A Question of Values

A Question of Values

Posted by Laura Kenyon on

One of the most requested topics at workshops is color planning. We all know what goes together- we dress ourselves every day. But we get all worked up when it comes to plannning a rug.  What is often forgotten is that we need to plan values with a rug as well as color to get the contrast that makes a rug work. Here's a quick "snippet" on values and contrast ... using up your worms and scraps.  Meet Mr. Moose-

He is so easy. 

1. Pull out greens, browns, roses, and blues from your stash.

2.  Make 3 piles: light, dark, and I don't know. 

3. Hook the moose from the dark pile.

4. Hook the border from the dark pile,the light pile, and the occasional I don't know.

5. Fill in the background from the light pile.

6. Sit back and admire your work.
