If you are a little aware of the last decoration trend, you surly didn't miss the avalanche of bold ethnic rug in interior decoration pics. Rugs are one of the most traditional decor item, the twist with this last trend is using bold, bright and colorful pattern. It's the perfect addition to your space if you are tired of grey and white minimal interior. In my opinion those rugs can bring a lot of happiness into any home.
A bold rug works very well with a quiet and natural decor: white walls, wood, leather and natural materials. If you like to add some color on the walls, choose the rug first and then pick one of the shade from the rug for the wall. The usual rooms to use a rug are the living area (pic 1) and the bedroom. The bright rug will become the focus point of the room and spice up the decor. Put attention to the size of the rug when you purchase it, it has to fit your space, you can check those very use full tips to help you choose the right size.
You can also use a rug to delimit a specific area into an open space. You can place it under the table to highlight the dinning area (pic 2). A colorful rug is very convenient to clean and don't show the stain as much as a solid color (sorry I have two kids, I have to be practical).
If you like bold rug but don't feel like you can live with that much color all day long, you can try to place a colorful rug in the transition rooms, like the entryway (pic 4), the staircase (pic 5) or the hallway.
I'm not sure how is it to live on a daily basis with a rug into the kitchen, I feel like it may complicate the cleaning work (remember, we have a two kids and two dogs house here). But it definitely looks amazing and turns a functional kitchen into a cozy place (pic 3).
You don't need to invest into a huge rug, you can also add touch of color with smaller carpets. They will fit perfectly in the bathroom (pic 6). Or you can stage them as wall art. It will look great on a living room or as a headboard (pic 7). You may need to fix one side of the carpet on a wood lattice to keep it straight when hanging on the wall.
So, are you planing on adding a colorful rug to your home decor? Where would you like to have it?
