Layered Rugs Add Personality to an Eclectic Home Office

Why we love this pic: With its stream of teeny tiny cacti and eclectic mix of textures and materials, this home office is all kinds of inviting. But it's the artful use of area rugs that really packs a personality punch. The choice to layer a traditional rug on top of a contemporary one lets you know that the dweller isn't afraid to break design rules, resulting in a unique look that's full of personal charm and intrigue.

The takeaway: Design rules are meant to be broken.
