First off, this goes a long way in making sure that your rug is durable and lasts for years on end. If your rug is simply laid on top of wood or concrete, it is going to wear quickly. And while you may not notice this early on, as time goes by, you will surely be able to tell that your rug is beginning to wear out. To avoid this, make sure that the proper rug pad is used. And if you are not the one doing the installation, you should make sure that you still know what is going on. After all, once your rug is in place there is no possible way to determine with 100 percent accuracy as to if the right pad was used. In fact, the only way that you could do this would be by lifting the entire rug; a process that you probably do not want to get involved with.

When adding throw pillows into the mix it is always safest to go with a somewhat limited color palette and big geometric patterns. Textures such as cotton and linen are the best fabrics though silk throw pillows do have a place in certain modern settings. If you really like a lot of color then the best bet is to snatch the color palette from an existing piece of art or "busy" decorative item.
