is a good alternative if you space is smaller.

Runners all around

You can easily place a runner on each side of the bed, the runners length should match the length of the bed, but don't forget to keep in mind bedside tables. The runner should stop about 3" before the tables. This is a great alternative if you want to showcase hardwood floors, but still enjoy the cozy warmth of stepping out of bed onto a rug.

Texture + Color

Texture is often overlooked when choosing a rug. Mixing different textures can add personality and warmth to an otherwise empty space.

The Greenhouse - Bringing the Natural Elements Indoors

March 18th, 2015

The iconic martinique wallpaper has always been a favorite of mine, this classic banana leaf design first appeared at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 1942. Ideal in an entryway, breakfast nook, or powder room. It pairs perfectly with the taj jute rug which is available in any custom size. To modernize the space the geometric Chen Williams planter is spot on!
