Want to invigorate your home with a few new touches of exciting decor? Don’t think you have to be a professional interior designer to create a spectacular layout. It’s not necessary to replace all of your furniture either; well, unless you’ve been waiting for the opportunity to do a total home makeover, that is. Most of the time, adding a couple of design accents to the space is enough to bring it to life and wow guests too. Things like paintings, chandeliers, console tables and decorative objects have a huge impact on a room. At Williams-Sonoma, we have pieces that match any design style. One of the easiest ways to spice things up is with a stunning rug. A rug sale means extra opportunities to accessorize any room of the house. Here are a few tips to help you.


Create a surprising living room. This is probably where you entertain a lot of visitors. It’s also one of the areas of the home that make the biggest statement about your design vision. So blow them away. A large area rug can do two things. If you want your furniture to be the center of attention – like if you have an awesome black leather sofa, for example – a light colored rug enhances it. On the other hand, if you want your floors to look like a work of art, rugs with bold colors and patterns jump out at you. After that, you’re only a hop, skip and two accent lamps away from a finished masterpiece.


Define your open concept spaces. Open concept living and dining rooms are modern spaces that let you spend a lot of time with your loved ones. It doesn’t matter if you’re cooking, you can still be a part of the conversation. The only downside is that sometimes not having walls makes the room feel disorganized. The solution? A large area rug or two. They create visual boundaries for each space. The rugs should complement each other, but they don’t have to match exactly.


Come home with a smile on your face. The foyer is the first spot anyone sees. That means you too. So pick a rug to place in the hallway that makes you happy. Depending on your wall colors, it could be bright, artistic or sophisticated. Make sure that guests remove their shoes to keep it clean. The advantage of wool rugs is that they’re naturally soil- and stain-resistant. They also stand up to wear really well.


Ever wondered how to place a dining room rug? It’s a good idea to maximize size as much as possible. You want an area rug with space for the whole table, and preferably chairs too. If your table is made of dark wood, go with a light-colored design. For an elegant touch, pick out something with subtle floral motifs in neutral tones. Glass tabletops provide a special opportunity for decor since you can see the rug in all its glory. In that case, choose something with breathtaking details and intense colors.


Make work more exciting. When working from home, you spend a lot of time in the office. And if you feel inspired, it’s easier to think, plan and execute your ideas. You’re more productive when you’re happy. And getting things done makes you happy. So it’s a win-win situation. Put some rock and roll into your office with a colorful flatweave rug under your swivel chair. Add some modern artwork and you’re ready for anything.


Design an exotic bedroom. The bedroom is a good place to feel safe and relaxed. There’s nothing like sinking down into a supersoft duvet and letting the stress wash away after a long day. One way to create a haven of comfort and tranquility is to use a soothing color palette throughout. Light green, brown and blue are great choices. That way you feel like you’re lying on a beach somewhere or having your own massage at an Asian spa. An elegant silk rug with geometric patterns is mysterious and inviting. Scented candles let you unwind even more.
