I love to mix vintage rugs (Orientals right up through Navajos) with custom carpets designed specifically for texture and color. Blending them throughout a period or modern home updates the old and anchors the new.

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.

I thought that a mix of contemporary furniture and a historic carpet would imply the ascent of man and that we are continuing to evolve. Often I use a carpet to pull in all of the color elements of an interior and its adjoining views and gardens to create a harmonious continuum. I prefer a wool/silk blend for its feel and sheen, especially if people are going to roll around or play on it.

Carpets also reflect history and culture (one could literally tour the globe and discover it‘s history by looking at carpets). Carpets can be art and should be purchased with one‘s budget in mind and the time line for that particular space.

A good repair does not affect the value, but a bad repair ruins a rug. When choosing your rug size make sure your furniture fits onto the rug.

A good rule to follow when selecting a size is always choose a rug that is between 1/2 and 3/4 the size of the furniture grouping. The average cost for an 8‘ X 10‘ area rug is $3,000 to 3,500.

While allowing my imagination to wander before choosing a carpet for my studio, I considered the most beautiful carpet I have ever seen (the carpet on the chapel balcony at Fontainebleau - Savonnerie(?) and inquired about the cost of such a carpet). Reality, of course, set in.

LA Contemporary Living Space. The marvelous mirrors beyond the sectionals space not only pretty but also special from one another – something anyone will want. Miami Contemporary Living Space. Utilizing tiles for the walls of the living area maybe the wall–decor in itself, but since the tone is a bit cold – appending colorful cubes like the other–picture we have above is just a work of ‵art‵!
