Staying at home much more over the coming weeks and months, we could all use a refresh of our spaces. Because the Threshold x Studio McGee pieces are simple and neutral, they are easy to mix and match into any style of decor and give that little switch-up we all need. And on the site, there are plenty of inspiration shots to help visualize how to incorporate them with already existing pieces.   

   The idea of layered doormats has been around for a bit now, but if you haven't gotten on board with the trend yet, now might be the time to make it happen as Studio McGee has some great rug options! 

Probably the most important key is to make sure your base rug is large enough so you can see the pattern underneath your coir rug, but not so large where it starts to look like they don't belong together - think of how when matting a piece of art the perfect width and shape of mat can make the difference between highlighting the art instead of detracting from it!

If you opt for a coir doormat with a verbal saying (like "hello"), any rug will pair underneath. However, if you go for a patterned doormat like the blocked printed one above then you will want to consider the pattern of the rug you are layering underneath as well - mixing up the type and scale of print is important for a successful pairing! For example, a floral base rug would not be the best pairing with the block print above since the patterns are too similar. The plaid one, on the other hand, is perfect since it is geometric and the other is organic. The prominence of a dark color in the pattern on the plaid rug also stands out well with the primarily neutral base of the coir rug (vs if a plaid rug was chosen with a tan base).

I couldn't resist finding a source for the dutch door used in the inspiration shot, perfect for letting Spring breezes in! Rustica has a lot of good options - from farmhouse/traditional to a little bit more industrial. Top the entry off by adding a fresh new wreath - loving this artificial citrus and eucalyptus one!

The other category of items from Studio McGee that caught my eye were the art pieces. I love a good gallery art fact I have an entire pinterest board related to them! So, grab a few and group them together.

Or, choose just one art piece to add a little pizzazz to an area of your home like some of the inspiration spaces below.

Lastly, a few really nicely designed pieces from Studio McGee to round out a room refresh... 

striped woven cotton throw to lay on porch chairs for those soon to come beautiful Spring nights,

small potted artificial olive tree, just the right size for curating a corner of the kitchen, and

an open-weave square handled market basket that reminds me of an antique picnic basket, perfect for sitting or hanging in an entryway to display fresh picked flowers or corral Spring scarves or bills ready to go out the door for the postman.

What are some of your favorite pieces from the collaboration?
