Is decorative rugs in your home best idea?
Decorating your home can be one of the most tiring or fun things to do. Without a doubt it can prove challenging, especially if you have a very decorative carpet and have no idea what to do with it. This is the issue with many modern rugs - they are just so colorful that you immediately want them, but afterwards have no idea where to put them. Well fear not, you are not the only one with such problems! Luckily, numerous designers, such as ingenious Bunny Williams, worked out some useful tips on how to decorate with such elaborate carpets.
The best thing to do, is to work out your color palette. Chose the main hue that will dominate the space and one or two secondary ones. While your first instinct might be to get a rug in your main color, make sure to never do that! It is infinitely better to pick a carpet in those additional colors, so it will fit with decor better.
Size might be another problem for some. Modern area rugs are challenging enough for amateur decorators, but decorative ones? Terrible! No need to worry about it though. Big decorative carpets are bound to draw attention, so use it to create a memorable interior! Instead of hiding your rug underneath the furnishings, make it the center of your room.
And lastly - patterns. If you plan on making the carpet only piece of decor in an accommodation you have no need for worrying, but what if there are a few other patterned things in there, such as covers or pillows? In that case, try looking for a common ground for them. It might be similar color or design or even texture! However, if everything fails, you can always go for electic and eccentric look. Nobody will notice!
