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:

A girl's Boho room


Prints, colors, and woven pieces take the spotlight in this cozy space. If you only have a mattress to work with, you can anchor the look using your rug then keep the vibe warm and relaxing with woven pieces, pillows, and baskets for storage. No need to spend thousands as you can recycle baskets found in your kitchen, extra pillows from your bedroom, and chic accessories that you've been keeping for years.

Shop for a Lorena Canals rugs at Incy Rooms. The Child's Peacock Chair is available at Pottly N Tubby.

A colorful reading nook


If you're planning to incorporate tons of striking colors into your setup, a neutral-colored rug can keep the look balanced and not overdecorated. Take your cue from the photo above by opting for DIY wall accents in lively hues, solid-colored seating pieces, and storage essentials in rich colors.

A classic boys' room


Touches of blue and green are commonly used in boys' rooms. A neutral area rug gives it a flexible twist, making it easier for the owners to change the look when the occupant finally outgrows the said colors. To make it easier for you to change the look every once in a while, incorporate it through pillows, decor, and wall accents.

You can find wooden cube storage units at Le Petit Mamon. The carabao head is available at Flying Dutchman. Shop for cute robot clocks at Mumuso.
