… layer your rugs?
Pattern-mixing is a surefire way to bring personality and character to any space, but most of us stop with the obvious elements: mixing patterned throw pillows, upholstered textures and artwork. Why not take it a step further and layer two patterned rugs for a unique, eclectic look?
Not only do layered rugs feel casual and inspired, but it’s a smart way to double the surface area you’d like to cover without having to spend a fortune on a massive area rug. Better yet? By layering two rugs on top of one another, you can experience the joys of sound-deadening in loud playrooms or busy entryways.
A good rule of thumb when layering rugs is to pay attention to pattern scale and color scheme so you can avoid competing designs that can overwhelm the space. Other than that, the sky (or rather, ground?) is the limit!
