With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to capture the spirit of autumn by warming up your home with this season’s hottest colors, trends and patterns! Whether you’re dressing up your decor with foliage and pumpkins, or styling your sofa with heavier blankets, you’ll find that it’s the small details that go a long way when decorating your home this season.
Here are a few of our favorite ways to warm up your home:
1. Layer Area Rugs
Layering area rugs will ensure your feet avoid cold tile and hardwood floors during the fall and winter months! It’s an easy way to add color and texture to your home fashion. For some quick and easy tips on layering area rugs, check out our blog post “3 Different Ways to Use an Area Rug” here: http://bit.ly/1vf0ALp
You can use warmer colors such as the aurora red and misted yellow found in the KORHANI home Yvette area rug:
Or, you can opt for darker, opulent, and extravagant shades such as the golden hues, the majestic and powerful green, and the exotic red found in the Assunta area rug:
2. Update your home with throw pillows and heavy blankets
As the weather gets colder, everyone tends to spend more and more time indoors. Cozy up your home with heavier pillows and blankets such as fur, velvet, and knits to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
3. Decorate with Fall Foliage
Lastly, give your room a makeover with some fall foliage such as beautiful fall bouquets, bowls of freshly picked apples, or gourds and pumpkins.
Rugs are the perfect statement pieces for home fashion, and are easy to change up every season. They can quickly transform your home and give it a fresh new look. What we love about area rugs is that they offer much more than function! Here are our top three unique ways to use an area rug:
1. Using Area Rugs as Wall Art
With fashion for home quickly evolving season after season, it’s no wonder people are finding nontraditional uses for home items. One of the latest trends this season is using area rugs as decorative wall art to create a focal point in any room.
KORHANI home Morro area rug (as seen above) is part of our new Arizona Muse Collection and can be found at korhani.com.
2. Layering Rugs
A hot design trend this season is layering rugs! Mixing different styles and textures is a great way to get started on adding a personal touch to your room. Aside from saving money by buying smaller and affordable rugs, pairing rugs together also adds personality to a room!
If you change your home décor as often as you change your wardrobe, consider using a neutral base for the first layer to give yourself more room to experiment with different styles and patterns with the second layered rug.
3. Using Area Rugs Where You Wouldn’t Expect It
To add a touch of elegance and color to your home’s interior staircase, add a carpeted runner! Stairs are one of the highest traffic areas in your home, so naturally they get a lot of wear. Rather than replacing your stairs, add an area rug. For more durability, you can try using stylish outdoor area rugs! This not only protects your stairs, but also adds a stylish impact to your home fashion!
KORHANI home offers a made to measure feature for many of its designs on www.korhani.com, where you can build the perfect runner.

One of our favorite trends this summer is shifting our outdoor décor inside the house. KORHANI home offers a variety of area rugs that will look gorgeous on the patio, or can be smoothly transitioned inside to give your home a trendy statement. Similar to accessories such as scarves and hats that can quickly change the look of an outfit; using area rugs as home fashion can be exceptionally versatile and can be used to alter interior design themes.
Breaking the barrier between indoor living areas and outdoor spaces is one of the hottest 2014 trends in home fashion. We can finally say goodbye to the days when backyard fashion meant throwing a few chairs outdoors. To give your outdoor space a makeover, add accent pieces such as bright pillows, a bold area rug, and stylish sofas.
One of our favorite reasons to use outdoor décor inside is due to its durability and stylish presence. There’s no longer a need to be worried about accidental breaks, spills or stains! In order to simultaneously get the most out of your investment and create a fashionable appeal to your home, KORHANI home recommends these reversible rugs for versatility:

There’s a new tropical storm trend forecast for this summer, and it’s filled with palm prints and tropical florals. From fashion accessories to décor, these retro prints can take your outfit from poolside to a night on the town, or your home from modern chic to a relaxed, tropical villa. As one of the hottest styles this season, palm prints add syle to both indoor and outdoor spaces.

Happy Canada Day! In honour of this great country’s birthday, we thought we’d share some throwback photos from the runway presentation of our Canada Collection.
On March 8th, 2012, KORHANI home showed our exciting “Canada Collection” runway show to an international audience in Berlin, Germany at the Canadian Tourism Commission’s annual Canada ITB event. The collection, which celebrated the Canadian story was unveiled in a runway show which fused home décor with couture, for a once in a lifetime journey through the Canadian cultural landscape. Creative Director, Kirsten Korhani envisioned a collection for this event that would highlight the raw and rustic beauty of the Canadian landscape, it’s rich heritage and unique cultural emblems. Check out some of the designs created, below.
Reclaimed wood, industrial fixtures, concrete, dark neutral colours, metal furniture and accents – in recent years, the world of design has been dominated by the industrial design trend, which is quite dark and masculine. Whether you are, in fact, a bachelor, looking to update your pad, or simply have a more masculine design esthetic, we decided to put together some Bachelor Pad inspiration.
Adding masculine touches to your space is quite easy, and industrial accent pieces are widely available in most retailers. You can also add a dark accent wall to your space by painting one wall a dark grey, or of you are really bold, black. This can become the focal point of your room for artwork or your entertainment center. And since your floors are probably wood, how about adding in a KORHANI home area rug in a masculine pattern?
