How to choose and style a rug in your living room - with Flooring Xtra

 

Brought to you by Flooring Xtra


 

There are so many elements to consider when choosing, shopping for, styling and positioning a rug in your living room. It’s a major purchase, something that you hope you will have for a long time and it really does set the tone of your whole space… so with that said, it’s super important to make the right choice!

The position of your rug is the first thing to get right and it all depends on the layout of your space. Generally, the rule of thumb is – if you have small space, place your rug in front of your couch. If you have a large open plan space, choose a large rug and place the couch onto the rug, whenever a rug is placed under a sofa or sitting under furniture it should always be larger than the furniture. If you have two couches facing each other, place the rug between the two couches. And any additional furniture you have, try to put the legs of the pieces onto the rug so they feel like they are part of the space. We love this huge 3m x 4m rug from Flooring Xtra, perfect for a modular sofa in a large room - Everest – Ivory Texture 1630

The look of the rug is the next big choice and a major one. If you are confused with where to start, collect some imagery of spaces and rugs that you like and make a mood board that you can refer back to. Choose a rug that compliments your homes style and the space that it will be in as well as thinking about how it works with your existing furniture and art pieces.

 

 

Choosing a rug that contrasts against your flooring is important, you don’t want it to blend in completely. If you want to go bold and bright with your rug choice, ensure that it works with your other pieces and that there is balance in the space. The Mirage – Navy Morrocan 359 from Flooring Xtra is bold, patterned and a gorgeous Navy Blue but it’s also subtle enough and will work with simple furniture pieces that won’t fight against it.

Functionality is super important and not to be looked over. Choosing a rug with long and plush piles means it can be flattened easily in high traffic areas, so think about where the rug will placed before choosing a soft fluffy rug, choosing a rug with a short looped pile may be better in high traffic areas.

The shape of your rug can transform your space – you don’t have to have a standard rectangle! If you’re looking for something a little bit different, choosing a round rug is a very on trend choice and it will work in more spaces than you may think. Round rugs look great under circular dining table settings, they work well in open plan entryways, kids rooms and placing a large round rug in the living room adds interest and is very functional.

 

 

Colour is also a factor when thinking of functionality. If you have kids and/or animals try to steer away from a pale or very dark rug, they will show up dirt more quickly. Try choosing a mid-toned rug with texture – it will hide the mess for a little longer! A jute rug will stand the test of time and lots of foot traffic too, the Atrium – Natural Shapes Pilu from Flooring Xtra is sustainably sourced and a stunning rug for any look.

Flooring Xtra has rugs in all shapes and sizes with many stores across Australia that can help you with all of your flooring needs.

Bold & Bright - OON release their AW18 collection ‘Falgun’

 
 Styling - Greenhouse Interiors | Photography - Armelle Habib

Styling - Greenhouse Interiors | Photography - Armelle Habib

 

This season Oon goes bolder and brighter with their latest collection entitled 'Falgun'. Falgun is the Nepalese calendar month synonymous with the big colour festival 'holi' which is held at the beginning of each spring. The collection is inspired by the ideals of the festival - both the experience  and the observance. The colours of 'holi' are bright, contrasting, fun and joyous and that is exactly what the 'Falgun' collection embodies.

We love Oon's use of geometric patterns and tailored stitching, which are paired back with the use of natural textures, simple structures and organic shapes. Throughout the range their is a juxtaposition of carefully considered textures all perfectly complementing each other.

The AW18 Collection is all about celebrating colour by encouraging the use of bold colours, mixing and matching patterns and shapes and making a statement with interiors.

Oon continue to stay true to their core values by using traditional techniques, such as 'kantha' stitching from India, while always adding a touch of their signature contemporary style and edge.

Featuring shags, tailored stitching and organic shapes alongside muted shades of hazelnut, soft pink, navy with dashes of red and gold, we just know that you are going to love this range just as much as we do!

A weekend styling retreat with the best in the business... Julia Green, from Greenhouse Interiors

 
 Photographer: Stephanie Rooney

Photographer: Stephanie Rooney

 

If Julia Green had a dollar for every time she has been asked for advice on establishing a career in the interior styling world, she could very likely pack up her props and trade them in for a life of luxury.

