The rug that is shown with the solid color is wonderful when a bit of texture is needed, and can tie the space with another that is seen from that space.
You can use it with patterned fabrics on the upholstery or window treatments. It could be used with corals, browns and orange tones, or with cooler colors like the greens and blues.
The two patterned rugs shown are soft in their patterns and may be used with transitional rooms, meaning a mix of contemporary and traditional furnishings. Because of the pattern, they could be used as a focal point as in a foyer, or in a conversation area.
So, the next time you are wondering 'where do I start', consider a rug!
