Sometimes it just takes one added element to complete a room, spin it around or simply just give it a refresh. Area rugs can add a grownup touch and instantly sophisticate and elevate a space, especially when they add something unexpected to a nursery or child’s room.
Shag is one of my favorites, and I think it works for everyone. This type of rug is easy to care for, hides all the dirt and my kids love, love, love to hang out on this soft style. I love this modern but cozy addition to a child’s space.

Sometimes it’s fun to break the rules and go with a traditional style like an Oriental rug. This is a great way to layer in a one-of-a-kind or special find.

Moroccan shag is always a great choice—it features clean lines and the perfect texture. It’s simple and sweet with a little bit of cool added in.

Geometry is at its best in low pile plush rugs. It’s not too modern, and the pattern is still easy to read. Keeping the palette monochromatic allows for many elements to be layered into the space—the more the merrier!

Gray and orange is always a great combination, and a rug with flat weave stripes is one of the easiest ways to introduce color. It’s classically contained.

Flat weave jute rugs are a great way to fill the room with texture. Durable and soothing, they leave more room for the imagination.
