“One Love” – Amazing Rugs

I wanted to share this amazing collection of Limited Editon Artists’ Rugs from Woven Accents with you. After attending their “One Love” event I fell in love with these rugs. The aim of One Love is to create new and highly unique rugs by having artists paint over the traditional rugs that Woven Accents carries. The result are rugs that are beautiful works of art. Check out this amazing collection!

To show you how you can get this stylish look, I put together some black and white material boards for the living room, bedroom, and dining room. Take these as simple guidelines to create your own chic space.

For this living room, I decided to put the emphasize more on the black elements, with the sofa in bright white to create balance (since it is the largest piece of furniture).

This bedroom features a good mix of black and white elements to create a luxurious space. Depending on which shade you want to highlight, you can also swap out some of the black pieces for white ones. You want to remember to have a good mix of both colors.

Black and white can read very modern, but when choosing furniture and accessories that have classic lines, you achieve this look while still maintaining a traditional aesthetic.
