I am all for designing a space that is neutral friendly and classic to the core. But usually I need to add some layer of color somewhere in the space. Most likely I will try and add it in the rug, but you could add color with chic and stylish light fixtures, furniture or even just a few colorful home accessories.
My fave are rugs, they're a rooms best friend, didn’t you know? They add warmth, personality, color and texture. If you get tired of the rug, swap it to a new room. I’m constantly rearranging my rugs and placing them everywhere.
Above is a living space that is dripping with cool and calm. With one decision to place a bright, southwest inspired rug, the space comes alive. And it doesn’t clash with anything else going on in the room.
This rug isn’t overly colorful. It has just enough pattern and color to add some texture to this room. It also compliments the pillows and wood tones, bringing the entire room together.
White spaces are showing up everywhere. If you like this trend but still need some color, take advice from this room and add some primary colors in your rug.
Also because they added colorful books to the shelves, the rug pops that much more!
For a classic approach to this trend, use a traditional rug with more muted colors. It still adds personality in a very calm way.
