We all want a reason to update a tired, bland room that needs some extra pizazz, don’t we? Luckily for you, we here at Benisouk can help. So, grab that book you have been dying to read, a mug of steaming hot chocolate, throw on your comfy slippers and read our fabulous list of the best ways to winterize your favorite space…with rugs, of course!
First and foremost, have fun with materials and fabrics. Mixing different textures is fun and doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Matchy-matchy is no longer a thing, thank goodness! Consider a neutral bedcover like gray or beige and then go crazy with whimsical, colorful cushions The pillows can be different sizes and shapes. Or switch it up and do the opposite- a colorful bedspread and neutral pillows. Don’t be afraid to be bold. Cushions serve a dual purpose; decoration as well as extra warmth and comfort. Even better, grab a cozy throw and put it on the end of your bed. Your toes will thank you! A blanket won’t break the bank and you can even buy a few and change them up every few days. How about a beautiful centerpiece rug will complete your cozy space? Choose thick pile, soft wool for the cooler months. Throw in a few colorful poufs and your space is now comfy and cozy. When spring and summer roll around, you can stuff your poufs with blankets if you are short of space. Be creative and innovative when it comes to your home. Traditional is no longer the norm so have fun and let loose!
Moroccans know rugs, that is for sure. And Moroccan rugs historically served an essential role-they were often the only means for warming a home besides an open fire. Skilled female weavers would spend weeks creating these plush beauties, typically in their small, sparse kitchens on wooden handlooms. Little has changed over the years when it comes to authentic Moroccan carpets. Generations of weavers continue their meticulous handloomed creations today. The results, you will find, are utterly stunning. Nothing compares to a handcrafted Moroccan rug. Try as they might, people attempt to mass reproduce these gorgeous one-of-a-kind masterpieces and it just doesn’t work. At Benisouk, our goal is to keep the integrity of the proud female weaver intact.
