TIMOTHY CORRIGAN. Unlike most American designers who start with a rug and build the room up from there I like to take a more European approach in which the rug is just a part of the overall design; I hate it when all of the room‘s colors look correspond to the colors of the rug…that looks a little too studied or "decorated" to me.
Sofas always look better on a rug rather than off or worst still half on and half off. A good modern 10x8 rug should cost you between $7,000 to $10,000 depending on the silk or wool content. A fine antique rug of that size however can cost in excess of $50,000.
The shape of the carpet is entirely dependant upon the shape of the room and the layout of the furniture. Sometimes you like the carpet to appear as an island in a hard space, supporting the furniture, and sometimes you like it to fill the entire space. There are no rules.
If rich fabrics with textures are applied throughout the area, then the tone palette must be simple. Try applying neutrals also mixing white or cream also black with grey, perhaps even a few wooden‐elements. Purple is a advanced tone which gives a royal‐vibe to ’pretty’ much anything. Utilize it as an accent tone also blend it with white as well as grey or pastel shades.
Blue is also a attractive color. Mix it with neutral accents plus don`t forget to play with patterns plus shapes also textures. Definite color mixture are glamorous by nature. For example, black mixed with golden accents would invariably look elegant with exquisite. A black velvet–sofa could be a beautiful focal–point for the space also you could accompaniment it with golden–accent details.
