In the world of fantasy and fairy tales, an area rug can be a flying magic carpet that you either ride on to take your princess for a ride or save you when you are trapped in a cave. Unfortunately, it doesn't happen in real life. Nonetheless, a stationary area rug has still a lot to offer. Who, in the right mind, wouldn't want to feel comfort under their feet, wearing socks or not? Same as carpets, area rugs gives a nice warm homely comfort that no hard wood floor can replace.

Your original floors will make a nice border to your rug. Even when you want to use a large rug, subtract at least 9-12 inches from your baseboards so that some of your flooring will show through. Finally, always use a non-ski rug pad underneath area rugs to prevent movement of the rug. The rug pad should be about 2 inches smaller than the rug so that it doesn't show through.

The back of the rug, or the knots, as well as the foundation, need to be protected as best as possible. There are rug pads with holes in them and solid rug pads. In this case, the solid on is best. Moving a step ahead, a solid pad with some sort of texture on the surface is even better. This texture can safely grab your antique rug and keep it from crawling, hence reducing wear.

You will usually want to pick an odd number of pillows somewhere around three and seven for a natural asymmetrical look.

Husband pillows are used to prop a person up in bed, for instance to read or watch television. These pillows are tall for a person to sit against and have two arms that reach forward that you can lean on. The pillows get their name because using one is similar to being hugged from behind.

You can buy some beautiful silk flowers that express the flower of the season that you were born in, or maybe just the flower that you really love the most, and decorate a simple mirror on your living room wall. Mirrors are great for making a room appear to be much larger than it actually is too. Another great idea that not many people have thought of is wrapping picture frames. You buy some nice fabric with a complimenting pattern and literally wrap a picture frame like it is a gift for some one, leaving the back open. Then you can hang it on the wall and add some flowers or lace. This will give you have a unique piece that only you have.
