It’s Christmas time already! Festivities are just a couple of weeks away, but it isn’t too late to add some new decorations for the holidays. As we enter the Christmas count-down it is important to start thinking about your interior space. Whether you are lazing on the sofa or entertaining family and friends, creating the perfect atmosphere is a definite must. A rug is a brilliant accent piece as it is one of the only decorations that you’ll be able to use throughout the rest of the year. A Persian or Oriental carpet can transform any room, they are wonderful for creating harmony, texture, pattern, colour and ultimately a cosy lived-in feel to your home. So, what's not to love? From a cosy wool Berber Rug acting as a fabulous focal point in any room, to a detailed and extravagant Persian rug perfect for a hallway or under the dining table, there are so many spaces in the home that you can accessorise with rugs. Here at Lilla Rugs, we love dressing our floors, walls, sofas and outdoor spaces with Oriental Rugs to add character, charm and most importantly personality to your space. We’re going to share some simple ideas on how you can make the most of your Winter decor this year, increase the charm of your interior and achieve the look of luxury with the addition of beautiful rugs. With our help, you’ll have a Christmas like no other!

Dazzle your guests with an entrance to remember! We ask a lot of a hallway rug - they are the first thing the guests will see when they walk into your home over the festive period, so it's important to remember not to overlook this space. A hallway rug is also the most walked over part of the floor in your entire house, so they need to wear well and be practical too. Your entryway should feel warm and inviting. There are many ways in which you can bring the spirit of Christmas to your entryway; greenery, garlands, and an eye-catching Persian centrepiece rug will all reinvent your home ready for the Christmas celebrations.
Spellbind your family and friends with your choice of rugs this season! As the nights draw in and the weather turns chilly, curling up on the sofa in front of the TV or a good book becomes commonplace. I think we can all agree that a living area can never be complete without the addition of a stylish rug. The living room rug plays a significant part in the design of a space. It will make the room look more dynamic, comfortable, and cosy - bringing a warmness to your home interior. Cosy isn't a style but a feeling, the homey ambiance of a room that makes us want to curl up, relax, and cocoon ourselves from the world. A living room might feel cosy because it's furnished with plenty of comfy seating options, decorated with warm colours, and layered with plush rugs and throws. If you are waiting for the perfect time to grab a Persian or Oriental rug for your living room, now is the right time to do so!

One of the most enjoyable parts of Christmas is the festive spirit that floats around your home. The kitchen and dining area is an excellent spot to decorate with a rug during this festive period, as it’s where you’ll get the most footfall. Adorning the floors in your kitchen with colourful rugs creates a warm and homely vibe. A red coloured rug gives that feeling of Christmas: There are virtually endless colour options available at Lilla Rugs, so go and take a look and see what's up for grabs. Rugs not only anchor a room, but they can also zone off spaces. If you are curating a larger room, rugs of different colours and textures are particularly useful in this instance to create clear and defined sections.

Christmas is the cosiest holiday, so the bedroom shouldn’t be abandoned. We spend about a third of our day in our bedrooms, starting and ending every day with the view from our pillows. So it's worth putting in some extra time to make your inner sanctum a restful, warm place to retreat. The first step you take every morning is not something to take lightly! Add warmth to a bedroom by placing a patterned rug underneath the bed. It both makes for a nice place to put your feet down and an opportunity to get creative with colour and design: Choose anything from an antique Persian rug to a modern minimalist piece. A gorgeous rug is one decorative accent required to complete your bedroom; this will carefully tie the space together to add a considered, layered touch to your room.
