Master Bedroom Rugs

I know it seems a little off the cuff, but layering an area rug in your carpeted Master is completely acceptable. Richcraft_ASHMOREbed1-10

A few of a fav’s in this photo include the oh-so-comfy Birdies Slippers to slip on once you roll out of bed. The lush and incredible soft Chevron Rug to take your cosy oasis to the next level. The Seagrass Wall Baskets adding a soft yet playful vibe to the space and the uber-functional and stylish Cylinder Wall Sconce.


A typical room would take an 8×10. In a larger space, you can opt for a 9×12 if you’re wanting to really cosy up the space or add extra visual impact. Our motto: bigger is always better, but always measure. Always double check you are buying the correct size for your space!

A quick reference is:

King Bed = 9 X 12′  Area Rug
Queen Bed = 8 x 10′ Area Rug

We wanted to switch it up and infuse a little colour into this open concept main floor. Adding the teal not only gave a little personality to the space, it also made for visual separation allowing it to feel cozy in an open floorplan. We grounded the space using a large 8×10 White Fables rug. This not only adds contrast between the chairs and floor, it also softens the room. Every layer counts when putting together a wow space! Pairing the softer elements, like the Nicholas pendant with the more masculine pieces like the Ethan Chair make for a well-balanced space. This could easily be a softer more feminine room by doing one oversized mirror and a fabric light grey or cream chair. The playful wall display creates a fun atmosphere in the space. Don’t forget to mix it up! Mixing your metals and your woods in not only allowed, it’s encouraged! The floors in this home are quite grey. To warm it up we added hits of gold and warm wood tones like the Viveka Table !

 


Richcraft Ashmore Model – Trailsedge

One of our fav’s the Ashmore Dining room wows with its abundance of natural light and spacious size. It’s modern architecture lead the way for the furnishings to follow suit. Black and white played a big part in the overall design (a fav of ours obv!) and was the driving force behind all of our selections in this space. The oversized abstract Urban Faces art not only added to the style of the room it also helped to balance out the large windows. Chandeliers are oh so important (the jewellery of the room so they say) and this Atomica lighting fixture suits the space perfectly! The black Ripley dining chairs were an easy choice, as their open mid-century design adds visual appeal from every angle. The large 8×10 Barkley rug frames the space and adds that much-needed contrast between the table and the flooring.

Our Favourite Paint Colours

Paint Colours_2

Picking a paint colour can be challenging to say the least. There are so many variables that can impact how a colour will look in a space, not limited to artificial and natural light, time of day, furniture, flooring, etc. While we definitely try new colours all the time, it’s nice to have a few favourites we can rely on to work in almost any space.

See our guide below and let us know what some of your favourites are in the comment section.

 

Does this rug make my room look big?

One of the questions we get most frequently is how to size a rug for a room. Like most design questions, there’s no one perfect answer, but our general advice is this: the front legs of all main furniture pieces should be on the rug. Here’s our design team’s take on how to pick the perfect sized rug for your rooms.

Living room

For a large scale living room, where the furniture is floating, there is no excuse for a small rug! Place the front legs of all furniture on the outer edges of the rug or, for a cozier feel, you can actually place all of the furniture inside the outer edges.

Room size: 20′ x 19′

Rug size: 9′ x 12′

In a medium size living room, we normally opt for an 8′ x 10′ rug. The same rules as a larger living room apply. No ‘coffee table’ rugs please folks!

Room size: 15′ x 11′

Rug size: 8′ x 10′

Monday Inspiration 03.19.18

Amber-Interiors-Client-Welcome-to-LA-We-Hope-You-Stay-3.jpg

Design: Amber Interiors

Eve: Canopy beds are making a comeback and I’m not mad about it. It especially works well in a large bedroom with high ceilings like this one because it helps fill the vertical space and adds an architectural detail to the design.

Sacha:
the details in this bathroom renovation are second to none and really caught my eye, especially the gold legs on the vanity. Perfection!

Grace: I can’t get enough of modern farmhouse exteriors these days and this one is particularly gorgeous with its dark tones and perfect modern-meets-traditional lines.  The sleek windows with the earthy stone chimneys and breezeway is flawless.

Designer Picks – Area Rug Edition

image_70fddd91-e461-453a-8647-c4575bccfe32.jpg

Rugs are a staple of main living spaces. Living rooms, bedrooms (including those with wall-to-wall carpet) and yes, even dining rooms, can all benefit from these textured beauties. They add colour, texture, pattern, warmth and coziness to any space and are especially useful to delineate separate areas in open concept homes. We asked our staff about their favourite LD Shoppe rugs and why they love them:

Grace: Infinite Navy Rug – I have this rug in my own home and love how it catches the light and has a slight sheen. It’s also super soft underfoot, and you can’t beat the price.

Sacha: I love the Zuri Zola Rug because it can work with almost any style!
