With all the excitement around the launch of our new Loloi collections, so many of you asked if we were going to be doing another mix and match post! Well you’re here! This is it.

I have had the most fun playing musical rugs around my home and styling them every which way. I have more rug content planned for our house, but I’m taking it slow and enjoying every sweet moment of it. All 7 collections are unique and special to me, but each collection was designed to pair seamlessly with one another. So whether you have a Jules or Polly, you can roll out a Francis, Humphrey, or Chris to go with it! Here in the picture above we have a Humphrey in the dining room and a Francis in the living room. They are two cute peas in a pod. So if you’re in an open floor plan home or want to have multiple rugs on the same floor (and you should) here’s some Loloi rug pairings to reference!

Mixing and Matching Guidelines

I hope the key takeaway here is to have fun with mixing patterns! I love seeing some contrast in colors and patterns from room to room. For example, the Humphrey in the dining room is very bold and colorful with a heavy plaid pattern. I wanted the neighboring rug in the living room to be a bit more soft and subtle so the Silver Sky works so well. The same applies to walls! If you have a patterned wallpaper in one room, then the walls in the neighboring rooms could be either painted or have a more simple wallpaper. It’s all about balance! I also pay attention to colors and undertones so that rugs flow and connects from one room to the next. Here’s a bunch of pairings to get you started!

    Congrats on your new rug collection – they are beautiful. I have a question about the Humphrey Ivory Multi. Is there dark green in it? Or are those horizontal stripes all black? I can’t quite tell!

    Thanks!!! I’ve been waiting for a post like this! I have the Jules Terracotta and was wondering if you had more options to mix with it, other than what you had posted? Thanks 😊

    • Hi! I would recommend the Chris Dove Santa Fe. Terracott Multi has some orange and yellow tones in it that I think will be really complimented by the Dove Santa Fe. It’s shockingly beautiful in person.

    Hi! I have the Loloi Layla Antique Moss rug in my dining room and I’d love to pair with with another Loloi from your collection in my living room! Any recommendations?

    I have the Jules Lagoon Brick, and I love the polly pairing but was wondering which other you would think besides the Francis natural pebble? Love all of these!

Here’s the crazy thing about me and inspiration: If you were to go into my bathroom inspiration board on Pinterest, there are bathrooms for sure, but there are also kitchens, there are closets, there are mudrooms, and there are hallways of houses! I’m not looking to copy and paste an inspirational image. I’m taking notes […]
