One way to save money long term on the design of your home is to stick to solid colors for your high ticket items like sofas and upholstered chairs. This way you aren't faced with dated looking patterns when styles change. But let's face it, all solids and no pattern makes for a very dull room. That's where a great statement rug can make all the difference.
As you scroll down, notice how most large pieces in these spaces are fairly basic, but the rooms all have a modern, fresh feel because of the bold patterns you see in the form of a rug. Imagine if the rugs were removed, would the rooms have the same appeal?
Before adding a bold rug from West Elm to my guest room the first thing you noticed was the boring white walls.
