I am working on a project right now in Boston. It’s one giant room that holds living room and a dining room.
As many of you know, I like to start with the rugs. We found some rugs we liked, but the colors weren’t right. So the vendor shipped the color ways we were interested in.
The bamboo rug we knew was spot on color wise. The clients loved it. I love it!
Then the second rug arrived. It was a lovely diamond pattern and although the colors were close enough, the patterns did not speak to each other. The movement in each rug was not in concert and for lack of better words one seemed too quiet for the other. We could custom the colors in the diamond patterned rug to get a closer match color-wise but I don’t think that will solve the problem.
Here they are next to each other.
Since I wasn’t crazy about that combo, I went looking for a better set.
Here are two rugs that I think will work together. I emailed the client these same pictures showing each combo and she’s excited about seeing the dotted one and the bamboo one together in her home.
We’re looking at them in her space soon.
Will let you know how it goes.
