Father’s Day is coming up, and we’ve been getting inspired by dad-friendly designs, spaces with rustic touches, DIY enhancements, and no-nonsense color palettes . Here are a few examples of masculine design done right from around the web:

Let’s celebrate spring with beautiful floral additions to beautiful spaces! Flowers and floral prints can be incorporated into interior design and home decor in tons of different ways, here are some of our favorites:

Many people consider the kitchen the most important room in the home. It’s a place for nourishment and creativity, where families gather and meals are made. And while having a sleek wooden floor or tiles is a practical choice, a cheerful little rug can go a long way in sprucing up your kitchen’s look, and keeping your feet warm when you’re making coffee in the morning! Here are some of our favorite kitchens with rugs from around the web:

Come visit us at the showroom and find the perfect rug to compliment YOUR kitchen!

The entrance into your home is the first greeting a guest receives at the door, the first peek impression of your space. But a hallway can be a difficult space to perfect — how do you make narrow dimensions feel warm and welcoming, imbued with the personality of you and your family? The perfect rug can go a long way in setting up your space and creating a welcoming entrance. Here are some examples we’ve found around the web:

Hallway Heaven via Abbey Carpet of SF
This foyer is bright and warm, setting the stage for a neat and well thought out home by matching the rug to the front door and the vase on the side table.

This entryway mingles simplicity with bohemian vibes, letting the warm colors in the patterned runner bring out the natural warmth of the wood and woven basket.

This entryway’s warm rug works similarly, but the dark door, lampshade, and other accents work with the dark navy elements of the rug pattern to create a more dramatic feel. The pink and reds in the rug keep the hallway from feeling severe.

This black and white mudroom keeps things simple and organized. The space looks crisp and together, but the striped runner adds a playful element.
