What is new in the world of rugs

A great way to bring a fresh look to a room is through a fresh accessory. Area rugs are a great way to make a big impact to any space. I love what I’m seeing for the new direction of rugs. I’ve pulled together a few options that offer a lot of versatility and fresh style for any space.

First, the beauty of a traditional rug, but in soft colors and a bit of a fading or aging can completely change the look of a room. 

The next is the look of the contemporary rug. This style of rug has become very popular and can be mixed with traditional or transitional designs.

A contemporary style rug can reference the pattern that is used or the material that it’s made of. A couple of great options are mixing a hide and wool, and the mixing of wool and other materials to create a fresh new look. 

Let’s take a look at some patterns that are easy to mix and match with transitional and traditional styles. Tone on tone and geometric patterns are a great way to make a space feel more casual yet elegant, and easy to feel at home.

I love the look of this soft geometric rug mixed with the farmhouse style. This is a great look for anyone who has a modern farmhouse style and would like a fresh look. The mixing of the textures and the softness of the fabrics makes it a great place to spend your time.

The last shift we'll talk about when it comes to rugs, is where to find them. You really can find great product just about anywhere these days! It doesn’t have to be a super high-end store or direct from the manufacturer. Don’t overlook your big box stores or excess inventory.

Consider how you can create a fresh look by adding a new rug to your favorite room. This can be a new foyer rug making your entry welcome and inviting, or a beautiful new rug to make your bedroom or guest room feel special.
