Whether you’ve got a little or a lot, furnish your place with a stylish rug
There are investment purchases you can’t really get around when you first start adulting solo, and furnishing your first apartment is one of them. However, while it’s important to make quality buys from the get-go — because with furnishing, you're pouring money down the drain if you don’t — there are ways to curb the sting in your wallet where necessary so you can spend on the pieces that matter most to you. For style, comfort, and their ability to tie a room together, rugs are usually pretty high on the list.
For a conversation piece that will shine in a room with minimal furnishings, try a geometric pattern combined with a bright colour. Yellow will lift any decor scheme.
For fans of rustic decor or anyone looking to bring the outdoors in, jute and seagrass will provide texture and warmth.
For monochrome minimalists or a maximalist looking for a background piece, these solid-colour area rugs are the ideal accent.
