We Love Colorful Rugs!

Posted in Tips & Trends

While a neutral rug is always a great choice, sometimes you just have to be a little less conservative and go with bold color! We came across these wonderful images on the blog Decorati and we loved how they showed off the appeal of colorful rugs. It really got us thinking of the rewards of taking a decorating risk.

When you look at these rooms take note of how the designer has successfully incorporated these rugs without overwhelming the room. They provide a great lesson in careful room design.


This solid raspberry colored rug grounds this room designed by Jamie Drake for the 2009 Kips Bay Showhouse.

This rug sports a bold rug but it is balanced out by luxurious layered pattern throughout the room.

White is always a great counterpoint to a colorful rug. This rug looks like a piece of art.

Simple furnishings and stripes look fresh and contemporary.

Laura U, Inc. designed this luxe apartment. The bold use of color in the graphic pillows,  rug and artwork keep the room well balanced.


What do you think of these bold rugs? Are they tempting or are you happier sticking with neutrals? Leave a comment and let us know.
