North Vancouver Home by Scott and Scott Architects

This is a really simple and beautiful home in North Vancouver by Scott and Scott Architects. I love the joinery in the kitchen cabinets, the marble, and the natural wood used throughout the house. I think our recycled wool “Dash” kilim would look pretty stellar in this home. Just saying…

Rug Placement: Kitchen

Okay, this is the last of the rug placement posts. Promise:) But just like hallways, kitchens are often forgotten about when it comes to rugs. But, look what a nice addition a good rug can make in this space?

Rug Placement: Hallway

The poor forgotten hallway. It’s probably one of my favourite spots to add a rug (or runner) – but is so often overlooked. In my (humble) opinion, the hallway is the perfect spot to add character. You don’t have to be so concerned about sizing, matching, etc…and you can really just have fun and treat this piece like an accessory. Stress free! Go for it.

Rug Placement: Dining Room

The dining room is a tricky spot for a rug…(food and all)…but can make such a difference! Wool is generally a very forgiving material and easy to clean. But, you’ll still need a vacuum on hand. Again, sizing questions are always raised. Ideally, I think it’s nice to be able to pull chairs out and sit back down without the legs catching on a part of the rug. But, this means your rug will need to be wider than you might like (i.e. more expensive) and might not fit your space. So, as always, work with what you’ve got and make your own rules.
