ode to the favorite rugs!

Monday, August 29, 2011

I sometimes dream of waking up at a far away flea market. My dream is hazy, and I am surrounded in a dusty land with treasures abound! Kind of like this...

I know often times it can be overwhelming to think of incorporating that new member to the family... the rug. It says so much, it takes up space, often times having it's own room...it's needless to say... a commitment! This core hotspot can add so much to a space, and doesn't always have to break the bank. Working with bright & bold colors in my furniture line, I want to show how they can play in a space smashingly!
so let's start with this ... i think it pretty much sets the stage for where I am going with my obsession for vintage rugs & textiles. ha!

I could stare at this photo of stacked rugs forever, print it out and frame it as art, i love the colors, the warmth, the history. I am always on the hunt for vintage fabrics...here is an example of one I transformed with a similar textile:

okay so back to rugs...

i love that rugs, books, and art can be the pop a space needs! This rug below says it all, and makes the space!

This pic below shows you that you can mix and match patterns, and still have a crisp fresh look! Many times when working with clients on the hunt for a rug the idea of one that has patterns or colors can be intimidating. When you break through that fear, beautiful things can happen. Of course too much of anything can be an over kill, but again, I love how this pic proves us wrong!

All and all, rugs can help ground a room and make a statement! We can help transform a space for you here at Mignonne! With a design team ready to help, we can help jumpstart that design project you've been putting off, it can be as simple as helping find a new rug... ha!
