We all know the warmth of wood brings a room and its floors to life, but how often do we have the urge to snuggle up to our pets or children on a hardwood surface? Exactly. So let’s make a case for carpet and rugs. Just like its cousin wallpaper, carpeting has attained a bum rap, thanks to countless burgundy, navy and forest green combos from every hotel and country club around. EEK! But much like wallpaper and other coverings, carpeting has evolved and sprung to life with amazing textures, colors and materials. Give a dull room a quick jolt of caffeine with a great rug or even wall-to-wall carpeting if you dare. For a bedroom or laid-back family room, you can’t go wrong with the soft comfort under foot and fantastic colors available these days!
