This living room in the heart of a Lakewood home is the main thoroughfare through the front entrance and the backyard. It also serves as the family gathering place.
It lacked something visually to tie the entire space together. My thought was the room needed a rug to create unity and add color. There would also be kids running through the house from the yard and pool, so, it needed to be durable and washable.
I found a couple of beautiful options that seemed to fit the bill.
My first choice was Loloi's Javari rug. The color palette of sage, yellow ochre, berry and red warmed the environment and melded beautifully with the neutral tones already established. Resistant to stains, it cleans easily.
The second choice was a rug that had a more limited range of colors with a subtle pattern that whispered across the room. It was the contrast and scale of the texture and design that created scale and intimacy.
Ultimately, they went with the Javari, it is such a delightful addition to their already stylish home. I'm sure they will enjoy it for years to come.
