CREATING AN AURA RUGS OFFER PERSONALITY Janita Singh Rugs that brighten a room in summer will warm it in winter, pictured, AURA'S new summer selection. FRESH TOUCHES Warmer months mean our decorating theme needs an overhaul --- think fun and freshness when decorating this spring and summer. Add accessories in brighter colours and lighter fabrics or draw inspiration from your favourite summer holiday spots. Your focal point can be the living room and you don't need to spend a fortune to turn this into your own summer escape. Think paint --- you may not be able to entirely change colour schemes each season but pick a wall and paint it bright for summer. Pillows, cushions and light throws --- think stripes, shapes and patterns in brave colours. Pictures and displays --- dress up a room with pictures and favourite heirlooms. Knick knacks --- don't forget to arrange a vase of freshly cut flowers from your garden. INTERIOR DECORATING RUGS are an effective way to tie a room together, make a statement and add person- ality to your home. AURA creative director Tracie Ellis says this season's rugs feel luxurious underfoot and come in bold designs and bright colours. Rugs make excellent floor coverings even in summer because they are easy to move, simple to clean and protect wooden floors. Many people decorate their houses with rugs all year but don't forget sum- mer rugs have to be delight- ful and durable. People will more than likely enter the house straight from the garden, so make sure you have the right material for the foot traffic. AURA has just launched a wide selection of summer rugs which are hand-woven in India. ''Our brand-new rugs are hand-woven by amazing ar- tisans in Jaipur, producing a thick, flat-weave rug which showcases the bold designs and colours,'' Ms Ellis says. Rugs that keep your home colourful in summer will brighten the place in cooler months and provide much- needed luxury underfoot. Seen any great ideas?
