How To Do Boho Multiple Rugs In Your Home

Favourites 28

We all know the fashion kudos attached to layering our clothes and now the concept has filtered into our homes too, as chicly styled, multiple rugs pop up all over Pinterest...

A fuss-free way to add character and texture to a room, layered rugs lend themselves naturally to abodes that err on the side of bohemian – think Aztec prints, tassels and tie dye, which can be layered on top of one another or used in sequence in a long corridor to stylish effect. But don’t think it can’t work in contemporary homes too. We love the idea of a faux-fur rug on top of a monochrome print, or on-trend chevron stripes in situ with honeycomb motifs. And, if you’ve been harbouring a Persian rug somewhere that you don’t know what to do with, this is the perfect way to make the old new again. Want to create the look yourself? Just have a read of these five golden rules, courtesty of Letty White-Spunner of Jane Churchill Interiors to get it right. 

  • It’s easy to make three rugs look like one if you cleverly mix and match textures. Think woven stripes with animal hides or a heavily patterned kilim over sisal.

  • Keep colours similar but not necessarily the same. Different shades of a colour or some patterned and some plain look nice as long as there’s something they all have in common. 

  • Putting two rugs under furniture (especially beds and sofas) works just as well as putting one and adds another dimension to a room.

  • Don’t think you have to literally ‘layer’ rugs to get the same effect, a trio of rugs along a corridor for example can provide the same cosy, boho look.

  • For the optimum effect, use this technique in an otherwise simple, minimally decorated room.
