Rugs are one of my favourite elements in a room. They add wonderful texture, colour, warmth, and often stand alone as pieces of art! I've broken down some of my favourite rug trends and selected some amazing pieces so that you can get the look!

1. Traditional Rugs in Modern Spaces.
I'm not usually one for traditional style but I have been really drawn to this look lately! There's a fine line between drab and fab here so take a look at my selections below for inspiration. I think the key here is selecting a pure and vibrant colour palette and a large scale pattern. It's sort of like selecting art; you either feel it or you don't.
2. Shaggy Rugs
Shaggy rugs add a lovely texture to any room. They feel great on the feet and can make a cold room cozy again.
3. Rugs with Tassels
Tassels are fun! They add a certain playfulness as well as great texture. Get the relaxed vibe with tassel rugs!
To say I'm a huge fan of sheepskins would be an understatement. They are the coziest most versatile rugs around! Throw them on a chair, bench or floor.....black white or grey...there are so many great options!
5. Reindeer Hides
Being the Scandinavian style lover that I am, reindeer hides have caught my attention! Similar to the versatility of a sheepskin, reindeer hides can be used in so many ways and are absolutely gorgeous! As is the case with all hides, be sure to get them from an ethical provider!
Cowhides add a really interesting look to a room. Their imperfect shape and unique patterns make them a one of a kind piece of art. I love the natural texture and colour palettes they bring. Their styling is versatile from western industrial to ultra modern chic!
6. Layering Rugs
Take all of the above styles and combine them! Layering rugs is the latest look and I think it's pretty great! Almost anything goes in terms of combinations but be sure to choose a complimentary colour palette!
