Colonial Mills Rugs Featured in Weekapaug Inn Renovation
August 1, 2013,
Colonial Mills created more than 40 custom rugs for the inn.
The interior renovations were the creation of Taylor Interior Design, which included the Rhode Island-based rug manufacturer in the plans for the Cape Cod-style inn, built in 1899.
"We worked closely with the designers of Taylor Interior Design to create custom combinations to coordinate with the meticulously chosen furnishings for the Inn," said Meredith Thayer, creative director for Colonial Mills. "By developing small swatches in the braid combinations chosen to complement each of the unique spaces, we were able to provide Taylor with samples to work from during the development of the project. It was such a great project to be a part of."
In the weeks leading up to the installation, Colonial Mills produced more than 40 custom rugs for the inn, including three large double-braid, all-natural wool rugs that cover the common area referred to as the SeaRoom.
"The Inn is a wonderful piece of historic New England architecture and as a Rhode Island-based manufacturer of braided-texture area rugs, it is an honor to have been included," Thayer said. "We owe sincere thanks to Taylor Interior Design and all those part of this beautiful project."
