What Houzz contributors are saying:
Cut-pile rugs. Cut pile is created when the loops that result from weaving are cut to the same height and allowed to slightly tuft. The types of cut-pile rugs available include:Saxony-pile rugs, which have a deep pile, making them feel soft and luxurious. “The fibers are heat-set so they don’t untwist, but, due to the length of the fibers, they can start to look a little flat in high-traffic areas,” Haigh says. Velvet-pile rugs, which have a smooth, luxurious finish, rather like suede. “These are perfect for the bedroom, although they’re tough enough for other rooms too,” Haigh says. Shag-pile rugs, which have an extra-long cut pile, making them feel wonderful underfoot. “These rugs are best used in occasion spaces, as they can be trickier to clean and maintain,” Haigh says.
Pillows. A few colorful, well-placed throw pillows could be all the color you need. This is an easy way to add color without a major investment of time or money. Scatter throw pillows on the floor, sofas or chairs, using colors that connect with the other textiles in the room.
