Hence, people look for a feel and look of luxury, sumptuousness, and relaxation. And nothing says this better than the floor you place your bare feet on.

Modern Carpet and Rug Trends
Call it what you will – the library, the best room or whatever – one way of adding value with interior design is to show that your home is one that can adapt and flex to fit with different styles of living. One aspect of interior design that can do this is vintage or the adding of classic designs, colors, and patterns to a room that highlights the flexibility within a home.
