One of my favorite ways to breathe life into a room is not with paint but with a beautifully colored or patterned rug. They can easily be moved from room to room and require much less commitment than paint. These are my favorite picks for ones that will freshen up your home and surely add a spring to your step...
(denim carpet by Madeline Weinrib, cotton dhurrie from Serena + Lily, Udaipur Orange by the Rug Company Diamond Khaki indoor/outdoor rug from Dash & Albert)
(Vis-a-vis rug from Calypso, Ziggy rug from Patterson, Flynn and Martin, Jali rug from the Rug Company and Cameron stripe flat weave from Ralph Lauren)
