We’ve seen before how floor coverings can elevate a space from something mundane into something marvelous. And just in case you needed more proof, check out these images from Fun on the Floor.

A stairwell becomes even more dynamic with the addition of granny style Afghan squares on the steps and Paul Smith-esque wainscoting. And yes, that is a carpeted moosehead on the wall!

I love the idea of placing a patterned insert within a solid-colored surround and using that as your guideline for arranging furniture. It creates an instant conversation space—and if that pattern happens to involve monkeys leaping across a vivid red background, it’s an instant conversation piece too!

Moroccan interiors are famous for their use of layered woven rugs and textiles to create comfort and aesthetic appeal. Channel Kasbah chic with a carpeted backsplash and a fun DIY revamp on the standard folding chair!

Kids’ rooms lend themselves especially well to carpet treatments; a vibrant playscape gets a little safer with the addition of some colorful cushioning. Plus I have a feeling that the grown-ups have as much fun with this space as the little ones do!
