Need help choosing an area rug

jenparksFebruary 20, 2013
All of my throw pillows have different patterns. I want to purchase an area rug but don't know what rug would look great , should I buy a solid color ? or is another pattern ok ? or should I get rid of some of these pillows so that I don't have too much going on?

I would add a few solid pillows and remove at least 2 of the patterned..Two patterns with solids is enough pattern..For a rug u could do one with some pattern in it. Your sofa is brownish? If it is brown, u need some pillows with brown in them to tie your greys and browns together, your drapes look brown and grey?

Hi Jayme, Ok getting rid of some pillows sounds like a good idea, the Sofa is actually called Aventura Grey , sometimes it looks brownish and sometimes greyish... and the curtains are grey and like a wine/plum . Where did I mess up ? I love the yellow but not sure if that's what I should get rid of ?

One of these type rugs with your colors could work. If u get a patterned rug, I would cut down on the patterned pillows..maybe using a stripe, and solid and/or mixing in one ike the black one in the middle.

You have a really nice room, mixing patterns is so hard to do anyway/and too many gets looking busy..try for some solids, one or two others with a pattern with all of your colors together...It is hard to add a patterned rug in with a lot of other patterns also..

I agree, pick 2-3 of your favorite pillows and put the other once in storage for now. The rug could have some yellow and gray tones.

Jayme, I loved that geometric rug you showed me, i think my hubby wants more of a shaggy rug though... so that will probably meed to be my first decision.. As far as the pillows I'm definetly going to get rid of some i have some that arent my faves in the mix anyway. I love all the images you showed me. I also recently purchased a lamp very similar to the one in the third image so this gives me hope

Jen, we carry larges collection of area rugs. Persian high quality hand tufted area rugs. Just a suggestion,we always tell our customers this, shaggy rugs shed a lot for first month or so, hand made ones that is. Machine made rugs not so much. But hand made rugs do shed a lot, some times more than months. this is their nature. There is a special way to vacuum these rugs. Shedding does not mean that they bad quality. They suppose to do that. At some point you might get frustrated with all the wool all around the living area.

How do you tie in the plum/wine in your drapes to the rest of your room?
