Do you love rug hooking like I love rug hooking?
You don’t have to be an artistic genius to make a really beautiful rug hooking. Hyper realistic designs rarely make an appearance, and rug hooking is so much the better for it. Think Maude Lewis, not so much Alex Colville!

Also, take inspiration from Matisse, Rothko, or Marimekko, and go for big, bold and abstract and you won’t go wrong. Stripes, polka dots, and geometric shapes all make wonderful templates for a rug hooked design. The personality comes with the colour choice and the texture and don’t forget the “je ne sais quoi”.
Case in point- this chair cover.
If you want to get pictorial, you don’t have to get fancy. This house is made up of simple shapes and is still a really appealing design. This rug hooking pic is by Becky Johnson taken at the Textile Museum.
