1 Rug, 12 Ways: Malta

A classic combination of subtle stripes, this soft and durable wool rug feels effortlessly chic in every room.

Layered Luxury

Decorating with pattern and texture is the key to creating a room that feels especially indulgent.

Coastal Charm

Ellie Mroz Design, a boutique design firm out of Westfield, NJ, made the intentional decision of playing up the colors and tones instead of going with anchors and shells; the more obvious, or traditional, coastal-themed design scheme. The striped rug feels subtly seaside, while also providing movement and texture.

Mix touches of raw wood tones in a weathered gray and white color palette to nod to either coast.

Boho Minimalism

Jordan from House Becomes Home Interiors in California, created this bright and serene bathroom escape by highlighting texture. Natural elements like the wood in the stools, a wicker basket that stays in tune with the blue and white color palette, and the mixed tile wall in the background, all work to create a layered design.

Sunwashed Mediterranean

Adding small touches like color blocked pottery, that keep with the flow of the smooth, sculpted surfaces in the space, complements the design instead of competing with it. The blue and white runner lends a certain Santorini-esque charm to this tiny hallway, while the natural light through the glass-paned door allows for the best kind of spotlight.
