Center Stage

A rug may be considered an accessory, but it can be the foundation of a gorgeous space. Designer Amy Bubier suggests getting the rug first. "Often, rugs are the more limiting piece when it comes to pattern, color and what fits into your budget, so you may want to start with the rug design and move on to the fabrics and paint from there," she says. Designer David Scott says an area rug should be the "soul of your room," and the "color scheme, furniture placement and accessories should all connect back to it."
