Designing an Area around Rug:

  • It is advisable to buy rug of neutral colors so that it would be easier for you to decide color of wall and upholstery. Best choices of rugs color include beige, olive, cream, white, tan, and brown. They won’t look odd. However, if you are working around any specific color theme then buy a rug with matching color but in different tone.
  • If you want your curtains to look subtle then repeat the color you selected for rugs.
  • For the room accessories pick one or two prominent colors of rugs and use them for pillow, floral, lightning, artwork, candle stand, etc.

In the nutshell, if any color is prominent in the rug it should be prominent in the room as well. If the rug color is recessive (that fades into the background. Colors such as lavender, gray or pink) it should be less in the room.
