KFD x My Favorite Pins: Beautiful Bedrooms
JANUARY 24 - Written by Kevin O'Gara
As I did before on my old blog, I love taking some of my favorite interiors from Pinterest and choosing one of my original rug designs to complement the space. It's so much fun to see my rugs in such beautiful spaces, but also exciting to see how a different rug changes the feel of the room. While these rooms are certainly breathtaking to begin with, a new area rug is a great way to give a room a whole new look by just changing one element.
Selendi Hand-Knotted Rug >
This serene sitting area in the New York bedroom of Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent's fabulous townhouse was the perfect place to showcase my Selendi rug. The red slipper chair pairs perfectly with the pops of red in this traditional Turkish design, with a center medallion and layers of graphic borders. For more pattern, I recovered the accent chair.
Amiens Tufted Maze Rug >
In this streamlined bedroom by London-based interior designer Brandon Schubert, I placed my Amiens circular maze rug in Sky blue, drawing from the tones in the beautiful bed pillows and the abstract art I placed over the bed. I love how this colorway looks in a room with red accents! To tie it together, I replaced the table lamp with green ceramic.
Mamluk Hand-Knotted Rug >
I've loved this bedroom for years, so it was fun to find a home for my sunny Mamluk rug in this light-filled space. I love how the gold accents in the sun medallions in this Turkish rug design tie-in the velvet lumbars on the bed, and the blue provides a soothing foundation for the room. I added a Venetian mirror to amp-up the eclectic glamour!
Lucca Tufted Maze Rug >
In this sophisticated, minimal bedroom design for model Martha Hunt, I knew the Lucca concentric maze design would provide the perfect, meditative element to the room. In the Wheat tan colorway, it doesn't draw away from the striking dusty pink bed or textured green plaster walls. For an unexpected vintage element, I also added an oil portrait.
Knossos Tufted Maze Rug >
This layered bedroom in the Hollywood Hills is home to so much great vintage artwork, so I placed my Knossos hand-tufted maze rug below the bed to complement the warm tones of the upholstery and add a graphic element to contrast the artwork. An antique gilt mirror provides the perfect focal point above the bed.
