The Beauty of a Custom Rug Design from Sylvie & Mira
The Beauty of Custom Rug Designs from Sylvie & Mira
When we decided to use Monet's Garden at Giverny as the inspiration for one of our personality-driven interiors, we knew the first thing we needed was the perfect rug, that could evoke the beautiful greens that are the backdrop for all of the colors that bloom in our client's favorite place in the world. Keep reading to see how our custom rug design from Sylvie & Mira brought Giverney to our client's living room.
We decided to use the DeckleDot pattern from Sylvie & Mira, my own textile line, for two reasons.
One reason we picked this pattern for our Giverney-inspired custom rug design was that the torn edge design evokes cotton art paper and is reminiscent of the water's edge, like the lake in the center of the garden at Giverney.
In addition, the little accent color dots were an opportunity to represent the color of flowers blooming.
We initially selected the pattern in a standard green color and then decided to amp up up the green to elevate the garden feel of the space. We wanted this space to feel like the height of summer in the garden, and so green had to be as green as it could get.
We chose colors from hundreds of poms available to custom color a Sylvie & Mira rug.

Final Custom Rug Design
Finally, we had a computer rendering done of the space with the custom rug for our client to approve.
Once the client approved the rendering, we ordered a strike-off. A strike-off is a 1 square foot-sized preview of what the finished rug will look like. This step is important to ensure the colors are perfect.
The other fabrics in the room were also chosen specifically to be fine-tuned with the color selections and to coordinate perfectly with the rug.
We think this custom rug design looks dreamy, summery, and serene in our client's home!
