Area rug placement can be tricky. If a rug is too small, it looks like a decorating mistake and can make the room look choppy. If it’s placed in an odd spot, it could make your decor look disjointed or unbalanced. How do you make it look right? Make sure you pick the right rug size.
This multicolored rug hits the nail on the head in both adding movement and color to a fairly angular and neutral space. Notice how the rug itself is positioned at an angle, almost as if the swirls had a mind of their own and laid down where they wanted. (Although I’m sure placement had more to do with optimizing the beautiful window view for dinner guests than with an inanimate swirl coup…) With its many colors and interesting pattern, the rug would camouflage many evidences of kid dining.
Dyeing an antique rug can make it work in modern, sleek settings. When the rug is a much bolder shade than what traditionally comes to mind at the thought of antique rugs, it becomes the focus of the room without losing its vintage appeal. The rug in the above image could fit very easily in a majestic Turkish palace, adding a slice of luxury to a modern bedroom.
I’ve always loved the look of rugs in a dining room. Something about the graphic on the floor set against (or to distract from?) the legginess of the table and chairs just makes me happy. However, as the mother of four young kids, I’ve come to view dining room rugs with a pretty critical eye. Can they gracefully handle spilled grape juice? Will you see this morning’s (or, let’s be honest, yesterday’s) smashed cheerios? Will the stain of an errant strawberry live with us forever?
