Hooked Rugs: Floor to Wall
Other hooked rugs in her home feature various animal and floral designs. When choosing which ones to hang, Linda keeps an eye toward color.”They all have the same muted blue grays and greens,” she says. “I’m huge fan of green.”
Art rugs with bold colors and designs complement sleek contemporary furnishings, she says. “Their designs can really stand out.”
Or, rugs can underscore a room’s theme. For instance, Linda used antique hooked rugs at a show house in Osterville, Massachusetts. “Antique rugs have subtle colors that work well with the house’s wood floors.”
Some of Linda’s clients have rugs custom made for their homes. “One woman had huge rugs hooked for her dining room and a sweeping staircase. She was able to choose the design, colors, and dimensions.”
No matter where they are placed — on the floor or on the wall — contemporary art and antique hooked rugs are a great addition to any home.
