Every Thursday on CasaSugar, I'll give you a decorating challenge and ask you to go Casa Craving for items that fit the look. (Here's a post explaining what a Casa Craving is and how to create one.) While browsing the divine web site of The Rug Company the other day, I came across this Paul Smith Swirl Rug and thought it would be fun try try to design a room around such a loud design.
For this week's Casa Craving Challenge, I'd like you to design an understated living room with this rug as the centerpiece. So let's all create Casa Cravings for furniture, lighting, and accents that would be complementary, but quiet. I, for example, would use a white sofa, light wood furniture, and a few bold accents to play off the colors in the rug.
What would you use? Tell me by tagging your Cravings with the phrase loud rug, and I'll feature the results next Wednesday, Sept. 5. Even better, you can create a list of your bookmarks; TeamSugar has a great tutorial on listmaking if you're not sure how. Please let me know if you have any questions.
