I often get emails about the awkward size of my rugs. You may have happened across an amazing vintage rug a time or two and thought to yourself, “How in the world could I make a 102.5″ by 54″ rug work?!” If I wasn’t in “the know” about how to make this wacky size work, I would totes be turned off by the weird measurements and how un user-friendly they may seem.
Well, it is my duty as a designer to let you in on a little secret.
LAYER, LAYER, LAYER!
I have used this trick numerous times in my decorating past….
See what I am talking about?
It’s totally a thing that is acceptable and would instantly give you design clout if you were to do this in your own home.
Lets try it out!
4′ x 6′ Jute Rug + Vintage Kilim Rug = works every time!!
Normally, a 40.5″ x 42.5″ would be super weird, but when paired with a standard sized neutral color and textured rug underneath its works just great!
Happy layering, friends!