As a leader in the industry, it’s a question Julia fields on a daily basis, from budding stylists of all ages and from all backgrounds.

So, armed with a wealth of industry information and her own styling secrets, the founder of Greenhouse Interiors decided to share her knowledge with those looking to establish themselves in this highly-sought-after field.

 
GI_workshop_18march_lowres01.jpg
 

She recently threw open the doors to her Barwon Heads home for a weekend-long workshop where six aspiring stylists, who were given the opportunity to learn what it takes to turn a passion for interior styling into a career.

The workshop covered all aspects of the industry, from understanding personal style to working with photographers and other suppliers, as well as how to win business in this highly-competitive field. Guest speaker Samantha Firestone also shared her knowledge of the importance of digital strategy, social media and marketing.

 
GI_workshop_18march_lowres06.jpg
 

A morning yoga session and an evening glass or two of bubbles offered a perfect contrast to the otherwise fast-paced schedule.

The workshop culminated in a professional photo shoot where participants brought to life their interior concepts using a new range of artworks by Greenhouse Interiors artists Brent Rosenberg, Morgan Jamieson, Prudence Caroline and Kimmy Hogan.

The resulting imagery showcased students’ personal style combined with their newly-garnered interior styling knowledge, and ensured each left with full hearts and minds as well as magazine-worthy folio pieces to rival the best in the business.

 
GI_workshop_18march_lowres08.jpg
 

‘This retreat was a money-can’t-buy experience and was one of the best weekends of my life! Although we were six complete strangers and have different end goals, we all seemed to be at the same stage. Waiting at the start line, a little unsure how to actually start or to reach the next stage. Julia’s energy and passion is contagious and she quickly got everyone to open up and really trust each other in an incredibly supportive environment. Although this weekend was about styling, it was just as much about backing yourself and just going for it. By the end of the weekend, we all left with our hearts and inspiration cups overflowing – not to mention some beautiful imagery to compliment our portfolio’s!’ said participant Alex.

Bright futures, and a solid game plan now await this group of creatives armed with the passion and know how.

A designer furniture collection from interior stylist Sarah Ellison...

 
New Wave

For a long time I have been a fan of uber stylist Sarah Ellison, mostly for her work in Real Living Mag, where she worked as a senior stylist and the style director for over 7 years and also for her down right spot on eye for styling amazing spaces. During her time as stylist she has been on the forefront of interior trends, curating them as well as making them.

Therefore we feel that her latest venture is the perfect fit, a furniture collection all of her own – entitled New Wave. It features furniture and accessories that are inspired by her local Bondi Beach, from key furniture pieces for your lounge room and kitchen, to 70's inspired mirrors and ceramic sculptural pieces. The range is truly impressive, has a distinctly relaxed modern feel and aesthetically is right up my alley!

The collection consists of an array of materials, such as linen, my personal fav terrazzo, marble, brass, leather and travertine. All of these elements work harmoniously together to bring this collection to life, and wow is it divine!

The New Wave collection by Sarah Ellison is available from Sarah’s website, and exclusively through Clickon Furniture nationwide.

Boutique bedding with personality by Siesta Home...

 

Introducing NOMAD by Siesta Home

 

Siesta Home is a Melbourne-based boutique-bedding brand created by Australian Winter Olympian Johanna Lyle. The collection is bold, fun and full of life, an invitation to play.

Drawing on influences from her European travels and colourful memories, Siesta Home collections are a postcard from Joh's former life as a snowboarder.

"I remember being the most colourful snowboarder when I was in the 2006 & 2010 Winter Olympics."

Now a mother of 2, Joh pursued her passion for interior styling after retiring from her Olympic career. Her artful eye and her penchant for colour resulted in a 7 month long passion project renovating her Melbourne home. While renovating, Joh's natural gravitation towards colours, patterns and prints led her to start designing her own unique bedding collections, with a plan to inspire people to have fun and experiment with their bedding too.

 

 Styling & Photography - DOT + POP

Siesta Home’s latest collection entitled ‘NOMAD” is inspired by a feeling of wanderlust, being in nature, and starry nights. The natural beauty of all the colours and patterns in the countryside has played its part in the new collection; from the green grass, to the pink and lavender native flowers, grey rock formations, peachy soft sunsets and dusty brown soil that create patterns in the land.

