Rug - Snug as a Bug!
Rugs are a great way to decoratively cover a floor. Whether you have carpet, tile or hardwood, a rug can protect your floor and add a designer's touch to it! Since rugs are more interchangeable than the base flooring, you can change the rugs and change the whole look of a room. It's a great way to vary your interior design.
My favorites are Persian rugs. I love the intricate designs. In fact, they are so pretty that I don't always put them on the floor. Yes, there's a big one in the living room and another runner in the hall, but my favorite is a small round multi-colored Persian rug in deep red tones that I hang on the wall in my bedroom. It's always been just too beautiful to walk on. Cream-colored fringe on the edges hangs down so nicely from the rug!
Early American designs are a favorite of many. There are hooked rugs and shirred rugs and braided rugs. The hooked rugs, in particular, have very intricate designs with various scenes pictured on them. Shirred rag rugs are a creative use of strips of fabric sewn together in a coil or in rows. Everyone knows the traditional braided rugs. They are also coils, but these are made of braids. They can be one color or multi-colored. Look at Rugs Direct.com for some great examples of all three kinds, as well as others.
Of course, the rug of all rugs is the bearskin rug! Honestly, I'd rather have a fake. I don't want some bear to die so he can decorate my floor. But I'm happy to have a good imitation in front of my fireplace. I do spend time on it with my beloved. We pour wine and set out some cheese and crackers and lie back to enjoy the evening in front of the fireplace. Now that's the way to get the best use out of your rug!
There are many rugs ideas on the internet. Browse Cyberrug.com and see!
