Magnolia Home Rugs by Joanna Gaines

We’re huge fans of HGTV’s popular show, Fixer Upper, and are so excited to be carrying Joanna Gaines new line of area rugs.  Joanna’s new collection reflects her simple and fresh, yet timeless style.

Joanna’s line was announced in the Fall, and when we saw it at the High Point Furniture Market, we fell in love and knew we had to have it!

We’re attracted to Joanna’s design creativity, and her feelings about the story behind how these rugs are crafted, as she describes on her blog:

“Something I love about these textiles is that they are made in different places using a variety of old and new world techniques. Some are hand knotted or hooked in India from 100% wool or jute, others are power-loomed in Egypt from polyester, and that’s not even the half of it. The whole process intrigues me. I love knowing that each one of these rugs was made with love and care, no matter what country the artisan who made it is from.”

The blue rug in the photo below is part of Emmie Kay Collection, with a delicate hand-woven pattern work inspired by traditional Nordic sweater motifs.

Joanna is known for her rustic style with modern touches. Many of her designs feature shiplap, which is a Pineapple Girl’s favorite for walls!

The collection features rugs of all sizes and includes both wool and jute rugs. Jute rugs work well in a coastal inspired home. The natural fibers and texture are perfect for a beach house.

How To Mix and Match Fabrics In Your Coastal Home

When choosing decor for a space, fabric is a key element. It’s important to find the right combination for your drapery, furniture and pillows. Many people are intimidated by the different options and unsure how to coordinate different patterns together. We think choosing fabric should be a fun experience! Once you know a few tricks, you can mix and match like a pro.

First, choose your color palette. If it’s blues, multiple tones are a great choice, this gives you more options when selecting accessories.

Typically you fall in love with a pattern within your palette, which is usually bold and becomes your “lead” fabric, from there you can choose less prominent coordinating patterns to pull it all together.

Stripes are always a good choice for your 2nd fabric, as they blend well with ikats, large patterns, small patterns, or just about everything.

The third fabric could be a solid.  If you use a pattern on your throw pillows, you might want a solid on your drapes.  If your sofa is solid, the throw pillows are a great place to add some patterns.

A good rule to remember is the rule of three.  More than three colors or patterns in a room can look busy.

A white, slipcovered sofa is a great canvas for adding patterned throw pillows in colorful fabrics.
