Modern Rugs, Runners and Doormats: On-Trend Textiles
Refresh your aesthetic with a rug that suits your style. Looking to make a statement in the living room or master suite? Go big with an area rug. Shag ones fit a glam vibe and add cozy texture underfoot, while dhurrie brings a boho feel. Or, keep it minimalist with a low pile rug in a subtle design. Can't pick just one? We feel that. Layer a couple different styles for dimension. We love the look of a high pile rug on top of a jute one or a couple patterns artfully placed on top of each other. No matter which rugs call your name, just make sure it fits your space—5'x'8', 8'x'10 and 10'x12' ones included.
If your hallway needs a pick-me-up, consider adding a runner into the mix. Carry the aesthetic of one room into the next by choosing colors that complement the area rug, or shake things up with an unexpected element—think animal prints, hand-cut textures or bright pops of color. Either way, thread the color palette throughout the area. If it's going in the entryway, a vase with faux flowers that play up the textile creates cohesion. In the dining room? Add placemats or napkins in similar shades. No matter where it goes, be sure to use a rug pad to keep the modern runner exactly where you want it.
Treat yourself to a spa-like experience in the ensuite with a bath mat that suits your aesthetic. Teak in either natural or white finishes gives you a luxe surface to dry off on while you step out of the shower. Prefer a plush feel? Find a bath rug or runner in absorbent cotton: even better if it's machine-washable. After you've picked it out, be sure the hand towels, bath sheets and washcloths tie it all together
Friends coming over? Set the right tone before they step inside with a unique doormat. Not your typical welcome mat, find styles that perform double duty: establishing your aesthetic while keeping mud and dirt outside. Whether you like chic stripes or low-key solids, this low-maintenance staple is easy to clean. Just hose it off to keep it looking its best.
