Decorating with rugs gives your home personality and life. Create a cosy atmosphere in every room with the use of strong colours and patterns. Consider the purpose of the room and rug, the mood you want to create and if you would like to enhance or contrast the interior. Choose a rug that harmonizes with the surroundings and use complementing colours and patterns in other interior details, such as cushions, curtains and vases.
Josef Frank gave rise to the design philosophy Accidentism. In his manifesto, he expressed a strong desire to create harmony through combinations that are perceived as unexpected and unintentional. “We should design our surroundings as if they originated by chance.” Josef Frank argued that strong colours and soft textiles were things that added joyfulness and provided relief from the stress that is caused by our everyday life and living. “It doesn’t matter if you mix old and new, or different styles, colours and patterns. The things you like will always blend, by themselves, into a peaceful whole.”
