Previously, Brandon Oriental Rugs posted on Twitter about our efforts on behalf of a Bucks County, PA interior designer whom we have helped on numerous projects.
Rug ideas in contention for use by a Yardley, PA area interior designer for a living room project. Low key is key. pic.twitter.com/7nPgqPOmee— Brandon Oriental Rug (@BrandonRugs) August 18, 2015
This particular project was slightly more challenging for her however, because it involved the direction she is taking to redecorate the living room of her own home.
The "BEFORE" images above and directly below, show that the designer has started the transition of her living room from rigid formality to an overall more relaxed look-and-feel suggested by the arm chairs, glass top coffee table, and Shaker-influenced end tables.
The sofa is scheduled to be re-upholstered, the window treatments are being changed to Plantation shutters, and the wall color (to be determined) will go from pale yellow to a warm gray neutral.
The rug chosen (after the pre-screeening of multiple alternate selections outlined above in the TWITTER post) is an 8x10 Pakistan (Peshawar) Khotan collection rug (shown below on the day of its arrival and unveiling at Brandon's one and only location just outside Doylestown in Buckingham Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
Made with 100% hand-spun, vegetal dye wool yarns on a cotton foundation and given a signature "silver wash" to impart the crisp, linen-toned background color associated with Khotan Collection reproduction oriental rugs, this rug brings the impact of a REAL hand-knotted oriental rug to the design plan with a subtle, subdued, understated complementarity.
Seen in the images below in the living room of the designer's Langhorne, PA historic district home on the day of installation, her beautiful new rug is right at home with all she has done in the room, and with the new directions in which she is taking it.
In order to give her time to organically develop her vision for the room, Brandon made every effort to find a common ground between where her room began and where she hopes to take it that was not in any way a compromise away from the ultimate goal.
As her plans develop and are realized, she may continue to enjoy the comfort of a rug that is well coordinated with everything past and future in her home.
