Rockin' Rugs: Decorating with Patterned Rugs
From Coco + KelleySometimes a space calls for a large pattern, but I'm not sure I want to fill it with a lot of color. In these cases I find a distinct patterned rug in grays or other neutrals that fits my space. I like to carry the neutral color through the space with the paint color and upholstery. Doing this helps the large pattern stand out.

Looking to add just a touch of color? Think about a patterned rug that stands out! The example below isn't completely orange, but the few orange stripes make a huge difference. The small bit of orange adds life to the space without overwhelming you with color. Stripes are classic and fit well with this linear space. I love this look!

When we think of patterned rugs we typically think of organic shapes. I like to mix up my spaces and use geometric patterns. You can use geometric rugs with bright colors or softer neutrals, depending on the look you're trying to achieve You know I like color, especially in the look below!
Looking for something a bit more in trend? There are several patterns trending now, like chevrons and ikat. I like this modern graphic pattern because it's refreshing and colorful at the same time. If you're looking to take your space from boring to current, a rug is the easiest way to do that. And the best part is, the rug can be changed when you want a new look!
If you're interested in pattern, there are several ways to incorporate it into your space and several ways to use it in a rug. Rugs can be changed often so you can continuously update your space to fit your feeling of the moment. The most important thing is to make your home feel like YOU. Pick the rug that represents your life!
