Designing From the Ground Up (Win A $1000 Kalaty Rug!)

I’ve been on a little bit of a home design dry spell lately.  I’ve been so focused on the holidays,  kids' activities, and all my volunteer duties, that all the room makeovers I had planned have been put on the back burner.  It isn't that I don't want to be painting and building and installing new spaces, it is that I just haven't had the time.   So I admit I was pretty excited when Kalaty rugs asked me to design three "dream rooms" around three of their beautiful hand-tied rugs.

There is something super fun about designing a room from scratch with an unlimited budget and with a great inspiration point; a beautiful hand made area rug.   Our house has hardwood floors throughout and so rugs are an ESSENTIAL part of any good room design.   Rugs add warmth and beauty to a room, and because they cover such a large area, they can have a huge impact on the look or feel of the space.

From the Southwest collection, this Kalaty.com caught my eye.  It would be beautiful paired with dark furniture and silver accent pieces.

I envision it in an office. The shades of gray are a perfect backdrop to bursts of an accent color.  In this case I chose bright orange.  The other furniture has a simple black and white color pallette with straight lines which mimic the geometric pattern of the run.

From the Ikat Collection, this earth toned Woven Caspian rug.  In this case, the color :

I love the ethnic feeling of this rug.  So I combined it with furniture pieces that reminded me of old antiques that could have been collected on world travels.  Making sure I pulled out the beautiful turquoise, gold and red colors of the rug.

Because of the beautiful design, I focused on different textures instead while keeping all the pieces a solid color.

After browsing around their site, I have fallen in love with this Provincial Blue beauty from Kalaty's Contemporary collection.  It would be beautiful in a bedroom paired with neutral bedding which would let the pattern shine. PF 342
The blue and white colors inspired me to go nautical.  When I stumbled upon this gorgeous nautical dresser I knew I had to pull out other brassy accents with the lighting and the nail heads on the bench. Blue and white artwork plays off the rug and helps draw your eyes around the room.  I WISH I could move into this room right now:
