Your floor is a wonderful, perhaps unexpected place to start when building a pulled-together room. Turn to a stunning rug, for example, to set the tone and bring your storyline to life.
Let’s say that you want to create a Palm Beach-style vibe—all pinks and greens and whimsy. Then why not put down the exuberant, transporting Road to Canton area rug from Madcap Cottage for Momeni with its sophisticated good looks, and watch your room bloom in style. Pull colors from Road to Canton to use in the room: Perhaps paint your walls a pale pink and mix cool green and pale blue hues pulled from the rug throughout the space—from your armchairs to pillows and lampshades. And black furniture works in every room, so maybe add some black-painted side tables or a black secretary. Throw in some wicker. A terrific potted plant. And lots of great design books.
Voila, you know have a room that really packs a Palm Beach punch. And you didn’t even have to purchase a plane ticket or book a hotel room!
