"When placing a rug on carpet, focus on color and pile height."
Rugs on carpet can be tricky.
Hallways are the perfect spot to display artwork or even throw a cabinet into the mix to maximize your storage space but if the hallway is narrow there are a few minor tweaks that can be made easily.
A barn door accent can have several different styles ranging from farmhouse, traditional or even very modern.
Combine texture, color, tall and short, and new and old items to open shelves.
Open shelving is an ideal place to sneak in some storage and to display meaningful items that otherwise wouldn't have a home.
Decorative boxes are great in a stack or on their own and can provide a spot to stash away small items that otherwise end up lost. Mix those with some great framed photos of the family, found sculptural items, some small potted plants (I opt for easy care, drought resistant or faux) and some books and you've got a great collection of texture, color, tall and short, new and old to add interest and personality to your home.

I read a really interesting study from IKEA that came out this past week about how most people don't feel at home in their own home. In fact, "1 in 3 people all over the world say there are places where they feel more at home than the space they live in. For City people this feeling has has increased from 20% in 2016 to 35% in 2018".
The Kate is full of matte black cabinet hardware, a trend to look for in 2018.
