We staged a very nice Mediterranean style home yesterday in Arcadia, CA. It looked great when we were finished, but something was missing. Rugs! The Persian rugs weren't part of my original contract, but the homeowner, Realtor and I all agreed that they were really necessary. Yes, the home had large expanses of beautiful Brazilian Cherry hardwood floors. But in this case, the hardwood floors were too much of a good thing and needed to be subdued a bit. I am truly a Persian rug junkie, and I use them wherever I am able, but I am still always amazed at the warmth and finishing touch a well chosen rug can add to a room. Persian rugs always add a touch of class. A great Persian rug can elevate a not-so-special home to a home buyers will fall in love with.
This is the Living Room after staging, but without rugs.
