This farmhouse living space has been enlivened with a bold, red rug. Made from wool, it not only looks stylish but will keep your feet toasty and warm. Natural stone on the walls and floor make this room the perfect little country retreat.
Accessories can work wonders to give a living room a brand new look on a budget. Simply swap your traditional theme for something more exotic. The red carpet and large Persian rug create a daring colour clash that shouldn't work in theory, but in fact looks great and really brightens up the room.
From high-pile to flat-weave, wool to sisal, there are countless great rug designs, patterns and textures on the market. Don't shy away from colour, as it can often help to unify a scheme. This bright and beautiful living room has a sunny yellow on the walls and splashes of vibrant pink on the chairs and rug.
This cosy spot is emphasised by the placement of symmetrical furniture. Cream and bright pink combine to create a feelgood vibe in this airy living room. A striped rug placed in the centre echoes the colour scheme elsewhere in the room for a cohesive look.
Re-energise your room with an uplifting rug. It's one of the easiest ways to add colour and transform a look, and it can really take a scheme from simple to striking. Here, a cool coloured wall and neutral carpet are brought to life with a deep red rug in an Middle Eastern-inspired pattern. Bright tones can be offset with cream upolstery and off-white accessories to give your space a cohesive look that feels relaxing and soothing.
This eclectic living room features unique pieces and contrasting colours and textures to create a welcoming, personalised living space. The trick to getting it right is to stick predominantly to one primary colour, and keep large items of furniture neutral. Always use a liner to keep your rug from slipping or creeping. The rug liner should be appropriate for your floor type and also be the right size to fully keep the rug from sliding.
Give bare floors a quick makeover with a well placed rug. Use a favorite rug as the basis of the color scheme in a room. On the other hand, if you add it after you have your furniture in place, you can use the rug to accent or tie in your existing colors. Want to brighten up your living room?
