I love your blog, and I am in dire need of real world mom carpet design advice (not salesman!) for my 1st floor. I have Ben Moore edgecomb gray paint on my 1st floor, and I need custom size rugs for my living room, dining and fam room bc they are all odd sized rooms. I want neutral color rugs that all flow together since i am using pillows , wall art , plants etc for color. I love Masland carpets too - but how do I choose what goes together / flows well? Should I get 3 rugs all the same? 3 different patterns? How light /dark in color should I go? What styles are more fam room vs living room appropriate? In an ideal world, wool or nylon? Any help would be much appreciated.
Looking forward to your practical yet always stylish advice!
There are a lot of ways to approach this, but I will give you my "if it were me" answer. I would use different rugs in each room. You can do this and still keep them incredibly neutral, like you mentioned you were going for. When I am combining three different rugs, I like them all to look great together, but they don't need to "match." I like using a variety of textures. Different
here's an example:
Sisalrugs.com- kenya Sisal in Nickel (comes in custom sizes)
Moor Rug, by Capel- in Stone (comes in custom sizes)
Pebbles by Capel- (available in custom sizes)
I love Masland, but also consider Capel- they have a large selection of area rugs that you can have in custom sizes.
