How To Choose An Area Rug For The Living Room

Having an area rug in the living room transforms the space. It adds comfort and style and also creates a distinguished look.

When selecting a Living room area rug keep in mind a few factors like the layout of the furniture and their colors and also the traffic pattern. Apart from these, you should also consider your lifestyle and the general decor of the room.

Add style to your living room with an area rug

Selecting area rug for the living is not an easy task as a trip to the market would reveal. With so many choices in materials and shapes and designs, you are bound to get confused. However, if you can decide on the floor plan of the living room the task becomes simpler.


If the sofa is set against the wall, you need a big area rug that would cover the space in between and also fit under the front legs of the sofa and chairs.


On the other hand, if the sofa is set in the middle, you need a much larger rug to cover the living area.


Modern home decors use rugs in an innovative way. You may place several small rugs in the living room thus breaking the monotony of space and also adding pop of colors to the living room decor.


The area rug should gel with the color palette of the living room. If the sofa and the table are of solid colors, go for a patterned rug. The secondary color of the rug should coordinate with the color of the key furniture pieces like the sofa or drapes. Similarly, if your living room already showcases a lot of colors on the wall, drapery and the furniture, choose a neutral colored rug to achieve harmony.


There is a large selection of modern area rugs in animal prints available today that can make a living room look outstanding. A living room which has beige, coffee or brown as the dominating color, will look wonderful with a zebra printed area rug.

While choosing rugs, pay attention to the traffic the room receives. Wool and natural fibers like sisal, jute and sea grass add a soft touch to the decor. Rugs made from these materials are sturdy and can withstand heavy foot traffic.


Take a look at Loloi area rugs for your living room a beautiful choice considering their collection and variety. A handmade Oriental rug is perhaps what you are looking for in a living room area rug to make your home stand apart and make every guest appreciate your choice.

Create A Cozy Home Decorating With Fall Colors And Textures

Get Cozy This Fall With The Season’s Colors and Textures

Ever since I finished school, Fall has been my favorite time of the year. During my childhood years of course I didn’t want to go back to school, and the shorter days were very depressing. As I grew older, wiser, and more sophisticated I fell in love with Fall. The change in the season, the way light reflects differently, the beautiful fall landscape is so romantic, so rich in color, and the colder climate is welcoming after the summer heat.

Fall 2013 color is Mykonos Blue, and we can see plenty of it in fashion as well as home decor.  Soft, silky velvets in beautiful jewel tones. 

100213_2030_Getcozythis1.jpg

Mykonos blue is just the right color to compliment the warm oranges and reds of the changing leaves on the trees. Like these rugs by Surya available at Carmel Decor

We also love the 2013 color of the year Emerald Green, another warm rich sexy hue inspired by natures color palette.

Gold & bronze, warm metals that glitter and gleam, like the sun as it reflects on the changing colors of the trees. These golden colors are the perfect accent to the saturated colors of fall.

Use gold tones in accessories, the little sparkle adds warmth to the fall ambiance.

There are so many different ways to celebrate the Autumn months, and welcome the change with colors and textures all inspired by nature.
Remember shorter days mean longer nights by candle light.

However you celebrate Autumn, I hope you have been inspired.

You can find beautiful mirrors, poufs and ottomans, decorative pillows,
wall decor, area rugs and home accents  to help you bring some self reflection into your home at Carmel Decor.

How to Create a Nautical Inspired Decor

The month of August is when I like to take Fridays off from work and go to the beach. I take the kids, a lovely basket, and a good book and just sit for most of the day on the sand under an umbrella and enjoy the scenery. I so love the beach. Even if you live nowhere near the ocean you can bring the shore to your home with a few of these design tips and accessories. There are certainly lots of nautical inspired home furnishings and accessories out there.

With a few key ingredients, like a classic palette of blue and white, accents in red, some rope, and shinny hardware it’s easy to bring the casual, relaxed smell and sights of summer at the shore to your home.

Make sure to use blue and white colors and fabrics made from natural materials like cotton and linen for a light and breezy ambiance.

Don’t be afraid to mix stripes, patterns and solids. They ad interest and movement to the space

Little boys and girls love to sail the seven seas.

These nautical inspired lamps are perfect and so chic

Throw pillows are the easiest and most inexpensive way to bring the sea indoors.

I hope this has inspired you.  Do you have any ideas to share?  We would love to hear from you.

You can find beautiful decorative pillows, wall decor, area rugs and home accents  to help you bring the sea into your home at Carmel Decor.
