Styling Idea # 6 B&W Striped Rugs


Its feeling a little bit warmer in Sydney today- I’m hoping it will reach its forecasted 22 degrees!

I am not really thinking about spring yet (still two weeks to go and counting) but we start to think about ways to cross the seasons- Winter and Spring- Wing? Probably won’t take off. At this time of year the mornings and nights are cold but you want to start to lighten up the place- flat weave striped rugs and native flowers are my pick. This way you keep your feet warm but the lighter stripes put a spring in your step.

  • Welcome to Minimal Rustic Rooms- rooms that use a backdrop of whites, woods, earthy palettes and texture to create clean living spaces that can be layered upon ever so slightly.
  • Black and white is a great base for Minimal- Rustic Rooms providing texture and warmth easily.
  • Use different size rugs- extra large that extends out from a double bed, large in living rooms, medium in dining, small in kitchen, hallways, laundry or dressing rooms.
  • Feel free to place these over carpet or floorboards.
  • Try smaller rugs in larger spaces- a small rug in the middle of blank space can look quirky and interesting
  • Think about using this idea in the smaller sizes under a pre-exisiting side table and build up the black and white theme on the table.
  • Different strokes are not just for different folks- play with horizontal and vertical and kilim prints.

Ikea has a great one that you should buy today! See it here
