Medallion Rug Gallery Assists Popular Interior Design Blogger With Refurbishment Project

The Interior Designer Behind the Popular Nest by Tamara Blog Recently Enlisted the Help of Medallion Rug Gallery to Help Her Find the Perfect Handmade Area Rug for a Refurbishment Project

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - September 10, 2013) - Nest by Tamara is one of the most popular interior design blogs, and it is written from the point of view of an interior designer who lives and works in New York City. Tamara's readers were recently treated to an explanation about the techniques that the interior designer used to refurbish her family's beach home in East Hampton. This extensive project has been taking place slowly over the past 14 summers, and the results showcase how important little touches such as paint color, area rugs and accessories are to the overall look of a home.

After utilizing the same area rug for 13 years, Tamara was looking for something different that would help tie the entire living room together. Medallion Rug Gallery was pleased to help her with her search, and Tamara selected a handmade area rug that has an antique look and a color scheme that complements the rest of the room. Tamara placed her new wool rug underneath the dining table, and her large group of regular readers was given a look at the final results in a recent blog entry.

The blogger went into great detail about the look and feel of the handmade area rug that she described as "elegant" and "surprisingly soft and plush." These qualities are typical of the collectible area rugs that Medallion Rug Gallery carries, and they also represent a few of the major differences between selecting a rug that was handmade by a weaver and created by a factory machine. 

Medallion Rug Gallery has been in business for almost 35 years, and they have a proven history of acquiring a diverse selection of brand new and antique area rugs. This family owned and operated company is based out of California, but they have an online store that enables rug collectors from around the world to peruse their latest selections. The rug that Tamara received was made from wool, and the company also features several other handmade options. 

Many of the new area rugs that Medallion Rug Gallery offers were handmade by tribal weavers in Pakistan, China, Iran and India. The company also has a long list of antique options that come from these same countries, and this makes Medallion Rug Gallery one of the top choices for people who enjoy collecting handmade area rugs.

Tamara Matthews-Stephenson has been writing Nest by Tamara since 2008, and the blog was voted number one in the category of interior design by Modenus. Tamara also writes for a wide variety of magazines, and she continues to work as an interior designer for clients in New York City.
