Check out the rest of our blog to see what interior designers and homeowners are obsessing over this year. 

Muted Neutrals 

The words natural and neutral have been major buzzwords for interior design in 2022. After a hectic couple of years, homeowners are searching for sanctuary in their own homes and moving towards a more natural and neutral approach to their home, reminiscent of the comfort of Hygee. Neutral area rug designs and colors are becoming increasingly more popular as they are versatile to many different home designs and manage to accentuate living rooms without becoming the center of attention.

Simple, no-frills area rugs complement your home design for a more put-together cohesive look.
