Familiar yet fresh, the bright Rhapsody rug (above) is one of our new favorites, dancing with a tribal-inspired diamond design in a bold pink, purple and red colorway.

It would be impossible to not smile in a room with a rug as cheery and bright as these. The reversible Tiki Stripe style, in lightweight woven cotton, makes a bold statement in magenta, aqua, orange and green. Likewise, vivid flowers come to life in the Power Poppies area rug, a low-maintenance style with big impact in a girl’s bedroom or playful living room.

Q&A with Christiane Lemieux, Founder of DwellStudio


DwellStudio Home Eva Bronze Pillow, Modern Border Ink Duvet Cover Set, Mini Stripe Smoke Wool Rug

Name: Christiane Lemieux, Founder of DwellStudio

Tell us a little about your background. I have a degree in fashion design from the Parson’s School of Design, and worked for GAP and Isaac Mizrahi before falling in love with and transitioning to home design. I loved and still love the idea of marrying beautiful fabric to a piece of furniture! After working in the field for about a year, I founded DwellStudio in 2000.

What role does fashion play at DwellStudio? We are a fashion-driven company and spend a lot of time studying the runways for forward-thinking colors and details. I’m also inspired by my travels. When I travel, I immerse myself into the culture to discover what it has new to offer our designs.

What trends are you noticing? We’ve really been inspired by the richness of some of the things we’ve been seeing. The reds and oxbloods, the handwork and textures. There’s a real yearning now for things that feel special, rather than mass-produced.

What inspired DwellStudio’s fall styles? We like to have signature colors. For fall, we mixed in reds, camels and taupes, along with the navies, reds, yellows and oranges we saw on the runways. The best part about our collections from season to season is that there’s continuity throughout, from bedding to rugs. We build our lines so that new styles can be incorporated easily.


DwellStudio Creator Christiane Lemieux

Describe the inspiration behind your fabulous rugs. This season we wanted our rug designs to be versatile but add design and luxe to any room. We added gorgeous materials like rayon for a chic yet durable shine. Also, the patterns are graphic enough to make a statement but work in almost any space.

Your top 3 favorite products from the fall collection are… I am in love with our new mini stripe rug. It is an amazing chic basic that works in every room. I also love our new Eva pillow. The hand crewelwork elevates the geometric print, and the quality and texture really make this pillow. Lastly, I just ordered the Modern Border in Ink for myself. I love the simplicity and graphic quality of the black and off-white and the quality of the sheeting is phenomenal. It is from one of the best mills.

Any quick tips for adding fresh fall style into the home? Yes, a few! Pillows are an inexpensive way to layer in fall style, texture and color. I also love throws that are warm and cozy and add that layered feeling. And scented candles. The sense of smell is oftentimes forgotten, but candles in red currant or other seasonal scents feel so good this time of year.

Decor Mentor’s Buying Guide: The Perfect Area Rug

After working on more than 350 client homes, I’ve found that area rugs that are too small is one of the top three mistakes! I’m Lisa Ferguson of Decor Mentor and Lisa Ferguson Interior Design, and I’m here to spill my designer secrets with Layla Grayce so you can get it exactly right!

BUDGET: I recommend budgeting 25% of your room’s decorating budget for your rug.

STYLE: Do you know if you are more Modern than Traditional? Take a look at Decor Mentor’s 6 favorites. We love that you can almost always take a rug in either style direction!

COLOR:

  • If you have pets and kids, choose colors that mask dirty hand marks and pet hair. 
  • The more pattern in a rug, the lower the maintenance. 
  • The more color in a rug, the easier it will be to make a room feel layered.
  • Take cues from your rug to build a color scheme for your entire room. As designers, we color match colors in the rug with paint chips to use as color references. We always carry the chips around in our client files to help match!
  • You can use rugs of different patterns within the same room as long as the colors coordinate.
  • SCALE: Always vary the scale differing patterns in your room. Typically, I like to make sure I have a mix of small, medium and large patterns, as well as a stripe and some solids in every room scheme.

    SIZE: No matter the room, measure your minimum and maximum sizes before you go shopping. We put the info right into our iPhone so it’s easily accessible.

    Dining Rooms:

    • The chair legs shouldn’t fall off the rug when people are seated at the table or pulling the chairs away from the table to seat themselves. Most dining room tables need an 8′ wide area rug.
    • To determine which size rug you need, measure the length and width of the table and add at least 4′ to each measurement. 

    Bedrooms & Living Rooms:

    • 8-16″ of hardwood around perimeter of an area rug is optimal in the living room. In the bedroom, 24″ of rug on sides and end of bed is ideal.
    • Avoid area rug edges and corners in major traffic flow areas for safety. Go bigger or smaller if you can.
    • At minimum, front legs of furniture should be on the area rug. If possible it is preferable to have all legs on the rug to create a pulled together and professional look.

    Optimal Rug Configurations

    Synthetic Fibers:

    • Acrylic: Very resistant to sunlight, mildew and stains.
    • Polypropylene/Olefin: This inexpensive synthetic fiber is the most water and stain-resistant fiber.
    • Nylon: Durable and easy to clean.

    Natural Fibers:

    • Wool: Softness, durability and cleanability make wool a superior fiber.
    • Cotton: Not as durable as wool. Can often be hand washed but will show wear before wool.
    • Silk: Silk adds luster, especially to wool. I like to see it in blended carpets as it’s not as durable as wool.
    • Jute: The softest of all natural fibers. When exposed to direct sunlight, jute may fade or darken in color. With prolonged exposure to moisture, the fiber disintegrates. 
    • Sisal: Leading the pack for durability in natural fibers. Both static-free and colorfast.

    RUG CARE: A rug pad will absorb sound and create cushion. Not only will it prevent the rug from moving, it will also reduce wear and tear on the rug and the floor underneath.