 

 Photography - Suzi Appel Photography

“All these little elements worked together beautifully when designing Nomad, and I hope they spark a feeling of joy in nature and appreciation of its beautiful creations every time they are used.”

 “I have always been drawn to colour and experimenting with mixing and matching different tones. Every design has been carefully chosen to complement each other - which is why some are reversible! The concoction of colour and play on patterns is something that gives Nomad its unique personality.” Says Joh.

The range has a super luxurious feel and will transform your bedrooms look and feel in an instant. We love Joh’s motto that “that the simple act of changing your sheets can bring about a positive and refreshing energy to your bedroom. And who doesn't love fresh sheets?!”

Everything in the collection is made from beautiful, high quality materials including cotton linen, cotton velvet and cotton percale to ensure the best nights sleep as well as longevity.

We love that every item in the range is designed to be mixed and matched - for all seasons and to suit your home's interiors. Siesta Home encourages people to match their moods with their bed sheets, a motto I’m definitely taking on board!

The collection includes reversible duvets, standard and euro pillowcases, plush cushions and throws and a beautiful sunset fitted sheet to compliment the unique colour palette.

Nomad is for anyone who dreams of wandering, and wonders to dream.

Luxurious cotton sheets that will make you feel like you're sleeping in a hotel...

IN BED Cotton: Introducing 400 Thread-Count Percale

IN BED have released their latest offering - a 400 thread-count cotton range that is inspired by the aesthetic and feeling of crisp white cotton sheets – the kind you find in the rooms of boutique hotels, artfully layered and exceptionally soft. And who doesn't love a luxe hotel bed, am I right?!!

The cotton sheets are closely woven to be smooth, light and breathable, making them ideal for warmer seasons and balmy climates.

For the launch of the cotton range, IN BED partnered with Portuguese accommodation project Santa Clara 1728, located within a starkly beautiful 18th century façade in the heart of Lisbon’s old cultural quarter. The hotel’s location and design makes for a campaign that extends naturally from IN BED’s own aesthetic, mirroring the thoughtful, modern, and minimal design approach that they embrace in all of their product ranges.

The hotel is one of the four design-led properties by hotelier João Rodrigues and has been designed by renowned local architect Manuel Aires Mateus, whose clean, modern interiors give lift and light to the building’s ancient walls.

I have created a Neutral Rug Edit for you to check out today - some have pattern, some have detail and some are more simple but the main thing is that they are all super gorgeous, so basically there's something for everyone!

We love this collaboration between Beeline Design x Design School

 

We love everything that Beeline Design do and their recent collaboration with the students from Design School is just so stunning. The collaboration marks the release of their newest piece the “Flow Table”.

The introduction of the Flow Table to the Beeline Design catalogue signals a new direction for the brand who until now is best known for their Calypso Stools and more recently Cuba Bed.

"We wanted to really capture the versatility and functionality of this table, to demonstrate it's many 'personalities'" says Lucy Grant who is one half of the duo behind Beeline Design.

"I really loved the work I was seeing come out of Design School and so when we were looking at how to communicate our vision they were our first choice." Continues Lucy.

Against the backdrop of the stunning Establishment Studios the Design School students created an incredible array of looks varying from modern minimalism to faded decadence. The image series also includes some existing pieces from Beeline's Cuba Collection which has been re-interpreted by the students; giving the range a more sophisticated edge whilst still retaining their relaxed modern aesthetic.

“I wanted to keep the brief really open and see how they chose to interpret our products and we are just blown away with the creativity and variety in the results.” says Lucy.

Whilst working predominantly in solid timber; with each new range Beeline use a secondary material as the hero of each piece. Following on from the leather in their Cuba Collection, the Flow Table utilises the strength and functionality of powder coated steel paired with Tasmanian Oak in its form. 

"We wanted to design a table that made a statement but had a classic feel" says Adam Brislin the other half of Beeline Design. 

Looking forward the brand is working on expanding their Flow range with new designs slated for release early next year.

A huge thanks to the following students from Design School: Anna Chisholm, Justine Murphy, Bea Lambos, Elena Seton, Rebecca Leijer, Holly Miskimmin, Susan Ruzeu, Sidonia Thomas, Danielle Mozjerin.
