Nicole Gibbons, blogger and creative director of So Haute, mixes style and texture in her New York City apartment. \"I'm not one to follow trends, but the layered rug look is definitely a hot design trend,\" she says. \"I see it everywhere from popular home furnishings catalogs to the portfolios of top interior designers.\"
Her advice for getting started: If you're layering your rugs on a hard floor, allow at least 12-18 inches of space on all sides so that you can see the contrast between the rugs. Photo courtesy of Nicole Gibbons.
