Apart from the practical benefits of a rug (the cushioning, comfort and warmth), rugs can also provide visual value to a room’s design. Consider it, if you will, artwork for your floor. But how to choose one that is well balanced in terms of quality, size and pattern is a skill — a skill that luxury interior designer René Dekker can help you with.
Top London interior decorators such as René Dekker Design will know instinctively how a rug will affect a room, and will also know what shape, colour, and depth of pile to select. Many will use a rug as a starting point from which to choose paint shades and accessories for the rest of a room’s scheme.
Having a fireplace — the structure, the heat, and the spectacle – can bring an element of magic to a room. But choosing the correct style can seem a daunting task — the wrong one can be a costly and ugly mistake, but the right one can bring a unique atmosphere that no other addition can provide. So, choose wisely. Better still, enlist the services of a quality or famous luxury interior designer to help select it with you.
Whether it’s the focus of the room, a practical source of heating, or just a decorative feature, the fireplace you choose should, in simple terms, be something you enjoy looking at. Next, a few questions will help narrow your options.
