A Shaggy Raggy Statement

Using the Shaggy Raggy Rug as a design statement: Thoughts from PoshTots Lead Designer Patty Grogan.

OB-Pink Shaggy Raggy Rug

The shaggy rug was a classic design element during the 60’s and 70’s and is making a big comeback. What’s different? Definitely the colors, there are so many available, but also the texture. Imagine cotton jersey clouds.

Designing your nursery around this style rug offers a great design element and a comfortable alternative that adds warmth to the room. Imagine the softness underfoot as you rock your little one in a comfy nursery glider.

Three steps to making a design statement based around your Shaggy Raggy Rug:

  1. Select your favorite rug from basic neutrals to bold brights that can help set your design ideas in motion.
  2. Select a bright wall color or wall covering and use it to accent one wall in the room that complements the rug.
  3. Add drapery panels to a window and some great wall decorations in complementary colors and wow, a great room has emerged from the start of a simple rug.

Roll Out the Carpet for Annette and Erika

We at Posh are all about some “Kids, Incorporated” design, so we were thrilled to see that one of our rugs was used in a redecorating project done by PoshPals Annette Joseph and Erika Ward! The new family-friendly home office was featured as a “get organized” piece in the January 2013 issue of Better Homes and Gardens.

The producer of the feature is Annette Joseph, a long-time friend of PoshTots and an awesome designer and stylist. A personal high for many of us here at PoshTots was getting to work with Annette on Gwyneth Paltrow’s children’s space in a luxury penthouse in Nashville. It was wonderfully modern while also warm and of course, fun. Another fantastic project was a room for two young men through Room Service Atlanta. A big thanks to the uber-talented Annette and we can’t wait to see her new book!

Erika Ward, a fellow interior designer, is a friend of Annette also. She is the co-founder of Room Service Atlanta, a non-profit that changes the lives of young people by creating safe, comforting environments they can call home. PoshTots was thrilled to help with an RSA design project last fall. We have tons of admiration for Erika as a designer, entrepreneur, philanthropist/do-gooder, and mom of four. It’s great knowing she has a little piece of Posh to help brighten up her home. It definitely brightens our spirits.
