It sounds strange, but I first started my own home's renovations because of a rug. I found a beautiful Oriental rug at a friend's yard sale that had spent years wrapped up in the attic. However, my living room was just a little too cramped for the rug. I ended up completely redesigning the room, from the ceiling to the flooring. If you're interested in how rugs can take your decor to the next level, let me guide you through what I've learned about tying a room together. I'll share other interior design hints and tricks with you as well, such as flooring recommendations and paint choice tips.
