Rugs Done Right
This ia a great example of a chunky sisal rug! Here are a few others, and the links to them:

Most sisal rugs are reversible and should be cleaned without water.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

While many of Butera's rooms are calm and light, he's not averse to having kitschy fun, whether with a nautical theme or over-the-top Americana motifs. "A pair of captain's wheels keeps the nautical ball bouncing in this room," writes Butera. As for textures, he advocates using the practical fabrics and textures that go with sand and sunscreen: painted pine, jute, sisal, canvas and linens.
Interior designer Barclay Butera is never afraid to fully embrace Americana style, especially when decorating seaside cottages.
Why it works here: Symmetry. Instead of the wheels being the focal point, they embellish the centered window.

Enquanto muitos dos quartos do Butera está calmo e leve, ele não é avesso ao se divertindo kitsch, seja com um tema náutico ou over-the-top-Americana motivos. "Um par de rodas do capitão mantém a bola quicando náutico nesta sala", escreve Butera. Quanto a texturas, ele defende o uso dos tecidos práticos e texturas que vão com areia e protetor solar: pinho pintado, juta, sisal, tela e roupa de cama.

Book to Know: "Barclay Butera: Living on the Coast" The aesthetic of seaside homes reflect a magical alchemy between the native and the exotic, the traditional and the whimsical, the mysterious and the familiar." — Barclay Butera Butera captures this magical alchemy in his new book, Living on the Coast (Gibbs Smith, 2012) and shows how to create it. He divides seaside style into five categories in the book: Cottage Beach, Classic Beach, Serene Beach, Modern Beach and Elegant Beach. For each style, beachy textures and color palettes bring a coastal feel to every type of room. Here's a peek at 10 rooms from the book. Add to ideabook While many of Butera's rooms are calm and light, he's not averse to having kitschy fun, whether with a nautical theme or over-the-top Americana motifs. "A pair of captain's wheels keeps the nautical ball bouncing in this room," writes Butera. As for textures, he advocates using the practical fabrics and textures that go with sand and sunscreen: painted pine, jute, sisal, canvas and linens.
