This layering trend is going to take over living rooms in 2017

Very occasionally, more is more.

One sure way to make a room feel cosy and add character? Roll out a rug. And, if you're feeling especially daring, make it two or three. Layering rugs, whether on carpet or hardwood floors, is a smart and simple way to give a room texture and take on another trend: pattern-mixing.

The unexpected contrast of weaves and prints may have guests doing a double-take but, if done well, layered rugs can pop in a playful way and, more practically, pull a space together.

The trick is picking patterns and colours that are complementary but still different enough. For example, a tightly striped red-and-cream rug would be too much against a tiny checkered rug, but a larger diamond-checked design in black-and-white is just right.

The result can yield a bohemian-luxe look, or a cosy rustic or vintage vibe — all depending on how you arrange them. Doubled- and tripled-up textiles are a look we've seen before, but they're trending now more than ever. We're taking these rooms as proof that the home décor trend is here to stay...

Layering rugs to add dimension

Rather than fight the low ceilings of this bedroom in a schoolhouse-turned-cottage, the owners embraced the size of the space, cosying up the floor with a green rug over carpet. Ironically, filling out the room added dimension, which makes it appear larger.
