WHY???
Well, first of all,layering a vibrant rug on an old or boring carpeted flooring will definitely add texture and depth to your space.

Secondly, it will enhance the space it is used in and maybe even define new borders.So, ADD richness to your space by bringing in color or texture with rug layering.


ALSO, using a striking rug on a plain one will clearly draw more attention to the furniture placed on it. Therefore, it is the best way to dramatize the effect of a centerpiece.

If you have a very light colored delicate rug that can be easily stained,you can protect it by layering a hard wearing, patterned dark kilim on top.

WHEN???

If your existing high quality rug is visibly stained and there is no way to get it off, then go ahead and buy a new cheaper rug smaller in size and place it on top of the valuable one.Thus, you still have your precious aged rug underlying the newcomer.

You want to change colors but you still want to keep an old rug you love! Well then, go shopping for a cheaper and bigger rug with your new color preference and place it underneath your old one to change the ambiance.

You have completed your entire decoration with a simple and plain rug and you feel something is missing! Maybe you were not brave enough to buy that big vibrant rug, or maybe your dream rug was out of your budget.
Keep in mind that you can easily twist a plain decoration with a small colorful and patterned rug and DON'T FORGET:smaller size will be easier on your pocket.

HOW???

A popular method is to put a cowhide on a jute rug or on a wall to wall carpeted flooring.It has no definite boundaries,so, it will make your space look bigger.Personally,I prefer to use black and white zebra look to create more depth.

VIA  POPSUGAR

Another great way to spruce up your decoration is by placing a round rug on a bigger rectangular rug. It will certainly create a major focal point.I recommend using this method to draw attention to a center piece of furniture like a coffee table or an ottoman.

Layer them unconventionally , maybe half and half for a wider feeling of space. You will definitely MAKE A STATEMENT with an antique kilim randomly layered on top of a plain natural fiber rug.

Confession:No matter why,when and how,RUG ON A RUG is a favorite design trend I won’t give up soon.So, I say, dig in to find old rugs in your storage spaces and layer them for a totally fascinating and stylish new look.

BLACK AND WHITE STRIPES

Who can deny the aesthetic royalty of black or white?? And more than that, who can resist the chic combo of BLACK and WHITE??

For real, I can merely say that the classic beauty of these two contrasting colours is irresistible, especially when they are used together on walls or ceilings in the form of stripes...

Black and white striped wallpapers are quite common and are almost always in fashion. The major issue is how to implement it to your own space and design.

VIA A.CLORE INTERIORS

If you plan to cover all the walls of a space with B&W striped wallpapers,I suggest to dress small spaces. For example, in a powder room,don't hesitate to cover all the walls and even your ceiling with stripes .It can only get less boring in a place where guests will get to spend less time...

HOWEVER, if you are planning to use B&W striped wall coverings in a bigger room, I suggest you accent one major wall with it. Otherwise, it can easily make your space too overwhelming. A B&W wall can be great in a livingroom, a study or in a bedroom as a major point of attraction.I even like them in nurseries as long as the stripes complement the entire decoration.

If you want the stripes to blend in more with your space, make sure you go for thinner stripes rather than bold striking thick forms. Clearly, thinner stripes will be less noticeable whereas thick stripes can easily be too distracting!

VIA DECOHOLIC

+++++Even though many people lean towards using wallpapers when they want b&w stripes, I love to have them painted as well.

This way, you can easily customise your stripes. You don't need to make them all uniform, instead the design could be done with varying thicknesses and in different shapes.

No matter how,I definitely believe in the aesthetic power of stripes especially if they are in BLACK and WHITE.

PLUS, any colour will work great with black and white , so DO NOT FEAR, a striped wall or ceiling will never dominate your overall colour theme.Just add any accessories,fabrics or even furniture made of red,purple,blue or green and you will see how both black and white stripes will further complement your choice of colours.
