Bring on the Pattern

Pattern does not need to be as bold and daring as others might think, in fact, we love the touch of having a light pattern that works in two neutral hues in a minimalistic manner.

Pattern is always a good idea; however, when you’re working with a rug you want to select one that offers a repetitive pattern time and time again. The idea is for the pattern to become the main focus of the room without taking away from it.


A floral touch works exceptionally well when you want to liven up a neutral theme that needs color and appeal.

Floral has become a top favorite for many who want to add color and pattern all at once. The key to a floral rug is using hues that blend well with the room yet have a hint of vibrancy. Consider a floral rug with a flew wild colors that seem to blend perfectly together.

Neutral Bits

Neutrals can sometimes be considered “boring” but in all actuallity, they can be bold and fun, pair them with other deeper neutral shades to add a hint of contrast throughout.

Unlike, bold hues or daring patterns a neutral rug is a classic staple not only will it work well in the room, but it adds a classic cohesiveness that simply makes sense. Think of it as the item you didn’t know you needed.

For a feminine touch, a fur rug is a way to go. Not only will it add texture, but it has the feminine aesthetic that you would want and need to brighten up the room. You might even want to consider a large rug instead of a smaller one to create a grand effect.

Striped Please

To widen a smaller room consider larger stripes and for larger rooms go for smaller stripes in order to create an expanding contrast.

A striped rug is a great idea when you want to add color and texture all at the same time. Additionally, the rug will give you a focal point for the room, this allows you to have a character emphasizing display.
