Patchwork Rug Design Party! - The Catwalk Rugs Journal
What can you do with Patchwork Rugs if you're looking to redesign?
It turns out quite a lot actually.
The dynamic and often energetic nature of this breed of rugs helps to put some energy into spaces that are literally gasping for it and much like shag rugs, are a great 'design bomb' to strategically put in place when a space is asking for it.
A skilled eye should be used when placing these rugs due to their inherent power so use a little bit more caution than usual when deciding placement.
Below are some ideas to help you along with what can be done with the right Patchwork rug! We've placed all of our rugs within the Pinterest board above for even easier browsing, along with a few other setting shots and ideas sourced from across the web.
Just a quick note that all of our Patchwork rugs are one of a kind, unique and handmade with one product in stock per product page. That means that once it's sold, it's gone!
In spaces lacking much else going on, a patchwork rug can be a pretty good solution. Wooden or concrete flooring is a good example of this. Some of our Skandi rugs have a similar effect, along with shaggy rugs and just about anything with an eclectic look to them.
In summary, sometimes if there's less - put more - as design is about balance.
Balance the theme
Sometimes to make it work, all you need is a bit of a pre-existing theme going.
The blue cushions, vase, quilt and wall hanging have the beginnings of a look, and the patchwork rug here just completes it. For balance, spots of red have been used. Check our colour guide and defining your space to learn more about colour balance!
Last but not least, decor placement is crucial.
Take a moment to imagine this setting without the tables. A little bare right?
How about the colour? This colour was most likely chosen to accommodate the cream patches in the rug and help balance the wall.
Small details like that should be thought about and can make all the difference! Learn more about picking the right rug here.
