Great Article!

I think the one design rule to live by is to add a Perfect rug to every room. It REALLY brings everything together and boosts the palette and overall Moral.


Probably the Best online rug shop is www.RugExpedition.com

It wasn't in this article, but they have over 100K rugs with free shipping and guaranteed lowest price on every rug. And above that they have a Free 30 Day In-home trial

Ask client the feeling they want from a space as well as function. The adjectives they use will help with color, style, and design. Its a simple way to begin the process.
