Animal hides make such great rugs to step onto first thing in the morning, but if you have a dark wood floor, a cow hide might be too dark for the space. Opt for a lighter hide like this reindeer rug. There’s no harm in going classic in the rug department. The bright colors and lively pattern on this beauty will make a great show piece when you lay it on your dark wood floor.
Pick where you go bold: While your style to bringing in a bold rug probably goes along with your powerful personality and lifestyle, choose carefully what areas of the room to continue your bold aesthetics. If you choose to do a bold area rug, then keep your furniture neutral with patterned accent pillows.
Design your room around the rug: If you are fortunate to have a blank slate in your room, why not start with the rug, and build the decor around it? This is a great way to start with a bold color, such as orange, yellow, or red and then bring in pops of color in home decor accessories around the room. Consider using neutrals on the walls in whites, beiges, grays, or coffee tans to make the dominant color sing throughout your space.
Black and white are neutrals and their use in interior design is interesting in the sense that these two colors can both stand out dramatically and blend in seamlessly. It all depends on the strategy chosen and the ambiance desired. An area rug has the means to make a powerful statement in a room’s décor.
