It's a given to have a favorite piece in the house. Whether it's a rug, a seating piece, or a tiny tabletop decor, we make sure that it can instantly captivate the attention of guests. Many homeowners maximize their favorite pieces by using it as the star in most of their vignettes and room setups. Going this route helps one save on cash while improving a lackluster corner, too! The idea of shopping your closets isn't anything novel or profound, but it can make a remarkable impact on your home's look. The concept is simple—invest in one major piece that you love and shop your closets for the rest of the items you'll need.

In this special feature, we're working with a Lorena Canals rug as the major piece and other previously owned items. The final looks are snug, inviting, and achievable. Get started with these ideas:
