Rugs and tapestries are major decorative items that can change the appearance or the character of a room, create illusions of space, add color to an otherwise drab room, or to highlight the centerpiece of a decoration. Choosing the perfect rug or tapestry will be dependent on the effect you want the piece to have on your room.
Rugs are versatile items that can be used in many ways. They can be found on the floor or used as tapestries to hang over railings and on walls. They are very mobile and also very durable.
The choice of rug for the entryway might seem trivial, but it is very important. Entryways are heavily used and it will be a waste to use expensive rugs that will easily wear out. The other uses of rugs in doorways is to enhance the look of the surroundings especially with floors that are plain, and to provide insulation. Rugs are placed in passageways for practical reasons and it is not supposed to outshine or steal the limelight from the rest of the room decoration. People are only passing through. Rugs in entryways can still add personality to the area, with a simple message or design that is appropriate (“Welcome” is, of course, the most widespread conveyance). When people step into your door, the rugs will give them the first inkling of the kind of people living in the place and the reception that they can expect to get, so choose the entryway rugs that will give a favorable impression.
Tapestries are always meant to be seen and will speak volumes about your styles and tastes. A tapestry can be hung on the wall in an entry way, and again you will want this to provide a good clue as to the type of home a guest is entering. It is better to choose rich and warm colors, and your tapestries should not be too striking or vulgar. There should be a good match in the colors of the tapestries and the rest of the room. A common trick of decorators is to use mirrors to create the illusion of two separate tapestries in the room.
Home decorators follows the wishes of the homeowners so it can be safely said that the interior look is a fair representation of the kind of person the host is. So the next time you buy rugs and draperies for your home, take into account the impact it will have on you and on your home.
