On Trend: Adding Texture & Style With a Round Jute Rug

StyleCarrot partner Serena & Lily recently sent me a round jute rug to try out.  I’m using the rug in my workspace in Cape Cod. It’s light and airy and the ample floor space was begging for adornment and texture. The Scandinavian meets beachy Cape vibe works perfectly.

I layered the jute rug over a stripey cotton dhurrie. (Serena & Lily has similar rug styles.) I like it over a larger floor covering, but you can also use it solo. It would look especially gorgeous over white painted floorboards I think.

I love how the concentric circles echo those of the painted targets on the tree trunk slices of my art installation above the sofa. They also pick up on the pattern of the pillow.

The  abstract painting happens to be from Serena & Lily artist Ellen Levine Dodd. She’s based in the San Francisco area, but grew up in New England. I met her in Truro when she visited a couple of years ago, and have since had the pleasure of working with her. Her painting fills this big wall gorgeously.

Adding the Serena & Lily jute rug turned my workspace/lounge from purely functional to cozy. The natural fibers feel great underfoot.
