If you were lucky enough to be in London yesterday, chances are you knew about the Notting Hill Carnival, where an estimated one million revelers gathered. The carnival has taken place every August Bank Holiday since 1966, and is Europe's largest street festival. Inspired by the bold reds, whites, and blacks sported by this drumming group at the carnival, I decided to see what type of room I could put together that might reflect the energy and visual impact of these performers.
I've had my eye on this Ikea Rand Rug ($180) for a while now. It's so versatile and bold, especially when paired with the Jackson Leather Sofa ($6,000), which looks like a perfect place to relax after an afternoon of hitting the Notting Hill streets. To shop the room, just click away at each of the product images.
