Why we love this pic: Sometimes a refreshing interior update is as easy as rearranging what you already have. The artful decision to lay this rug on a diagonal rather than on a traditional alignment instantly makes this stunning design more dynamic. Meanwhile, the combination of earthy green hues and organic materials gives the look a welcoming feeling, grounded in nature.

The takeaway: Lay your rug on a diagonal for an instant style update.
