When most of us talk about flooring, it’s usually about the material that came with the house (or until the next remodel), not about the creative expression that can change the look and feel of an entire room. Area rugs are the bow on the box! Like a warm hug, the right rug grounds the space and gives warmth to a room and though often afterthought, truthfully should be your first. There are shapes, sizes, material, color and pattern for everyone and every room. Below I lay down some of my favorites.
