Rugs crafted from wool and silk are both surprisingly practical options for the home. Although these materials may seem too delicate to display on the floor (where they are likely to fall prey to kid’s football boots and muddy shoes post Sunday-morning-walk) wool and silk rugs are surprisingly strong and will prove robust enough for even the busiest homes!

Whether you choose a classic pattern in subtle colours or a bold print in vibrant shades, a rug will add elegance and warmth to hallways, living rooms, bedrooms and even bathrooms. Being placed on the floor however, rugs are more prone to general wear and tear and if spillages occur, it is likely to be the rug which suffers most! In case this happens, we have put together some tips on caring for both wool and silk rugs, so that yours will always stay looking its best!

It is also the perfect time to declutter and organise the home. A January interiors detox is an excellent excuse to stay in during the colder months and means you don’t have to undertake the annual clear out in the Spring; when tidying is likely to lose out to sitting in the garden in the sun! 

However motivated you are, an assault on clutter can be daunting, so we have put together some tips on making it make it more manageable and also suggested pieces from our collection which, in our opinion, work wonders at concealing clutter!
