Kim Scodro Interiors turns a Nourison carpet into the perfect area rug for one of its latest interior decor projects
What do you do when you find a carpet with the perfect pattern, color, and texture to complement your interior decorating project, but the room also features amazing hardwood floors? It’s simple: turn the carpet into an area rug!
Kim Scodro Interiors recently completed a beautiful interior decorating project, tackling the issue by converting a Nourison Wilton Essence carpet into a custom sized area rug, perfectly tying the space together while highlighting the room’s already-existing charms.
Kim Scodro explains how she and her team picked their perfect flooring solution:
“We stumbled across this Nourison carpet and were immediately drawn to its rich peacock hue. It is unusual to find a wilton carpet with a color this saturated. Hints of this blue are incorporated throughout our clients’ home, so this carpet is the perfect element that connects the family room to the neighboring rooms.
“When starting a room scheme, we sometimes pull together fabrics prior to selecting an accent rug. In this project, however, we built the space around this vibrant Nourison carpet…”
“A wilton carpet provides warmth and plushness to a floor, which is ideal for a space often enjoyed and utilized by a family. We opted to cut and bind the carpet into a rug, which is more custom and formal looking than wall-to-wall carpet. The hardwood floors in this space were recently refinished, and a rug allows the beautiful wood floors to stand out as well.
“The playful geometric pattern in the rug creates a powerful statement. Because the rug exudes so much character, the rest of the palette in the family room is more subdued in order not to overwhelm the senses. We pulled in gentle grays, creams, and smaller-scaled patterns. The artwork on the wall, already owned by the clients, effortlessly accents the rug and looks like it was commissioned for the space.
“When starting a room scheme, we sometimes pull together fabrics prior to selecting an accent rug. In this project, however, we built the space around this vibrant Nourison carpet, which resulted in a family room that is comfortable, vivacious, and beautiful.”
