Style Element : Rugs

We usually have rugs of various sizes, colors and styles around the house. Sometimes we see 'the perfect rug'  in the store that we fall in love with...but don't know which room or where it would look good.
Well then, its time to look the walls...not down at the floor !

Rugs on the wall add a whole new layer and dimension to the style of the room. Hanging rugs on the walls bring in color, texture, pattern and visual interest to the room. I feel it adds a touch of warmth & coziness to the space...especially good in the cold Fall and Winter seasons. 

There are so many positives to styling your room with rugs not only on the floor but also on the walls. It's easy to move them around from room to room , switch them for new ones when you need a change of scene. You can hang a dari ( a small mat / rug ) to add a splash of color or hang a large area-rug to add a subtle backdrop that covers the entire wall ! It's a fantastic replacement to paintings and wall paper.

Here are a few ideas that you can be inspired from to use rugs on the walls :

A punch of blue to the otherwise neutral toned room

A bold style statement !
A bold yellow with a simple pattern to brighten up the entryway !

A layer of pattern and subtle color to the traditional room
A beautiful substitute for a spot that would be traditionally claimed by a painting or photographs !
A huge punch of color to the contemporary monotone room !
Brilliant use of a hide rug in this eclectic bedroom !

A subtle backdrop in the same tones, adding pattern !
A beautiful alternative to the headboard !
Adding a layer of texture to the simple style of the room.

I love the way that these rugs add so much color & texture and also enhance the style of the room. 
So go ahead and get that perfect rug home..and bring in drama & color to your space with it on the wall. 

Happy Styling !
