Layered Rugs

Hi guys! Hope you had a great weekend. You all seemed to really like our new cowhide rug layered on top of our big area rug in the living room, so I wanted to gather a few more images of this look from around the web. I think it’s such a great idea because it can save you money by not having to buy another huge area rug, but instead just change up the look by buying a smaller rug to place on top and hide that messy stain. ;) And of course because it’s pretty!

Do you still love the look of layered rugs? I really love the ones with the bright pops of color!

  1. We layered a cow hide in our family room over our sisal and love it for winter months. Great round up!

  2. I think I’m still loving the cowhide layering, but I do like the first picture with the two neutral rugs.. it’s such a great solution if your favourite rug is a bit too-small!

  3. I love the look. Have it in my home.

    i was hysterical laughing when I saw the covered steps for the little terrier. Sorry I digrees!

  6. Im with you… I LOVE the bright pops of colour!
    Particularly the magenta one.
    Thanks for a great blog post.

  7. Love the look of layered rugs – especially the one from Budget Wise Home! I like that you can pair a neutral rug (that can be practical – absorb cold air and etc) and a patterned one for a whole new look. Plus then you can swap the smaller one out for different looks in different seasons.

  8. Love the idea of layering rugs. We are still on the hunt for a second rug, but you just gave me a great idea. Thanks!

  9. What a very nice topic but I also want to share to all of you about the Window Coverings they offers window treatment for home and office to make it the perfect setting and transform into the ambiance you desire.

    Really love the mushroom color and oyster bay. Serena and Lilly no longer have the mushroom color available I really need the color code for it from sherwin Williams. So glad I found this blog I have been searching far and wide for perfect greige colors and green greige colors. Thanks
