Shaynna Blaze has ventured into floor rugs, creating a six-piece range in collaboration with The Rug Collection. In designing the Textured Coast collection, the Selling Houses Australia host, The Block judge, Taubmans creative director, author and renowned
interior designer says she was inspired by the textures and colours of the Australian
"Like the ever-changing moods of the ocean, I wanted the designs and colours of the rugs to take on different depths and textures from every direction," Blaze says.
"The rugs not only look textural but feel soft underfoot, with carving representing the rippling sands and coral from the ocean floor."
The designs feature a calming colour palette of neutrals and greys, and are crafted from 100 per cent hand-tufted New Zealand wool blend and art silk.
Each design is available in two sizes: 160x230cm ($1295) and 200x290cm ($1795).
Our favourites include Ocean Floor, which Blaze says resembles "randomly scattered coral litters the ocean floor in delicate patterns", and Driftwood: "an early-morning stroll along the beach leads to the discovery of the charcoal remains of bonfires from the night before".
