Have you noticed a multi rug layering trend lately? Not talking about the zebra over the seagrass thing (we've had that in the study for a couple of years now - and I LOVE it!)... I'm probably behind the curve on this one, but will definitly use it next fall. If I owned a cabin in the mountains somewhere, I'd be scrambling right now to Tuesday Morning to see what I could find to start out my collection. But since I live in balmy TX, layering and inordinate number of rugs on my floors will have to remain a Fall/Winter thing.
The good news is, I'll have until next fall to amass my collection.

For another beautiful muted color example, hop on over to Tracy Porter and watch the video. She is totally over the top, but chose to do it 'demurely' with the rugs. She also used a little chinoiserie accent table similar to RL's (see first picture).

|Great idea for a child's room, especially since they are washable... I'd be afraid of my son tripping, so some type of rug mat needs to go under... maybe better left for older children... maybe girls only.|
|Is the collection of rugs and different furniture trying to send a message that the host is a little coocoo? Or does this feel welcoming to you?|
