Cool Idea: Faux Rugs That Stick!

Swedish ELLE Interiör styled a stunning, light-filled loft with dozens of dreamy, off-the-wall ideas — literally: see those pillows hanging off the wall? While some tricks are more eccentric than others, one design decision that I'm loving is the faux rugs that were taped to the floors, complete with fringe trim and all. With beautiful knotty pine floors like these, who would want to cover them up? Creating that visual boundary still subtly anchors the furniture above it, creating dedicated sleeping and living areas in the loft. I know the look won't work for every home; it's notably playful and modern. But if you've got an expansive wall of windows and hardwood floors that run for acres, you should be confident you can take on any style.
