Artisan Rugs: A Quick and Easy Refresh for Your Space


By Ushi Patel



When designing your space, it’s sometimes hard or overwhelming to know where to start. I recommend establishing a foundation to spark the creativity. Choose one element and then build your design story around it. A rug is a great place to start because of its power and prominence in the space – it pulls focus and grounds the room.

Rugs add character and depth. They are also an easy, non-disruptive way to change up a room without spending a bunch on of money and losing your sanity on a renovation. Interior design operates on trends, so if white cabinets, French marble and brushed gold hit the scene, you’ll start to see it in a lot of homes.

A rug can make all the difference by adding a touch of you to the space. Plus you can change the rug seasonally to add variety to your world.

These designers have done just that, weaving a beautiful and rich story with their placement and choice of rugs. Have some fun designing and see how you can transform your space into something you love and adore – something that reflects who you are.


The Modern Alchemist

Try nomadic patterns with modern fixtures and streamlined cabinets. The contrast is interesting and warming, begging a conversation (and hides spaghetti sauce).
