Good morning dear readers! Can you believe it is Monday...again, so soon? Time flies when you are having fun! Did you enjoy your weekend? We surely did.
Today we are on Part Three of how to "soften" your rooms. If you missed the first two tips then you can go here and here to catch up before moving forward if you'd like.
Isn't this a gorgeous room here? I love the colors and the mix of chairs - an eclectic look that works. But, what is it that this room could use to 'soften' it a bit? Let's see if YOU can guess Tip #3. Any ideas?
Or this room...we certainly have Tip #1 in place so what else would do the trick in here?
If you guess RUG...then you are absolutely correct! Bonus points for you today!! Tip #3 is using a RUG to soften your room. It not only softens the look and makes it feel more inviting (thus less cold and hard!) but it helps with toning down the echos in your room. I've especially noticed that when you have hardwoods or tile sound bounces all around...so, for this reason too...a RUG is nice.
I'm sure you can tell that this room has the first two tips in place...and the rug too. Can you imagine this room without a rug? It just wouldn't be as "soft"....not to mention the sound issue. A rug also helps to tie your area together which you can certainly tell in this photo that this large conversation area is now defined by this rug. It anchors the room. "Simply Irresistible" I think!
Here we have a neutral rug (with pillows and floral in place too) that does just the same thing (softens the entire room) even though no color is involved. It also defines this space well. Can you envision this space without a rug? It would be COLD and HARD!
And yet another example where Tip #1 and Tip #2 are in place...but the RUG softens it even more...lovely!
I'm telling you the truth...a rug will do SO much in your room. You need to really take a look around and see where YOU could benefit from adding one to your decor! You won't be disappointed. Here is a lovely colorful room with all previous tips displayed wonderfully...but this rug is cream of the crop in 'softening' in here!
Even if you decide you'd much rather pop a color instead...it will still accomplish the "softening" effect.
Another great example of all three TIPS put to good use...FLORALS-check, PILLOWS-check, and RUG-check. Wouldn't you say it's no longer COLD or HARD in here? It IS "soft", cozy, and inviting. These last three photos are rooms using rugs we carry...some of the new introductions here...aren't they all great?
If YOU need help pulling together rugs and/or pillows for your rooms in order to carry out these TIPS then please let us know. We'll be glad to design a plan for you! We can even include our new rug intros...there are many choices to go with any style or color scheme!
I hope by now you are well on your way to "softening" YOUR rooms...are you? Stay tuned because this isn't all...we have more tips to share.
Thanks so much for stopping by...
Have a "Simply Irresistible" Day!
