Audrey Drought Design, Inc. Puts a Contemporary Spin on a Traditional Space

Links area rug in family room

Nestled amid beautiful mature oak trees in a prominent Houston, Texas, neighborhood, this traditional Red Brick Georgian architecture residence offers an delightfully unexpected interior. Audrey Drought Design, Inc. rose to the challenge of incorporating their client’s bold contemporary style into this beautiful, traditional setting for a look that is at once dramatic and cozy.

This sophisticated and efficient space features perfectly proportioned furniture in an overall neutral palette. Pops of color and an exciting variety of shapes, sizes and textures add warmth and visual interest to the space. For added dramatic impact the room features intricate moldings, twelve foot ceilings and an abundance of natural light.

With its traditional construction and bold, unique pattern, Merida’s Links area rug was the perfect compliment to this contemporary yet traditional interior. The repetitive, soothing pattern helps create an intimate and inviting space. We love what Audrey Drought Design, Inc. has done and admire their consistent ability to put a fresh spin on traditional interiors throughout the country.

Houston, Texas, based Audrey Drought Design, Inc.. is active in residential and commercial Interior Design projects throughout the country.

Brock Moran Home Chooses an Agave Superior Rug to Achieve Livable Luxury

This week we found another gorgeous and inviting North Carolina home that we think you will enjoy. Brock Moran Home, a Charlotte, North Carolina based home furnishing store founded by Brock McLendon, designed this beautiful lakeside home with a vision of livable luxury. To achieve the look, they paired unique textures together in a sophisticated color palette of tans, browns, grays and greens and topped it off with a few inviting splashes of color.

Merida’s Agave Superior rug in Quarry adds natural texture that offsets the plush velvety surface of the sofa and smooth hardwood floors. The rug adds visual interest and dimension to the room without distracting from the striking zebra ottoman resting on it. The Quarry color picks up coloring throughout the room without blending or getting lost in the other pieces.

Brock Moran Home did a fantastic job on this house – we’re dying to cozy up on the couch and take in the beautiful surroundings.

Laura Casey Inspires with Wool & Sisal

This week we are excited to share a beautiful North Carolina bungalow style home designed by Laura Casey Interiors, LLC with you.  Laura Casey helped a young family transform their home into a serene and inviting space to welcome their new baby.  To do this, Laura and her team carefully selected a unique color palette that is at once soothing and upbeat.  Merida’s Boardwalk Braid rug adds texture to the living space and blends seamlessly with the well-balanced pairing of modern and traditional elements in the room.

The theme of understated elegance is carried into the den, where Laura Casey used Merida’s Cortina rug to add depth and soft texture to the sophisticated retreat, without distracting from the bold pops of color.  The overall result is a beautiful home that is elegant but livable and inviting.  We look forward to seeing future projects from Laura Casey Interiors.

Jute rugs help transform designer Brooke Giannetti’s home

Interior designer Brooke Giannetti recently redecorated her home that she shares with her architect husband Steve and their 3 children. Before the big redesign, the home was a bit on the feminine side and and somewhat “shabby chic.” With pink, frilly pillows and floral rugs, her husband decided that it was time to make big changes to their home that complement their design aesthetics – a whimsical blend of masculinity and femininity. Brooke wrote and posted more pictures about the home makeover on her fabulous blog – definitely check it out!

“We loved the way Merida’s Bora Bora rug in Sunrise looked in the store, so we ordered one for our home in a custom size. It really adds a lot of warmth and texture to the room. The jute is much softer on our feet than sisal or sea grass.” – Brooke Giannetti

Interested in having this rug in your home or using it in your next project? For more information on Bora Bora, view some of our other custom rugs, or visit Merida’s online customer center to request a sample or create a quote.

Merida's Bora Bora Sunrise rug was used in the living room creating light and texture.

Brooke loved Merida's jute rug so much that she got another one for her dining room! The masculine feel of the dining table adds interest that complements texture of the rug.

You can see how the jute rug works with the traditional feel of some of the elements in the room while adding a more modern texture and color.
