Carpets, especially when patterned or brightly coloured, can infuse the room with a certain look & feel. It can give a neutral room the specific character that you are after or introduce a palette to the scheme.

It enhances the rustic, bohemian and cottage feel that you already get from the soft floral print of the chair, the casual air of the slipcover and the fun the bright baubles.
