15 artistic style area rugs that transform your home

Interior Design Lists Shopping

Recently I asked my Facebook page readers about their biggest challenge when adding art to their homes. Interestingly, and very unexpected, I got several replies that stated “I would really love to add more art to my home, but I don't have the wall space for it”.

There is a solution for this problem! There are many ways to add art to your home, and wall art is just one of them. Big lightbulb moment, right?
I suggested to my readers to include other forms of art, such as abstract drapes or an artsy area rug. The amazing thing is that area rugs have the power to completely transform the mood or vibe of a room. 

Here is my list of 15 fabulous area rugs in artistic style that introduce an artful vibe and unique character to your rooms. Best of all: these rugs are not only fabulous, but are also all very affordable!
