One of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to add interest and depth to a room is to layer rugs on top of rugs or placing a rug on carpet.  What!?  You can do that?  Absolutely!  It's ingenious! If you have a large room and you cannot afford to purchase the 9X11 or 8X10 beautiful persian rug that you actually need,  do not buy the smaller one and hope that it looks good enough.  It does not! Proportion is everything when making a room beautiful!

It does not have to cost a fortune to make your house beautiful - just a little imagination!
