Flea Market Chic: Layering Rugs

Flea Market Chic-Layering Rugs BHG Style Spotters

If you are like me, then your style is constantly evolving. My idea of a fun usually involves moving furniture and accessories around my home for a few hours, yup, I am a house geek. I know what you are thinking, that has to take more than a few hours but not always. I am constantly finding simple & fun ways to refresh my spaces that satisfies my design cravings & prevents a FULL on makeover. My favorite way to give my space a whole new look is by changing up the color palette. One easy way to do this is by layering rugs. If you browse your favorite magazine {BHG} or Pinterest lately, you are bound to find this trend front and center. I will be honest, with any trend it takes me a bit of time to figure out if it’s right for me & this one I like for few reasons. By simply adding another layer of pattern, texture and/or color you can connect it to other accessories and pillows you are bringing into the room. You can find smaller throw rugs easily, for a fraction of the cost, try hitting some local flea markets for a vintage feel or buy one new at a home store to tie it in with your eclectic style. And the last reason I am digging on this trend, there is little risk and commitment, if you decide you don’t like it so much in a few months, you can still use that throw rug in another area of your home. Here are a few ideas to get you inspired by this trend….

Use a colorful palette & pattern over an existing sisal to give you a new color direction and a bold new look for summer. The art and pillows bring out the soft indigo tones in the rug and make the space feel connected.

With this trend you can go big or small, size doesn’t determine style. Having a base rug to anchor the space allows you to play with different sizes.

How about layering a hide over a sisal or wool to give an organic, rustic feel? While I may not be there myself, I love this look in other people’s homes. By layering these natural textures it make the space feel grounded, warm & cozy.

I am typically considered a symmetrical person but lately I am loving things off-centered, you only love once right?! Take a look at my favorite designer gal’s {Emily Henderson} living room and how the rug off-centered, under the 2 chairs looks & feels organically placed.
