I got the blog post...

Ya'll know I've been raving about the #getsmart @tiltsmarthome blinds. πŸ‘I'm obsessed!
-
-
-
I have to mention another thing I have come to love about these is that I can adjust the blinds from my app according to the kids particular needs. #sponsored -
-
-
For example, our daughter likes to hang out in here and do her nails, read, chat on the phone with her bff.  All the teen girl things. πŸ’…
-
-
-
And if it's scheduled for them to be closed (based on the hot afternoon sun holla temp sensitive blinds)  I can adjust them to open downward enough to give her light while still keeping most of the heat out. -

Teen happy, mom happy, wallet happy πŸ’° #tilt

I'm stoked to share with you that I'm a new #purplepartner embarking on their 100 night trial.  We are a few days in and I've been dying to share this with you! πŸ’œ

You can see our youngest little is testing out the mattress, just prior to this photo he was assessing it's "jump" factor.  The verdict "Mom! It's SO squishy and soft! Can I keep jumping puuuhhhllleeeaaassseee?!" -
-
-
Tulip was giving the @purple dog bed a test drive, which she literally spent every moment on until she passed a few days later.  We are so grateful her last days were spent in such comfort and support enjoying this bed. ❀
-
-
-
Now our other pups are enjoying while we get a feel for the mattress!
-
-
-
It's been a bit over a week and I must say we are very impressed! I have lots of back issues while the hubs gets numb arms from side sleeping.  So far this has made a difference in our quality of sleep! πŸ˜ͺ
-
-
-
I am really looking forward seeing what kind of longer term usage benefits there might be from this mattress, which is one of the coolest innovations (in my humble opinion) in sleep.  Holla 4" purple smart comfort grid!! And coming from a horrible sleeper that's saying somethin 😁 #lifeonpurple

-
-
Hit up my stories where I share the process from delivery to intial impressions!

I'll share my honest thoughts and experiences with you during this 100 night trial so you can make an informed decision on what's best for your sleep! πŸ›

5 Tips to Layering Rugs….How to Make it Look Gooood.

tips to layering rugs, how to layer rugs, home decor, interior design, family room, bedroom, using smaller rugs, textures

 

You asked so I’m answering!Β  How do you layer rugs and make them look good?Β  Can you layer rugs over carpet?Β  Do they have to be the same texture?Β  What sizes can you use to layer?

As I sit here I have layered rugs/carpets in 6 areas of my home…suffice it to say mama ain’t shy about playin with rugs.Β  So, here’s how I approach it!

Layering Rugs Tip #1:Β  Make sure the rugs you are wanting to layer go together color-wise.Β  By this I mean they have similar color palettes.Β  As in here…

I’ve got 2 different rugs, both 5×8, in roughly the same color palettes. I also have dark cowhides layered underneath those…just to help visually extend the “rug.”Β  Since the 2 smaller rugs have similar colors they play off of each other.

Β Layering Tip #2:Β  You can also layer 2 different colored rugs, if one is a neutral or made up of neutrals.

As in here…I have one smaller round in a cream/black combo with a bold color pop on top.Β  The neutral is there and acts as a base for the colorful one.Β  It also visually expands the size of the colorful rug to look larger.Β  Notice I used different shapes for even more impact! (more of that office space here!)

Β  Layering Rugs Tip #3:Β  Use different textures when layering.Β  (This includes thickness)

As in the previous 2 shots you can see that the rugs layered are different.Β  The first one has a flat weave underneath with a thick wool on top.Β The second has a round pulled wool underneath a crewel work.

Here I have 3 layered!

See how they all have different textures?Β  I have a wool with a raised pattern layered with a faux sheepskin and then a flatweave kilim. So 3 rugs…all over carpet!Β  And it works.Β  They all go together because of the color flow. (mustard/white) And the different textures keep it interesting. (more of this room, including paint treatment here!)

Β Layering Rugs Tip #4: Yes, You can Definitely Layer Rugs Over Carpet!!

Here’s our daughter’s room.Β  Big ole rug on top of carpet.Β  I view wall to wall carpet the same as a wood/tile hard surface floor.Β  It gives no definition to the space nor is it a visually interesting surface.Β  A rug brings some life!Β  Imagine if the rug wasn’t in here…everything the same but no rug.Β  It would fall a bit flat because the design isn’t carried all the way through the room. (more of this one here!)

Layering Rugs Tip #5:Β  Like Nike Says….Just Do It!!

Go for it!Β  I have several small rugs in spaces like the family room and the bedroom.Β  Because a. Big beautiful rugs are expensive….and b. I had some smaller ones laying around that work together so I used them.Β  (which really is an extension of a. but who’s paying attention to that?!)

This is the flatweave Kilim you see a glimpse of from the photos above, layered over carpet and having a big “look at me” moment.

Β Consider these 5 things when you want to do some layering and you will have a fab customized space all your own in no time!Β  And stay tuned..I’m sure I’ll be rug swappin again in the not too distant future.

What do you think? Are you team rug layerer or team singleton rug?Β  You can go both ways it just depends on what look you want!

I always love to hear from you so hit me up in the comments!

    Love colour!! Good tips. Where are your fave places to shop rugs??

      Hi Sam! It depends on what you are looking for, Home Goods and World Market are both good options. (The 2 layered in the family room are from these 2) World Market has sales regularly so you can get some pretty great deals. RugsUSA is another good one, they have thousands of styles and sizes and they always have great sales going on. (the big pink one in the bedroom is from them) Anthropologie has gorgeous rugs but they are expensive, so I only keep an eye on clearance rugs. If you want a more unique eye catching/handmade rug like a Beni Ourain or Beni Mguild there are lots of great small shops on Etsy that carry those!
