Zebra Rug

Any bland room can come alive in an elegant manner by decorating it with a zebra rug. Of course, you don’t want to overdo any type of jungle theme, so you must carefully choose the wall paint colors and furniture so it blends and is easy on the eyes. Since the zebra print tends to be available in two main colors (although multi-color schemes do exist), it’s easy to use one of these colors with your decor.

Balance

Contemplating the use of basic colors and contemporary furnishings, this patterned type of rug will add some exhilaration to a living room area. Keeping balance in mind, experiment with muted shades like white or gray and beige for the furniture while choosing bold colors for other pieces. You can also opt to have some large pieces of your furniture match one of the rug’s colors, which increases the sense of balance in the room. In a living room, you could use contemporary furniture and place some plants around the room to give off a nature vibe.

Dining room

For example, you can place a zebra rug underneath a dining room ensemble to give it a central point. The look of the dining area can be made more pleasant by properly aligning the pulsating stripes of the rug with the width of the dining set table’s legs. Try to choose a rug which will go well with the particular wood used for your dining set. A rug which is much larger than the table itself will provide guests with an elegant scene that they’ll remember even long after they leave.

Bathroom

A bathroom can also benefit in its appearance by incorporating a zebra rug into its decor. The room can be accentuated by putting this type of rug in front of the bathtub or toilet. You can even find a few bathroom pieces such as a toothbrush cup or shower curtain in this same pattern. Another option would be to find some African masks to hang on the walls. Of course, you’ll want to keep the jungle look low-key by blending these items in nicely so make sure to avoid masks which are too large or outside of your color scheme. Lastly, try to keep the masks limited to only two per room.

Bedroom

The jungle look can also be added to a bedroom when you want to change things up. In addition to the standard uses of a rug, you could hang the rug on the wall since any well-made area rug can be considered an art piece, provided it’s not too large. Since the black and white colors in the rug’s print can virtually goe with any other color, you could choose bedding pieces such as a comforter, sheets or pillows in any color you find appealing. Again, take care to not go overboard on the size of the stripes in one room. If you’ll be placing this same pattern for the rug and bedding, consider purchasing a smaller size rug instead of a larger one. You could also choose a zebra pattern for the sheets if you keep everything balanced.

Focus & Simplicity

Due to the great qualities of a zebra rug, you’ll want to keep it as the focal point so avoid placing too much furniture or other objects in the room which would only serve to distract from its elegance. Additionally, be sure to simplify the design of the room and not use more than two color schemes as they will compete with each other and throw off the balance in the room. All in all, no matter where you place it, a zebra print rug will look great in any room!

Luxury Bedding

When you’re redecorating your bedroom, look into replacing the linens on your bed with luxury bedding. After your mattress and pillows, this is another part of your bedroom that’s worth investing in as it’ll greatly increase your comfort, both visually and physically. Choose a color scheme for your new look and if you want to get fancy, you can go lighter or darker depending on the season.

Luxury Bedding

Quality is Luxury

Keep in mind that when shopping for new bedding, the higher the thread count per square-inch, the smoother and more luxurious the sheet. Most standard bedding will usually be in the 200-300 thread count range. However, it goes up from there with 600 being a nice weight and feel for bedding. Higher end sheets can go up to 1,200 with an almost buttery feel to the sheets.

The type of fibers used to make the bedding also matter. It can be made of 100% cotton or a blend that sheds wrinkles. Luxury bedding can also be made of a satin fabric to add a bit of romance to the room. The shimmer will add beauty and catch the light and the smooth texture of satin is cool to the touch.

Comforters

Some comforters can also be considered luxury bedding. These can be made of down or the newer polyester fill that mimics natural down, i.e. for people who are allergic to feathers. The beauty of a room is heightened by the right bedding. Imagine your spouses surprise when you fix up the bedroom like a romantic oasis. The right sheets and comforter can add elegance or whimsy. With a dust ruffle circling the bed and completing the look, your room will reflect taste and style.

Seasons & Change

Usually, people like to change their bedrooms bedding with the season.

Starting in the Spring, bring in florals and a lighter weight fabric. A cotton blend is excellent at this time for the reduced wrinkling effect and smoothness. You can use colors such as greens in various shades and yellows; peaches are great at this time too. Accent with pillows in the same color range.

In Summer, it is time to deepen the color palette. Think of Summer grass and trees in emerald and sage. Also, bring in shades of rose red and sky blue.

Fall is a time for deeper browns and gold colors to be used. You might consider accenting with metallic edgings and oranges. This season represents the time of harvest so think of the colors of autumn leaves and bring these colors to the forefront. A leaf theme-based comforter would be a good idea at this time.

Winter is next and the use of silver, white, bold reds and greens come into play. Indigo can accent the bedding colors to bring out the lightness of a winter’s day. Some people like to add jewel tones at this time of the year to give a warmer and cozy feeling to the bedroom.

Mix & Match

Remember, when you redecorate your room with new bedding, also think of matching the style and color of the drapes as this can greatly enhance your room’s decor. Experiment with a wide array of colors and bring romance, interest and excitement to your new bedding. When shopping for luxury bedding, you will not need to worry about your options as there are many materials, sizes and a range of prices, low to high, that are available to you. With the right theme and quality selection, you’ll be pleased with your room’s decor and sleep comfortably to boot!
